Full description

Delightful detached stone cottage believed to be about 220 years old and situated in the heart of the peaceful and desirable village of Kington Magna and just a few miles away from the town of Gillingham which offers a good range of shopping facilities. This lovely home also benefits from double glazing and a combination of oil and electric heating, however, total oil central heating should be easy to install as there is already the oil tank to the rear of the cottage. Inside the property offers well proportioned rooms with plenty of natural light and character features which include ceiling beams, deep window sills and fireplaces. A viewing is truly recommended to fully appreciate the layout and size of the rooms and is perfect for those looking for a country lifestyle for their family or equally for those retirees who like to garden. Sold with no onward selling chain.
