The Property x . Trethenal Cottage has long remained in the same family and is available on the open market for the first time in over 40 years. A detached old stone and cob cottage, the property has been extremely well maintained and sensitively updated by the present owners, including double glazing throughout and under floor heating in the kitchen and bathroom, whilst retaining much of the original character, including old beams, wood panelling and some wood panelled latched and braced doors. Surprisingly light for a period cottage, the living room and bedroom are both double aspect and enjoy wonderful garden and rural views. Currently one bedroom, the property sits on a relatively private plot approaching one fifth of an acre and has retained the shell of an old stone piggery, thus there is possible scope to extend, subject to the required planning and building consents.
