Property description

A charming semi attached character cottage with three good sized bedrooms, ideally located within a short walk to the town centre, the nature reserve and some lovely river and countryside walks. The cottage dates to the early 1800s and is thought to have formed three cottages that were linked to the Blacksmiths of the time. The cottage has been the very much cherished and enjoyed home to our seller, who bought the property about five and half years ago in a semi derelict state and set about transforming it into a beautiful and stylish family home where traditional old world charm merge with contemporary expectations. The property has benefited from new windows and doors, the electrics have been updated as well as the plumbing, new kitchen units and bathroom suite have been fitted plus repairs undertaken to the roof and walls. This delightful home will certainly meet many potential buyers' needs with its bright interior and flexible room usage making a great family home, downsize in retirement and equally a fabulous bolt hole from a hectic working week. Viewing is vital to truly appreciate what is on offer and its location, which is close to the town centre where there is a selection of independent shops and chain stores, schooling for all ages, doctor and dentist surgeries and a variety of entertainment venues.
