    About this property

    • A most attractively presented cottage having appealing elevations of whitened render under a thatched roof.

      Whilst traditional in style, the cottage was built in the 1980's and is not listed. The cottage has been completely modernised and redecorated with a contemporary twist in the last three years and is offered for sale in immaculate order.

      A half glazed front door opens into the rose clad entrance porch, arranged as a boot room with useful benches, and then into the hall with modern guest cloakroom. The sitting room has a stone fireplace with open grate, and French doors leading on the garden.

      The dining room has a door to the well fitted kitchen/breakfast room with an excellent range of units finished in sage green with butcher's block surfaces, a Belfast sink, and appliances including ceramic hob, oven and extractor hood, fridge/ freezer and dishwasher. A separate utility room has a matching range of units, plumbing for a washing machine and door to outside.

      A spiral staircase leads up to the first floor landing with linen cupboard. The generous main bedroom has a fitted wardrobe and an en suite shower room with wood panelled walls, glazed shower, basin and WC. There are two further double bedrooms, and a stylish bathroom with shower bath, tiled surround and floor, basin with storage beneath, WC, and tongue and groove panelled walls.

      The cottage is side on to the lane leading through the village. A five bar gate open into a shingle driveway with parking for a good number of cars, and to the detached double garage with loft storage area.

      The rear garden enjoys a westerly aspect and is secluded by a variety of mature trees and shrubs. It is mostly laid to lawn with a sunny paved terrace adjacent to the French doors, perfect for outdoor entertaining, and a small summerhouse at the end of the plot.

      Additionally, planning permission has been granted to convert and extend the garage into a self contained holiday let. Planning reference: P/FUL/2021/03430.
