Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Lilac Cottage is the archetypal dream home. A lovely Grade II Listed, thatched cottage, believed to date back in parts to the sixteenth century, with dormer windows on both the front and the back of the property. The house is complemented by a pretty, part-walled garden, with generous ornamental borders. Indoors you will find a home that has been beautifully looked after and provides everything you need for stylish, comfortable living. In spite of its age and the wealth of exposed beams, ceiling heights are up to modern standards, so there is no need to constantly stoop to avoid bumping your head. With its combination of charm, style and modern convenience, Lilac Cottage fulfils its promise wonderfully.
