UNEXPECTEDLY RE-AVAILABLE * NO CHAIN * FOUR BEDROOMS * QUIET LOCATION. This charming semi detached cottage offers excellent accommodation with flexible room usage. We believe that the property was built about 1850 to home local farm workers employed on the nearby farm. Our seller has owned the property for about thirteen years now during which time it has been maintained and improved and benefits from a previous extension to the side transforming it into a well proportioned home - ideal for an established or growing family seeking a rural lifestyle and equally for those looking to lead a quiet retirement in the countryside. The cottage is presented to the market with the bonus of no onward chain, oil fired central heating via radiators and some double and secondary glazing. There are also solar panels fitted but not currently functioning. This delightful cottage retains character features which include pane glass windows with deep sills, fireplaces and exposed stone walls. An early viewing is strongly advisable to avoid missing out on the opportunity of owning this charming home and to really appreciate the location and feel its wonderful ambience.
