About this property

  • Cross Farm Cottage is a charming detached property believed to have originally been a farm building and converted in the 1960s.

    The position is a major feature, being tucked away at the end of a long private driveway approach, shared with Upper Pryors and enjoying a lovely outlook with a southerly aspect.

    The accommodation is light and well presented, comprising two interlinking reception rooms, a fitted kitchen, a study/bedroom three and a cloakroom on the ground floor, and two good sized bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.

    It is thought there might be potential to enhance the accommodation, subject to the required consents, but no investigations have been made.

    The established garden stretches mostly to the rear, is enclosed by fence and hedging and fronts onto a small field, which is included in the sale, making about 0.76 acres in all.

    Cross Farm Cottage has its own area of driveway for parking and turning, a detached garage and an outbuilding used as a utility room.

This is a delightful property with its long shared driveway, yet the village and the station are so accessible and the outlook is lovely.
