    About this property

    • October & Goose Cottages offer an opportunity to purchase a charming pair of cottages, built in stone and brick with white painted elevations under a thatched and tiled roof, believed to date from around 1750. The current owners, who have been resident for around 30 years, have lovingly maintained the properties including adding a conservatory to October Cottage, fitting new kitchens, and some double glazing. The properties may be ideal for those looking to have a home and a property to provide an income, or have a relative living next door.

      The current owners live in October Cottage and rent out Goose Cottage. October Cottage has a sitting room with large fireplace and bespoke fitted oak cupboards, leading through to a dining room. Beyond the dining room is the study which is also used as an occasional bedroom. Also on the ground floor is the well fitted kitchen with window to the front overlooking the village green, and a ground floor bathroom. On the south side of the cottage is the conservatory, with bi fold doors and a lovely outlook over the garden. Upstairs the principal bedroom has fitted furniture and an en suite shower room. The second bedroom also has fitted furniture and leads through to an attic room which is currently used as a sewing room, and has previously been used as a study and a children's bedroom or nursery (restricted head height).

      Goose Cottage has an enclosed porch leading to a small hallway, and then on to the sitting/dining room with large fireplace and staircase to the first floor. Also on the ground floor is a fitted kitchen with window to the front, and a ground floor shower room. On the first floor a large landing with fitted cupboards leads to the bedroom.

      The properties sit off the no-through village lane opposite the green and pond. To the side of October Cottage is the detached garage with workshop area with power and light, plus additional gravelled parking . There is a home office/studio in the garden, with power and light, and double glazed windows.

      The gardens are a lovely feature being mainly laid to lawn, south west facing and level. There are mature and attractive beds and borders, and a patio area.

      Goose Cottage has a gravelled parking area to the side and a small courtyard style garden to the rear. There is room at the front of the cottage for a garden table and chairs.
