The Property Gunners Cottage is a striking example of character features and modern additions contrasting beautifully. The original building dates back to the 1600's, although updated and exceptionally maintained over the years, it still carries the rustic characteristics of its time. The main sitting and dining rooms are heavily beamed with inglenook fireplaces, although now feature double glazed windows and a oil fired burner for modern comfort. The most unexpected improvement is the conservatory/garden room. At over 19' x 16' this area is glazed to 3 aspects, has a high ceiling with fan and natural light simply floods the space. There are double doors to the landscaped patio to the front and internal access to the electric double garage to the rear.

The fitted kitchen stretches to over 27' and incorporates a bay window dining area with views over neighbouring fields. The kitchen itself is heavily stocked with cupboards and finished with solid oak worktops which is in keeping with a traditional country style. Also integrated are all modern essentials, such as a range of appliances, water softener, spot lighting and 'InSinkerator' hot water tap. Furthermore, on the ground floor is a bathroom and bedroom suite, easily adaptable for independent living. The bay fronted bedroom has been recently upgraded to include under floor heating with original pamment tiles replaced.

The first floor provides a further two double bedrooms, one with a shower room ensuite. There is also another shower room accessed by charming stable door off the landing.


Outside The rear 5 bar gate access takes you along a sweeping driveway through manicured lawn and fruit trees.
