A charming, immaculately presented, Grade II Listed cottage, enjoying a picturesque setting within communal grounds. The property is located a short distance from the station and has off road parking and a brick-built out building.
Forming part of a unique terrace of cottages, the property was carefully and sensitively renovated about 16 years ago. The cottages are all maintained to a very high standard by a management company, which is responsible for the whole terrace and ensures that the gardens and all the cottages will remain well maintained in the future.
The cottage is both cosy and beautifully maintained throughout and has numerous character features including exposed timbers, pretty windows and an impressive inglenook fireplace. The property is set behind lovely communal gardens which are laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs. There is a traditional front door opening to a well-equipped, fully integrated kitchen, fitted with a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and freezer; there is also space for a large range cooker. The adjacent sitting / dining room is dominated by a stunning, brick inglenook fireplace and is dual aspect, with a door to the staircase.
On the first floor there is a generous bedroom featuring a painted brick chimney breast. There is also a dressing room and a spacious en-suite bathroom fitted with a bath, w.c and hand-basin.
The property has one parking space and a brick-built outbuilding suitable for bike storage.
The property is leasehold with 983 years left on the lease. Management fees are currently set at £168 per calendar month and this covers garden maintenance, general repairs, buildings and contents insurance and electricity for communal areas. The money also contributes to a fund to cover major works such as thatch repairs.
