Description - 3 Lattiford Cottages is an endearing and deceptively spacious 4 bedroom cottage which occupies an end-of-terrace position in a semi-rural location and represents a fantastic full-time or second home. Lattiford Cottages was originally built as a terrace of four properties, with the end two now joined to form number 3 yet, aside from two staircases, the property bears none of the hallmarks of starting out as two separate dwellings; a smoothly flowing, classical layout throughout both floors suggests to the unknowing that this property was constructed as the comfortable and well proportioned home found here today.
The property is presented in good order and retains several characterful features including flagstones in the hallway and sitting room and several fireplaces with working fires in the dining and sitting rooms, creating charming, relaxing spaces for any occasion.
