Agents note
This is a charming period cottage set down a quiet lane which we understand is adopted by the highways authorities. The property has been well looked after and maintained over many years by its current proud owners. The multi fuel stove in the living room features a back boiler which when necessary will supply hot water to the radiators as an automated alternative to using the LPG boiler. The drainage system to the house is by private septic tank.

A rear elevation of blue lias is due to be repointed in lime mortar in Spring 2017, the vendor will either pay for this work or reduce the agreed price by that of the estimate

No Onward Chain
Our clients will, if need be, move out to rented accommodation should that suit the purchaser.
