  • Bedrooms: 3
According to the Grade II Listed status, the cottage was probably believed to have been four cottages and is now two cottages. Constructed of squared coarsed ironstone beneath a steeply thatched roof with oil fired heating to radiators, the cottage is in need of some updating and modernisation with a fabulous opportunity to add further value. The modernisation is likely to include heating, wiring, plumbing, re-thatching, re-fitting of kitchen, bathroom and re-decoration.

The property is entered through a carport (providing a pedestrian access to the neighbouring cottage) which although suitable to store a small vehicle, is currently used as a courtyard entrance. This provides access to the front entrance and a single storey outbuilding with potential for conversion to an office/workshop. From the courtyard there is a main front entrance to the hall and a kitchen entrance. The L-shaped sitting room features a fireplace with a coal effect gas fired (served by a propane gas cylinder), with beamed ceiling, a parquet floor and gives access to a small conservatory overlooking the garden. The kitchen features an oil fired Rayburn with a back boiler that serves the heating and hot water via radiators. On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a bathroom with a staircase giving access to an attic room (with no windows).

Outside

Principally laid to part paving and part lawn, the gardens are complemented by well stocked flowering borders. There is a stone storage shed.
