The Property
Shell Cottage boasts an abundance of original features from its beautiful beams to its brick inglenook fireplace and is believed to date back to the 1600's. Surprisingly the property is not listed and has been
lovingly updated by the current owners.

From the front door you are welcomed into the cottage via a small entrance porch. This in turn proceeds into the sitting room which has a lovely fireplace being the main focal point of this room. The room is very cosy with a window to front aspect, solid oak flooring and exposed beams. The kitchen/breakfast room is fully fitted with a range of wall and base units, with space for appliances and dining furniture. The room is lovely and light, benefiting from a vaulted ceiling.

From the rear lobby you can access the garden and shower room - with a large built in utility cupboard, perfect for a washing machine/tumble dryer. The shower room has recently been refitted with a large shower unit, wc and vanity basin. Also on the ground floor is a study/third bedroom.

Up on the first floor are two spacious double bedrooms situated just off the landing space. The master bedroom has windows to front and side aspect, a velux to the rear aspect and exposed brickwork.

The property is approached down a pathway with a quaint front garden, being mainly shingled with brickweave pathways running through. Also in this garden is a seating area and oil tank. The rear gardens are fully enclosed with a lovely patio area and pathway which leads down the garden to the rear. The gardens are immaculate with a number of trees, flower beds and potted areas - ideal for those who want a low maintenance garden. In addition there is a useful garden store. At the back of the garden is a number of raised vegetable beds and trees providing shade and seclusion.

'The property has allocated parking and the vendor also advises that visitor parking is available.'
