About this property

  • Letter Box Cottage is a stone, end of terrace property with slate roof situated on the edge of the village overlooking farmland. It is in need of renovation and modernisation which would make an exciting project to suit a variety of buyers looking to move to the area. It could provide the perfect bolt hole for a country rural retreat, family home or be the perfect investment property.

    The cottage comprises a hall leading through to the kitchen and dining room. The kitchen has built in storage units and space for oven and further appliances. There is a pantry cupboard, under stairs storage area and door leading through to the bathroom and dining room. The dining room has a fireplace, which is used to heat water to circulate to the radiators. There is also a separate immersion heater. The dining room is dual aspect, allowing plenty of light into the property. Adjacent to this is the sitting room with wooden floor boards, stone mullion windows with views overlooking the fields. There is also a cellar.

    The first floor currently provides three spacious bedrooms with good ceiling height which could be re modelled to suit individual needs, subject to planning consent. Views from two of the bedrooms look over open countryside.

    There could be the potential to add a second storey over the kitchen extension, subject to planning, providing the scope to increase the square footage on the second floor.

    There is a pretty south facing cottage garden with patio seating area, mainly laid to lawn with shrub boarders enclosed by a stone wall and mature hedging. There are a number of useful storage sheds and a greenhouse.

I love the location of this house, nestled in the village, not far from amenities with rural views.
