A simply stunning and deceptive character cottage which has undergone a complete sympathetic programme of refurbishment and extension finished to a high standard with a great deal of thought and attention to detail. This delightful cottage now offers the pretty aesthetic appearance expected of a property of its era combined with the benefits of modern fixtures and fittings, creating a fantastic and versatile character home located on a pleasant corner plot within this highly regarded and much sought after village.

The cottage has undergone a complete 'back to brick' renovation including re-wiring, re-plumbing, plastering and neutral decor as well as re-roofing. An extension to the rear elevation blends in with the original part of the cottage creating a large living kitchen beautifully appointed with a range of cottage style units, quartz granite work surfaces, integrated appliances and utility off.

In addition to the ground floor there are two main reception rooms offering a wealth of features with exposed beams, live chimney breast with inset solid fuel stove in the lounge, a third reception with a cosy snug/home office off an inner hallway and contemporary shower room. An attractive turning staircase rises to a split level landing where there are three bedrooms, the master having walk in dressing room off which, subject to planning, has the potential for this area to be converted into an ensuite. There is also a beautifully appointed contemporary bathroom.

The property occupies a pleasant corner plot with walled frontage and large gravelled driveway providing off road car standing and lawned garden with natural stone pathway. To the rear the garden has a raised lawned area and timber deck with access through French doors off the living kitchen.

The property is offered to the market with no upward chain and viewing comes highly recommended to appreciate both the accommodation and location on offer.
