Property Description

Full description


A most delightful semi-detached period cottage, believed to date back to the 1830s and sympathetically extended in 2008 by the present owners to provide additional accommodation.  The cottage is constructed of brick elevations under a slate roof, with some of the original small pane cast iron window frames made by the renowned local firm, Taskers, the remaining French doors and windows having been replaced with hardwood painted double glazed units.  The cottage is beautifully presented and comprises an attractive sitting room with Victorian style fireplace, spacious family dining room with French doors overlooking the main garden, a study (which could be used as an occasional fourth bedroom) and a well fitted kitchen with range and integrated appliances.  There is also a cloakroom and separate utility/boiler room off the hallway.   To the first floor there is a master bedroom with en suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom.  The gardens have been beautifully landscaped and are a particularly attractive feature of the cottage.  There is a garage/workshop with ample parking to the rear.  

Agent’s Note:  An internal viewing is highly recommended
