DESCRIPTION

This very pretty character cottage dates from the 1700s, one of originally a pair before being joined to the neighbouring properties some time later. It offers good sized rooms with plenty of period features throughout! The sitting room has a wonderful inglenook fireplace and the dining room is really cosy without being cramped. The kitchen is beautifully fitted with bespoke white wood units with ironwork handles and light oak effect worktops. This looks out onto the relaxing garden, which has off road parking through double gates to the rear and a garage/workshop. The first floor has two bedrooms and a bathroom and there is a further large bedroom on the second floor which would lend itself to an ideal office or play-room, if required. Within easy walking distance of the shops and pubs, the excellent health centre and the mainline station, this is a super home for young or old alike, in the heart of the village. NO FORWARD CHAIN!
