SUMMARY
A substantial four bedroom character cottage, occupying a private position, semi rural with a large tree lined acre garden and a further paddock. An ideal family home, and perfect for a developer wishing to re build a large 3/4000 sized dwelling subject to planning.


DESCRIPTION
A detached double fronted former Crofta's cottage, reputed to be 200 years old, occupying a fine location within a large tree lined plot, approximately one acre in size and approached by a long private entrance drive. This four bedroom character property also includes a detached double garage with a part converted studio above, and wide private drive with ample parking for 8/9 cars, a large car port and a separate self contained summer house/granny annex comprising a kitchen & breakfast room, a bedroom, a living room and a bathroom. Within the two acre plot is a large fenced paddock, ideal for those equestrian buyers, and the entire garden is tree lined to afford both privacy and security. We understand from the vendors that in recent years an architect advised of potential to build another detached dwelling within the grounds, alternatively a single replacement dwelling would certainly be considered by the local planning office to allow for the construction of a particularly large detached residence with potential space for 3000/4000 square feet. These opportunities would require formal planning permission, but a bat survey has already been completed in 2012. The current cottage offers sizeable accommodation with the benefits of mains services including mains water, mains drainage, and mains electricity. Central heating is oil fired with a modern Worcester boiler and a new oil tank installed in 2005.

The Property 
The property also includes PVC double glazed replacement windows, an intruder alarm, wood block floors and C C T V camera security. The accommodation comprises an entrance porch, an entrance hall with a returning staircase, a charming lounge, 15'10 x 14'5, equipped with an open stone fire place and a cast iron gas burner plus a traditional beamed ceiling. Off the entrance hall is a separate sitting room, a fitted kitchen (18'0 x 5'0 ft) open plan to a formal dining room (19'1 x 12'4), a large walk in pantry, a large utility room and a study (16'4 x 5'0). The first floor comprises four bedrooms, a cloak room with wc and wash hand basin, whilst off the ground floor there is a modern stylish family bathroom.
