A delightful Grade II Listed timber-framed and thatched cottage sitting in a generous plot and offering an attractive combination of period features sat comfortably alongside modern conveniences. Dating back to the 1600s, the house offers charm in abundance including exposed beams and flagstone floors, to which the current owners have added their own modern style with the addition of a contemporary kitchen/breakfast room that has bi-folding doors opening to the rear garden. At the heart of the house is an imposing inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove and a traditional bread oven harking back to the days before supermarket deliveries! There are two bedrooms on the first floor with a shower room and third bedroom that could also be used as a study on the ground floor.
A generous paved terrace adjacent to the house incorporates a natural spring well (secured with a grill) and opens to level lawns broken up with vegetable beds, shrub borders and mature fruit trees. There is a second smaller lawn to the side of the house along with a timber shed, greenhouse, detached garage and a spacious block-paved parking area.
