Full description


Built in 1881, No.44 retains many of the character features including the granite and brick archways on the front of the house replicating the archways on the National Trust alms houses which are opposite. On the ground floor the accommodation comprises a living room with a stone fireplace and space for a dining table and a kitchen with a back door leading out to the pathway to the garden. Upstairs there is a bedroom and bathroom with space on the landing for a study and a further staircase leads up to the bedroom in the attic. This property is gas centrally heated for comfort but could be considered a project for cosmetic improvement. The garden area is about 30 metres away and has a raised deck and a shed and there are two further brick and stone sheds for wood and garden storage. Fowlers strongly recommend viewing to appreciate the potential of this sturdy character home.
