A beautifully presented detached period cottage which is Grade II Listed and has origins dating back to the 18th Century. The property is constructed of a superb heavy timber frame with plaster rendering and has been extended to provide wonderful additional accommodation that molds splendidly alongside the original dwelling. The charming cottage boasts delightful rooms that offer a wealth of character to include an abundance of exposed beams and stud work, including a stunning vaulted sitting room, and the brick inglenook fireplace just adds to this charm. This character has not been over looked in the modern extension and the accommodation offered is more contemporary with features such as bakelite switches, cast iron radiators and oak flooring and doors. The property has recently undergone further work to include the sole plate being replaced where needed and in 2015 the thatch was re-ridged, dressed and rewired. The house is offered to a high standard throughout and we highly recommend an internal inspection.

The programmable oil fired Rayburn provides central heating and hot water and is aesthetically very appealing and fits in wonderfully with the character of the room.
