Lynde Cross Cottage is understood to have origins in the 14th century and is Grade II Listed. Within just a short walk of both John Lewis, Sainsburys and, of course, the town centre, the property has been enlarged over various periods and comprises a sitting room and dining room, a particularly spacious kitchen/breakfast room and a rear lobby where there is a laundry area and a bathroom. There are two staircases, one is very old indeed and twists upwards where there are the two principal bedrooms, both with their vaulted ceilings and the main bedroom with evidence of ancient wall paintings. There is also a further bedroom and a shower room. What is surprising about this old house is how bright and airy it seems and this will surprise viewers. Outside there is an absolutely stunning cottage garden which enjoys a surprisingly good degree of privacy and faces in a south-westerly orientation. The owner is renting a parking space a few minutes walk away with in the Catholic Church car park. We understand that this can be transferred and is currently £11 per week. Viewings are very highly recommended.
