Description

The property comprises of a mid-terraced 2 bedroom cottage believed to possibly date back to the mid 1800s (in parts) and having had latter extensions to the rear further increasing the property's overall square footage.  Over the years the property has been well maintained and benefits from the installation of replacement upvc double glazed windows and doors, whilst being heated by a gas fired central heating combination boiler via radiators.  Internally the property has a pleasing layout and is in excellent decorative order, further benefiting from having just recently had new flooring installed to the majority of the rooms.  In previous years the property has been extended to the rear/westerly aspect creating a most pleasant garden room running adjacent to the family bathroom, whilst at first floor level there are the benefit of two good size bedrooms.

Externally


The property benefits from having off-road parking upon a shingle driveway flanked by established hedging and leading up to the property itself, being well set back from the road.  The main gardens lie to the rear, enjoying a predominantly south westerly aspect and taking in all of the afternoon sun.  Over the years the gardens have been thoughtfully landscaped with ease of maintenance in mind now being paved with borders interspersed with herbaceous plants and shrubs giving a good deal of colour and charm during the summer months.  A very useful outbuilding abuts the rear boundaries, (measuring 2.42m x 2.80m) and lends itself for a number of different uses.There is a right of way walkway at bottom of garden.
