The Property

This early to mid 19th Century home is Grade II Listed and has been substantially extended at the side and rear. It has been the home of a well respected carpenter, who made countless staircases, doors and sash windows for cottages all around the town. There is much evidence of local craftsmanship throughout the cottage including hand-made windows, stairs and panelling. The cottage provides spacious family sized accommodation, in a sought after location, a short level walk from amenities in the Triangle and more comprehensive facilities in the town centre.

At the side is a panelled dining room with a bow window and plate display shelving, plus a serving hatch to the kitchen next door. This has a range of units, built-in seating in the breakfast area, exposed brickwork and a shelved larder cupboard.
