FULL DESCRIPTION This 3-bedroom Grade II listed cottage is full of character and rustic charm, and believed to date back to the late 1700s. It occupies a pleasant location being the last property on the right just before you climb the hill up to Lower Holme and enjoys some fabulous views. The current owners converted the adjoining barn at the rear which now provides additional living space. There are many original and period style features to be found including exposed roof timbers and beams, 'Z' braced internal doors with cast iron door furniture, and stone mullioned windows to the front. The cottage has gas fired central heating, and double-glazed wood framed windows. The accommodation comprises a kitchen with access to a cold store/utility room, sitting room, spacious split-level lounge within the barn conversion with access to a w.c. and a mezzanine level, 3 bedrooms, and house bathroom. Externally, you will find a driveway leading to a detached single garage, and extensive gardens which are very well stocked with plants, shrubs and trees, a well-built summer house, shed, greenhouse, fruit garden, and courtyard sitting area with access to a log store and lean-to store/bike shed. There is excellent access to Two Gates Junior & Infant School just across the road, and a short drive or walk down into the village with its array of shops, bars, cafes, restaurants, and of course the railway station.
