Grade II Listed cottage requiring modernisation.

Tucked away in a secluded spot just off the village green, Sunnyside, formerly the bakery and public house presents a wonderful opportunity to acquire and renovate a beautiful three bedroom Grade II Listed cottage set within a sizeable garden of 0.2 acres with driveway for several cars and the remains of a garage. The property is bursting with character. There is a fire place, Mullioned windows to the front and the original spice cupboard inset into the sitting room wall. It is believed that the spices were very sought after and so had to be kept under lock and key. There is also great potential to extend subject to the required consents and planning permissions. There are also two sizeable rooms in the eaves that are boarded.
