About this property

  • West Quay Cottage is well positioned in the heart of the village set back from Quay Street and is constructed from mellow red brick under pitched pan tiled roofs. Internally, the house has great character with well proportioned rooms including a large kitchen/breakfast room and to the other side of the hall is a spacious sitting room with an open fireplace and French windows into the gardens. The house is well presented throughout and the accommodation flows remarkably well. On the first floor are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the master bedroom benefitting from a spacious refurbished en suite shower room. There are a further 2 bedrooms on the second floor with far reaching views over the marshes to the south.

    The garden is a particular feature of the house with a paved terrace bordering the house and a lawn beyond surrounded by a mature border well stocked with a variety of fine flowering shrubs. The garden is sheltered, private and west facing allowing the terrace by the house to be perfectly
    positioned for sunshine.

    The house further benefits from off road parking and a single garage through which there is access to the garden. The garage and parking are set to the rear of the house, off Quay Street allowing for easy private parking.
