Property description

Description


A delightful detached period cottage, believed to date back to the 16th Century, constructed of colour washed brick and rendered elevations/part exposed framework elevations under a thatched roof. The property has been substantially extended over the years by the current owners, who have occupied it for the last twenty years. The main extensions which were carried out in 2003 comprise a bathroom, dining room, bedroom with dressing room and en suite bathroom. A further extension to the kitchen was added in 2011 to provide a large vaulted breakfast area. The property has a wealth of character with numerous exposed beams, timbers, vaulted ceilings and framework. Outside there is a double bay barn style garage with store to the rear and ample parking to the front. The gardens adjoin farmland and extend to about a quarter of an acre.

Agent’s Note: An internal viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the true character of this cottage.
