A delightful and broad facing, three bedroom, two reception room, end of terrace traditional period cottage of huge charm, with the benefit of an enclosed southerly facing rear garden, and private off road parking.
The character cottage is believed to be approximately two hundred and fifty years old, and offers painted external stone elevations, under a pitched tiled roof, pretty cottage style windows and warmed by an oil fired Rayburn providing the central heating, hot water and cooking facilities. The home is further warmed during the winter months by a traditional inglenook open fireplace situated within the living room.
Upon entering the reception hallway, an opening leads into the cottage style kitchen which in turn opens into the delightful spacious character living room and the neighbouring sitting room. An original pine staircase ascends from the entrance hallway to the first floor landing where period doors lead off to three bedrooms and a bathroom.
In a bygone era and many moons ago, the sitting room was once the local village shop which catered for every day needs, and the room above ( now bedroom 1 ) was a hay loft.
The cottage offers an enchanting southerly facing rear lawn garden, stocked with a plethora of specimen plants including climbing rose, apple, willow tree, various evergreen shrubs and established herbs. The cottage garden provides a haven for visiting wild birds throughout the seasons. The front aspect offers private off road parking.
