Arranged on two floors with three reception rooms, this well presented cottage has an interesting history believed to date back to pre 1800 and built as the groom’s cottage for the neighbouring coaching inn and named after a previous resident and actress called Mary O’Hara. It has been sympathetically modernised and extended while retaining many period features offering a wealth of charm and character. The entrance hall has under stairs storage and leads to the dining room and sitting room both with exposed beams and feature fireplaces. Beyond the dining room is a well designed kitchen which has a range of wooden units and benefits from attractive granite work surfaces with integrated dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, oven, hob and extractor. A particular highlight of the property is the addition of a spacious and light family room with doors opening to the patio and providing lovely vistas down the garden making it a lovely place to sit during the day and doubling as a study. There is a modern shower-room fully tiled with a double width cubicle and stairs lead to the first floor via an attractive arched window overlooking the garden. The two double bedrooms are decorated in neutral shades with complementing carpets and one has a fireplace and both have plentiful fitted wardrobes. They share a modern and bright bathroom.
