A handsome, Victorian home, providing spacious accommodation, with appealing character features, a south west facing garden and off road parking for two vehicles
The cottage has striking, sash windows to the front and is located at the village centre, opposite the Baptist church and primary school.
There is a porch to the front of the property opening to the dining / family room, which has a fireplace recess and a pretty original sash window to the front. The ceiling features beautifully exposed original timber beams. The adjacent sitting room is a lovely bright, dual aspect room with two windows to the front and patio doors leading out to the garden. Both the dining room and sitting room have recently been fitted with engineered oak flooring. The kitchen flows from the dining room and is to the rear of the property. It is fitted with floor and wall mounted cabinets, there is a walk in pantry, space for a fridge freezer and large range cooker and space and plumbing for a slimline dishwasher and washing machine. The Kitchen has brushed limestone flooring with underfloor heating; a door leads out to a small lobby with a back door opening to the rear garden and a w.c off.
On the first floor there is a large landing, currently used as a dressing area, but which would equally make a great study. There are three very good bedrooms, two generous doubles (one featuring exposed ceiling beams and original Victorian fireplace) and a single with a built in cupboard, there is also a spacious bathroom fitted with a bath, w.c and handbasin. The property also benefits from a large fully boarded loft space with lighting and power.
The property is set behind a hard landscaped front garden, which provides parking for two vehicles. To the rear there is a sunny, south west facing garden, which is laid to lawn with a patio adjacent to the house and a large brick built store.
