We have pleasure in offering to the market this unique opportunity to acquire a detached period Grade II Listed character cottage which offers huge potential, currently requiring a general programme of modernisation which when will complete will create a stunning individual home which offers a wealth of features with heavily beamed ceilings, open fireplaces, several original sliding sash windows to the front and internal cottage latch doors. The accommodation in total approaches 1100 sq ft.

Currently extending to 2/3 receptions with initial kitchen area linking through into a dining room and in turn the sitting room, off which leads a useful study/snug. In addition to the ground floor there is an enclosed rear porch and bathroom. To the first floor there are three bedrooms, the third of which is accessed via the central bedroom but, subject to necessary consents, offers scope for the creation of a corridor to create three separate rooms, or alternatively conversion of one of them to a first floor bathroom.

The property occupies a pleasant plot with a reasonable size rear garden by modern standards which benefits from a southerly aspect and includes a range of brick and pantiled outbuildings currently providing useful storage.
