Full description


A truly deceptive and interesting individual detached conversion offering a generous level of internal accommodation, the majority of which lies to the ground floor with a more modern two storey addition to the rear which has created a superb first floor master suite benefitting from a dual aspect and ensuite facilities.

To the ground floor there are three main receptions including a well proportioned sitting room with access out into the rear garden. There are three further bedrooms but due to the versatile layout these could be utilised as additional receptions depending on an individual's lifestyle.

The property also benefits from a well proportioned kitchen which has been sympathetically modernised with a generous range of Shaker style units and integrated appliances, benefitting from windows to three elevations and French doors leading out into a central courtyard. There is also a ground floor bathroom allowing this property to be utilised as a single storey dwelling, making it ideal for a range of prospective purchasers including professional couples, young families but also those downsizing from considerably larger dwellings looking for a mainly single storey but spacious home within this highly regarded and well placed village.

The property offers a wealth of character features with an attractive typical barn style facade of reclaimed brick elevations beneath a mainly pantiled roof and internally many of the rooms offer exposed beams with fireplaces to both the main sitting room and lounge.

Richmond Cottage occupies a deceptive plot with gated access leading onto a substantial driveway and garage with the main garden lying to the rear and offering a good degree of privacy with initial paved terrace leading out onto an L shaped mainly lawned garden, well stocked with established trees and shrubs and enclosed to all sides, making it ideal for those with young children or dogs.

Overall viewing is the only way to truly appreciate both the property's location but also its internal accommodation.
