King's Ransom is a most attractive property of mainly rendered elevations under a pitched thatched roof. This delightful and quirky property offers flexible and well-proportioned accommodation arranged over two floors with one split level room. King's Ransom would benefit from some modernisation in order to bring it up to date.

The property is approached via an iron gate and steps lead to the front door. There is a pretty cottage garden and the front elevation is clad with roses giving the cottage a delightful approach.

The front door leads through to a spacious entrance hall. There is a good-sized dining room with parquet flooring and a window to the front. A door from the dining room leads to another reception room that could be utilised as a third bedroom or study.

The large kitchen/breakfast room benefits from an extensive range of attractive solid timber units with some integrated appliances. There is ample space for a table and chairs and there are two windows to the rear overlooking the garden.

There is also a cloakroom on the ground floor.

The staircase leads from the entrance hall and up to the split level sitting room. This double aspect room is light and airy and has a sliding door giving access to the courtyard rear garden.

There is an open fireplace with brick surround and bricked tiled hearth.

The staircase continues up to the first floor where there are two good-sized double bedrooms and a bathroom.

The garden wraps itself around the cottage opening out into a delightful paved courtyard garden at the rear. The single garage is accessed via up and over doors to both ends.

King's Ransom benefits from a U shaped garden which wraps itself around the cottage. To the front of the property is a pretty cottage garden bordered by a hedge and with a range of shrubs and roses climbing the front elevation. The garden leads round to the right of the property where there are further specimen shrubs and bushes.

To the rear of the property is a paved courtyard garden providing a low maintenance space with planted borders and a range of bushes and trees giving the garden a large amount of privacy. The single garage has an up and over door to each end.
