Full description

This detached cottage dates back to 1824; Cordwainers (meaning shoe makers) was originally two cottages that were merged in 1905 to make one large family home. Entering the cottage you immediately walk into a front reception room with original shop cabinet and bay fronted window. The first floor staircase leads off to the rear of the room where the first two bedrooms and en-suite shower room can be found. A part glazed door then leads into a large rear reception room that stretches across the back of the cottage and links the two cottages perfectly together. The room has two rear aspect windows, a door to the garden and a lovely recessed “nook” perfect for curling up with a good book. Walking past exposed beams the cottage offers a further reception room to the front with wood burning stove, access to a walk-in larder, the kitchen which sits to the rear of the cottage and a second staircase leading to two further bedrooms and the large family bathroom. Leaving the kitchen you enter the rear garden which is a beautiful sun trap and a mix of lawn and patio offering complete privacy. To the rear of the kitchen there is a studio/workshop, separate laundry room and passageway access to a side gate (this is for access/drop-off only). A further brick built building houses the oil tank and log store. Outside the front of the cottage there is parking for up to two vehicles. The cottage has oil fired central heating and the majority has timber double glazing.
