Description

Cleavers is possibly one of the oldest surviving properties in the town. Behind an 18th century facade, which gives little clue to the scale and style of the original structure, lies a sixteenth century cottage of exceptional charm and historical interest. Although now comprehensively refurbished and well presented the property has been little altered over the years and includes much of the original timber framework, plaster panels and door frames. Hand-crafted painted cabinets of excellent quality have enhanced the principal rooms. Of particular note is the wealth of structural timbers and beams all of which remain in their original state without stain or paint treatment. The entrance hall with tiled floor leads to the large principal room (currently used as a dining room) with good ceiling height, inglenook fireplace and stripped wooden floors. Double doors lead to the kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted painted units with wooden work surfaces and integrated appliances, a door opens on to the garden. Stairs lead down from the dining room to the sitting room (lower ground floor) with cloakroom. To the first floor there is a lovely galleried landing with window over looking the garden. The large master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, exposed roof timbers and feature fireplace. There are two further double bedrooms and a bathroom.

Outside
To the rear of the house there is an attractive and private courtyard garden with grape vine, and other mature shrubs. There is also an outside sink and work area. A rear pedestrian gate leads out behind the cottages towards the car park. There is no dedicated parking to the property but the free public car park lies approximately 50 yards of the rear gate.
