A historic detached cottage which has been beautifully and recently refurbished into a stylish character home offering a sizeable driveway, gated parking and double garage.

The cottage has a south facing garden with attractive planted borders, glimpse views over distant countryside and a detached outbuilding with insulation and mains power which could be used as a home office/studio. We believe the cottage could date back 200 years (not listed) and has been extended to the side and rear creating a balanced living space which provides areas for entertaining and relaxing plus a garden room with a small wood burning stove for winter months. The interior of the home is immaculately interspersed with notable character and stone features, including the original fireplace with a further wood burner and traditional clome oven. There are two entrances to the cottage with a side porch hidden from view on the western elevation or from the rear through the single or double doors of the garden room .

The accommodation comprises porch, sitting room, dining room with study area, kitchen opening to a further kitchen/utility area, garden room and bathroom. To the first floor are two double bedrooms, en-suite shower room and walk-in wardrobe. The property is warmed by a mains gas central heating system, two wood burners, PVCu double glazing and further insulation measures.
