2 Butcher's Hill is a property that has been transformed over the years from a cottage to a light and spacious modern family home. Having been considerably altered and added to in the 1970s by its then owner, this light and spacious house has been further improved in more recent years and now provides a delightful contemporary home with vistas through the ground floor and to the private garden.

The vendors have during their tenure renewed the weatherboarding and added natural insulation as well as replacing the vast majority of the windows to a uniform width. They have also added impressive tri-fold doors in the "Mobalpa" fitted kitchen/dining room; created an en suite shower room to the spacious main bedroom and nurtured and maintained the charming private gardens.

The house flows from the wide light-filled hall with its impressive spiral staircase to the spacious sitting room on the left (formerly divided into two rooms) with svl structural veneer laminate flooring, a curved wall, sliding door to the garden and a raised Jetmaster fire. To the right is the kitchen/dining room fitted with a range of Mobalpa floor and wall units incorporating a Kuppersbusch combi microwave, electric fan oven and dishwasher. In addition, there is a central island with pan drawers both sides incorporating a gas hob and Teka extractor and granite worktops. The dining area has tri-fold doors with direct access to the outside dining area paved with riven slate to match the internal (honed) flooring with its underfloor heating. Beside the kitchen is an additional reception room/studio and a cloakroom.

On the first floor the landing gives access to the east facing balcony with a view to the Church and the four spacious bedrooms – the main suite with its deep windows overlooks the garden and is fitted with a range of wardrobes and the en suite wet room has marble flooring a WC, wash basin, vanity unit and storage. One of the bedrooms incorporates the airing cupboard with gas fired boiler and the family bathroom is fitted with with an oval bath, shower cubicle with a central shower fitting and twin wash basins.
