The Property

This charming detached cottage is Grade II Listed and dates from the early 19th Century, albeit with earlier origins. Since purchasing in 2012, the current owners have refurbished and much improved the cottage with excellent attention to detail. The roof was replaced in 2014 with extra insulation and there are numerous period features throughout. The cottage is tucked away in a traffic-free location, convenient for the town centre and all amenities.

The Accommodation

The front door leads into the sitting room which has a period surround with a gas coal effect fire, with built-in cupboards and shelves either side. There are ceiling beams and a wide opening into the dining area which has a large roof light over, providing plentiful natural light. On the left a door leads to a dressing room with built-in wardrobes, while on the right a door leads to the tiled wet room, with two roof lights and a cupboard housing the boiler, which also has plumbing for a washing machine. Leading off is a useful storage room, in turn leading to a small yard. Off the sitting room is the well fitted kitchen with a Belling electric cooker and gas hob. There is a large sink unit, an integrated slimline dishwasher and useful under-stair storage with space for an upright fridge/freezer. On the first floor, the main bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with beams and a bespoke vanity basin. The dual aspect second bedroom can also accommodate a double bed.

Outside

At the front is a courtyard area with climbing roses and space for a table and chairs.
