Property Description

The property occupies a peaceful, tucked-away position with vehicular access via a no-through lane plus separate pedestrian access to the side of No. 36. The property is within a short striking distance of the village amenities, which include a post office, deli / coffee shop, primary school and public houses. The current owner has transformed the property with a programme of sympathetic refurbishment, most notably refitting the kitchen, two bathrooms, rewiring, replumbing and greatly improving the insulation throughout, yet taking great care to preserve all the character and charm associated with the original integrity of the building.

The accommodation comprises and entrance lobby to an L-shaped kitchen / breakfast room refitted with attractive solid oak cabinetry, quartz work surfaces with splashbacks and breakfast bar, electric cooker with extractor hood over. Just off the utility area where there is space for the usual white goods, is a walk-in cupboard that houses the oil-fired central heating boiler. There are two generous reception rooms, both with exposed timber beams and inglenook fireplaces. Off the rear lobby, is an office / bedroom 3 with a Jack and Jill bathroom, ideal for those with mobility issues.

Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms both with adjacent shower rooms and accessed via separate staircases at opposite ends of the cottage.

Outside, there is vehicular access via a no-through road / track, which leads to double gates with off-road parking for several vehicles beyond plus a double garage with an electric up-and-over door, power and light connected. The rear garden enjoys excellent levels of privacy and seclusion and is laid mainly to lawn with well-stocked flower and shrub borders and beds with a selection of trees and bushes, a generous paved patio and all enclosed by fencing, which overlook allotments to the rear.
