Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
A hugely attractive, period, semi-detached cottage pleasantly positioned on a quiet road close to the village centre with on-street parking and an attractive garden.

Bursting with character, this fine village home offers surprisingly large accommodation (approx.1567 sq.ft.), which is extremely light and airy. The real eye-opener is the sheer volume of living space with two separate reception rooms, both with attractive, small inglenook fireplaces (sitting room with log burner), a lovely oak framed garden room, a generous study/studio with vaulted, beamed ceiling, second bathroom (also with vaulted ceiling) and a cloakroom.

At the heart of this cottage is a truly splendid Shaker-style farmhouse kitchen with a vaulted oak beamed ceiling and a five oven Aga. The first floor offers two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a family bathroom, off a light and spacious landing, all with vaulted, oak beamed ceilings and exposed timbered walls. Throughout the cottage is a wealth of period features including two first floor fireplaces, exposed oak timbers and beams, partly exposed internal walls and generous storage. The garden room has a flagstone floor and all other ground floor rooms have been laid with Travertine. The main bedroom and first-floor bathroom have stripped and polished floors; the remainder of the upstairs is carpeted which is being replaced.

To the front of the cottage is on street parking. The south facing, sunny rear garden offers a high degree of privacy and is fully enclosed with a rear pedestrian access.
