The Property This is a Grade 11 listed cottage which has been cleverly extended to the rear to provide additional ground floor accommodation and a hobbies room upstairs creating a house of around 155m² (1675ft²). Whilst having been maintained over the years, it is fair to say that some areas are perhaps a little dated in style but this gives the new owner a chance to make their own mark on the property.
The original part is believed to date from late 17th century and displays a wealth of timber work to both floor and ceilings together with open inglenook fireplaces in the sitting room and dining room. The first floor in this area has rooms in the roof space with the renewed oak timbers revealed. The thatched roof is reed and was renewed around 14 years ago so has plenty of life left.
The 'new' part was added around 35 years ago and provides the kitchen and a ground floor bedroom. There is room for a breakfast table and it is from here there is a drop down ladder into the hobbies room above. With a little bit of remodelling a fitted stair could be added and the hobbies room used as a further bedroom.
Outside The cottage is set back from the road in a slightly elevated position. The front garden is lawned with rose beds to the side and a thatched well in the front. The side drive has recently been relayed and leads up to the garage and a patio area. Steps lead up to the very private rear garden which is lawned, with mature trees to the rear, and thick bank of shrubs. Overall the property is set within 0.077ha (0.19ac).
Services Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. Private drainage. Oil fired boiler providing heating to radiators.
