Set within a communal green space, the property has the benefit of a private patio area directly to the front of the property with pleasant low wall and trellis screening. When our clients purchased the property it is fair to say it was in great need of love and attention and they have certainly set about their task well.

At the end of the room is a living area with an exposed brick chimneybreast featuring a cast iron wood burner on a tiled hearth. From the kitchen through an internal wooden cottage style door (which incidentally are fitted to all rooms) one enters the living room, the principal reception area of the home. This room has a light and airy feel and a feature exposed brick wall facing you, attractive wood effect laminate flooring throughout and a spindled staircase off to the first floor accommodation with useful open under stairs cloaks/storage area. From the living room there are two openings into the dining room and these openings provide a semi open plan feel to the reception area. The dining room absorbs the outside space into the home by way of French doors directly onto the patio area itself and further windows overlooking the communal gardens. On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms, with the master being of a notable size and benefiting from an en-suite shower room with stunning appointment. The guest bedroom continues the cottage theme and features an exposed brick fireplace housing a cast iron feature fireplace and this room has the benefit of a walk-in wardrobe. There is a further double bedroom and a family bathroom which features a classic three piece white suite with roll top freestanding bath with ball and claw feet. UPVC double glazing and gas central heating via a 'Worcester' combination boiler situated in the kitchen are installed. Externally, there is a combination of communal green space central to the development itself in addition to the private patio terrace for sole use by Mill Cottage. The property also has the benefit of a garage lying a short walkable distance away from the property with additional off-road parking in front. It should be noted that there is an annual service charge of £200 which relates to the upkeep of the communal areas.
