An attractive Grade II Listed detached cottage dating back to the mid 17th century. The cottage was comprehensively remodelled and refurbished in the early 1960’s from two separate cottages re thatched in 2015 and is now in need of updating giving the new owner the opportunity of putting their own mark on to the cottage. There is a fabulous 651 sqft detached studio added in the 1970’s with its own access at the foot of the garden, perfect for conversion into another property or annexe subject to the relevant permissions, consents and your own investigations.
You enter into a reception hall with a cloaks cupboard. To your right is the cloakroom, and ahead of you the kitchen which looks out over the garden. To the left of the kitchen is the fabulous, characterful sitting and dining room with parquet flooring, an exposed brick chimney breast with copper hood over the fireplace which is open to both the sitting and dining rooms. Doors lead out onto the patio, with windows looking out to the front, and stairs lead up to the first floor.
Upstairs are four double bedrooms, three of which have high ceilings and exposed beams in the walls and ceilings and a modern family bathroom.
