The Property

Built in the mid 1800's, this detached cottage has been extended and much improved by the current owner since purchasing in 2015. He has added a room at the rear, offering the flexibility or a second reception room, or a ground floor bedroom if required, and added a luxury shower room adjacent. Other works included damp proofing, timber treatments, new windows and external doors. In addition they removed the first floor ceilings to expose the roof timbers and add to the feeling of space. The period style bathroom is a particular feature and an insulated cabin has been added to the garden, which could provide a useful home office.
