Property Description

Full description


A most attractive detached Grade II listed period cottage, believed to have been originally been farm workers’ cottages, constructed of mainly white washed brick/flint elevations under a thatched roof (understood to have been totally re-thatched in 2006).  At one end of the cottage there is a lean-to timber/slate addition (added approximately ten years ago).  The cottage has a wealth of character with exposed beams and timbers and a splendid deep inglenook fireplace in the large double aspect sitting/family room.  There is an open entrance to one end of the sitting room leading into an office/studio.  To the opposite end a half glazed door leads into the dining room with numerous exposed ceiling beams and timbers, from where a staircase rises to the first floor.  There is also a door to a cloakroom.  There is also a beautifully fitted ‘Sheraton’ oak kitchen with granite work surfaces and modern appliances.  To the first floor there is an exceptionally long landing with doors leading to four double bedrooms and the family bathroom with white suite.   The property benefits from oil fired central heating (we understand the oil tank has been replaced).
