A charming 3/4 bedroom detached cottage originally dating from the mid 1800’s. It is understood that the property was once in the ownership of the Duke of Wellington’s Estate. The property has been extended and improved in recent years and now provides practical yet versatile family accommodation arranged over two floors. The front door opens into a spacious hallway with doors leading to further rooms and a staircase to the first floor. The main double aspect reception room is complemented with a central inglenook fireplace and incorporates what was once the old front door, also providing access to the outside. The kitchen is fitted with a range of units under an expanse of worktops with space for appliances. For formal entertaining there is a separate dining room with double doors leading to the garden. In addition there is a separate utility room with space for further appliances and a downstairs wc. There is a third reception room on the ground floor, currently used as an office but would lend itself to an additional bedroom. The first floor is of equal merit, stairs lead into a tremendous family room which gives access to all first floor bedrooms. The main bedroom benefits from an en suite bathroom whilst the two further bedrooms are served by a family shower room.
