Set in a tucked away location, the property offers a c.third of an acre plot as well as views over arable farmland towards May Hill.

You enter the property through a wooden thumb latch front door to a small porch leading through to a 16'6 x 12 (min) living room which offers exposed wooden ceiling beams, lead lined windows and a large Inglenook fireplace with a former bread oven, brick hearth, meat hooks and a Villager multi fuel burner.

To the rear of the property is the extension that was built in the 1990's, here there is a 22'3 x 15'9 kitchen/dining room which offers excellent space for cooking, eating and entertaining plus there are double doors leading out to the gardens.

There is an initial dressing area that has wardrobes across one wall leading on to the 16'4 x 16'2 (max) master bedroom which has the chimney breast for the inglenook fireplace in the living room below and an en-suite bathroom.

The second, offers a 15'1 (max and to cupboards) x 13'1 guest bedroom which was designed to offer the ability to divide into two rooms should a prospective purchaser need an additional bedroom.

The gardens are mature and mostly lawn complimented by a mix of hedgerow, honeysuckle, passion flowers, grapevines, shrubs, a yew tree, borders with rose beds and summer flowers plus mature fruit trees, including apples and plums. There is a seating area in the front portion of the garden, near to the house and a further seating area at the end of the garden where there is a secluded pond. There are also two wooden sheds. From the rear of the extension to the bottom of the garden is around 150' or around 200' from the rear of the original cottage with the rear garden enjoying the views over the arable farmland, towards May Hill.

At the front of the property, there is a graveled area offering multiple vehicle parking that is accessed via a 5-bar wooden gate leading from Aston Farm courtyard plus there is a detached garage (pre-cast concrete construction) with power and light.
