Full description

Cross Cottage is a beautiful period property set in the heart of Sutton Valence with very pretty surroundings of other period properties. The property is detached and set over four floors and is beautifully and creatively presented by the present owners to a very high standard, really making the most of the abundance of period features. There are exposed timbers throughout and open fireplaces. The kitchen is situated on the ground floor and opens to the small but pretty outside space. On the ground floor is a sitting room and dining room with stairs leading to the first floor where you will find bedrooms one and two. A real feature of the property is the spiral staircase which leads to the bedroom on the second floor (there is restricted head height in bedroom three). This is an absolutely charming property and must be seen to be appreciated.
