We have pleasure in offering to the market this deceptive semi detached period cottage, occupying a stunning generous established plot which in total extends to over 230 feet in length. The cottage has been significantly altered from the original two-up two-down, benefitting from a pitched roof single storey extension to the side and two storey extension to the rear.

Internally the property approaches 1000 sq ft and has been sympathetically modernised throughout, benefitting from UPVC double glazing, gas central heating, period style stripped pine internal doors, farmhouse style kitchen and Heritage bathroom suite. In addition the property is tastefully decorated throughout and comprises a level of accommodation which is large enough for small families or would be ideal for single or professional couples looking for a well presented traditional home on a delightful plot.

Internally the accommodation comprises an entrance hall which is large enough to accommodate a study area, leading through into the main sitting room, central dining room which leads through to a large breakfast kitchen with utility area and walk-in pantry, plus useful cloakroom off. To the first floor are two bedrooms and shower room and from an inner landing a staircase rises to an occasional room in the eaves which would make excellent storage or study area.

Clearly one of the main attractions of the property is its wonderful plot, benefitting from a rear garden which extends to approximately 180 feet, as well as an additional garden to the side which subject to necessary consents, could offer scope to expand the accommodation further. To the front of the property is a large gated driveway providing ample off road car standing but there is additional vehicular access off a green lane to the rear where there is a single garage and courtesy gate leading on to the garden. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with established perimeter borders and ample space for the keen gardener to create both formal garden for entertaining but also a vegetable plot. There is a range of timber buildings with two storage sheds and recently constructed workshop.

Overall viewing comes highly recommended to appreciate not only the accommodation but location on offer.
