DESCRIPTION 'Poppy Cottage' was formally a house and separate bungalow now combined to form this exceptionally spacious property having huge potential for a variety of uses. The main house offers spacious accommodation on its own with the addition of a spacious loft which is partly boarded out that would make a great loft conversion should you require further accommodation. The bungalow could be returned to a separate unit for potential use as a holiday cottage producing additional income, a separate annexe for an elderly relative or even for a young adult family member as an interim step to leaving home. The property occupies a large plot with extensive gardens, off street parking as well as an extended garage and work shop. Poppy cottage enjoys stunning views for miles around across rolling countryside. Early viewing is recommended to fully appreciate all that it has to offer.
