Full description

Dolphin Cottage is a well proportioned three bedroomed period cottage with an attractive garden and off road parking for 2+ cars, all within walking distance of the High Street.

The Property - Dolphin Cottage was for many years a popular grocery and sweet shop, remembered by the older residents as Baydon Stores, indeed it still has the original pull out striped awning! Inside is a wealth of character with influences showing the full range of its history. The front door opens into a large entrance hall with box bay window to the front and staircase rising to the first floor landing. We will turn left and walk into the good sized dining room with brick fireplace and built in storage cupboard. Next into the inner hall with door left to a bathroom with shower with separate downstairs cloakroom and large airing cupboard. Back through the inner hall into the kitchen which has an inset sink with mixer tap, plumbing for both washing machine and dishwasher, space for a gas cooker, a good range of fitted cupboards and a window and door into the garden. Open plan into the breakfast room, door left into the garden room, which more closely resembles a greenhouse which is not weathertight but could easily be made so and finally right into the drawing room. This is a great sized room with open fireplace, window to the front, door to a large storage cupboard which also has a trap door down into the cellar which is located under the entrance hall, and finally a door opening back to where we started.

Upstairs - Up the staircase onto the landing, first right into the second bedroom, which is a generous double bedroom with a door opening onto an ancient staircase rising up to the heavily beamed loft. Back onto the landing and right into the third bedroom which is a single, with a window to the front. Back onto the landing and through a door into a lobby with door into the first floor cloakroom and door right into the main bedroom. This is a handsome sized room with very deep wardrobe and door left into the ensuite bathroom with bath, wash basin and storage cupboards. OK that is inside, back to the kitchen and out into the gardens.

Outside And Parking - Stepping out from the kitchen we walk onto a good sized paved patio area, step up to the gravelled parking area for up to 3 cars with double gates opening onto Blowhorn Street. To the left is a lawned area with deep well stocked flower and shrub beds and numerous mature trees. A particular note should be made that the vendor has existing planning permission to build a small Coach House style property in the remaining garden of Dolphin Cottage.
