This delightful period cottage has colour-washed, rendered elevations under a thatched roof (replaced about 15 years ago) and offers immense charm and character, with a wealth of exposed beamsand timbers. Presented in excellent decorative order, the property has been refurbished and well maintained, and benefits from gas central heating.
The accommodation comprises a thatched gabled entrance porch, entrance lobby (with coat cupboard,) living room (with open fireplace, gas fire and brick faced feature wall,) rear garden room (with French doors to outside,) kitchen/dining room (re-fitted in 2013 with an excellent range of cupboards and drawers, with door to outside,) bathroom and 2 first floor bedrooms, both of which have fitted furniture. To the side of the house, gates give access to a driveway leading to an oak-framed, Heritage style, open-fronted garage (with a secure garden store to the rear.)
The well stocked, cottage style walled garden affords a large degree of privacy. It was professionally landscaped (about 7 years ago) and has paved and gravelled footpaths, a wildlife pond, raised beds, a herb garden and a lytchgate which forms a central feature.
