Charming Grade II listed character cottage in this sought after village.
St James Cottage is a charming Grade II listed detached cottage offering unusually spacious accommodation and a wealth of character features including attractive fireplaces, exposed beams, and several window seats. There is oil fired central heating and a Rayburn in the kitchen. The ground floor has a good size hall, a large double drawing room with twin inglenook fireplaces, one with log burner, dining room with French doors to a terrace at the side, kitchen, and an inner hall/ boot room with cloakroom and utility room off. On the first floor, the generous main bedroom has an en suite bathroom, there are two further bedrooms, one with a dressing room or occasional fourth bedroom off, and a family bathroom It is fair to say that the cottage is now in need of modernisation and refurbishment, yet offers a huge opportunity for a buyer to improve and personalise to their own taste and specification.
The gardens extend to about one acre in total and are terraced on several levels up the hillside behind the cottage. The front garden is open plan and laid to lawn with flower beds. A paved drive on the left leads to the Garage and parking area. On the right side is a path leading to the entrance porch, with a paved terrace leading from the dining room beyond. Steps lead up to several terraced lawns and a garden area beneath the tower of St James church, with a paved area above the garage. Beyond is a further higher garden with fish pond and rockery, another sitting area and a backdrop of mature trees. A gateway and steep pathway to one side lead around the church grounds and up to an area of mature woodland, which is also on a steep slope.
We are informed that the central heating, hot water and Rayburn are not currently in working order.
