The property is approached via a wrought iron pedestrian gate and a paved path winds through the pretty front gardens and to the conservatory front door.
The conservatory, being a latter addition, provides a wonderful and versatile space, stretching along the front of the cottage and with French doors leading straight to the garden. The original front door leads into a living room with parquet timber flooring, exposed ceiling timbers and a brick built fireplace with inset 'Hunter Herald' multi-fuel stove. With a staircase leading to the first floor, there is a door to the rear hall and a door to the sitting room/snug.
The rear hall provides a useful space for a fridge/freezer and general storage.

With inset sink and space for a freestanding cooker there is plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine. There is a small step down and a door to a further reception room currently utilised as a snug and also accessed from the living room. With brick built fireplace and a further 'Hunter Herald' multi-fuel stove there is parquet timber flooring and a window to the front. Also on the ground floor, next to the snug is a shower room allowing for the potential for the snug to be utilised as a further bedroom.
On the first floor are three bedrooms. The main bedroom is located at the far end of the property and with a window to the front, is accessed via the third bedroom which could be used as a dressing room if preferred. The upstairs bathroom adjoins the main bedroom allowing it to be utilised as an ensuite. The second bedroom which is currently utilised as a guest bedroom has a window to the front elevation.
The upstairs bathroom is of a good size and is fully tiled with a window to the side and a panelled bath, WC and wash hand basin. There is a large airing cupboard housing the hot water tank and a heated towel rail.
The cottage benefits from a delightful south facing garden to the front, beautifully maintained by the current owners, it has been separated into a number of areas. Adjoining the conservatory is an area laid to lawn, bordered by beds planted with mature specimen plants and bushes with slate chippings. There is a hedged border to the front of the property providing privacy from the lane.
There is a delightful terracotta paved terrace to the front of the conservatory with space for a small table and chairs. A clematis clad rose arch leads to a barbeque terrace with brick built barbeque and a honeysuckle clad timber pergola. The remaining garden is mainly laid to paving and slate chippings providing areas for potted plants along with a flint rockery area.
