This layout maximises the ground living space and flows really nicely through a dining area and into the sitting room, which has an inset wood-burner, which makes the ground floor naturally cosy and homely. Another feature of this room, is a further entrance door and window, which maximises the levels of natural light.

Three modest sized bedrooms (2 doubles and 1 single) and a family bathroom are accessed off the 1st floor landing and all have South Westerly views out.
The home has Georgian style UPVC double glazed windows and Oil Fired central heating.

The home is positioned on a private Victorian cul-de-sac, Blacksmiths Yard, which has only a few neighbouring cottages. The rear 'secret garden' is hidden away (just past the cottages and on the right) and is off-set away from the home. One allocated parking space (BMW 1 series sized car) and the oil tank for the property, are directly in front of a wrought iron gate, which access the garden.
The 60ft x 40ft enclosed garden is so pretty and private with some good mature planting and is divided into 2 areas. There is enough space to grow your own produce and relax in total privacy.
