Property Details

DESCRIPTION

An attractive Grade II Listed period attached cottage constructed of brick/timber frame and rendered elevations beneath a thatched roof. (We understand the original cottage was rethatched in 2016 and the rear extension in 2013).  The property has a wealth of character with numerous exposed beams and timbers.  The accommodation comprises a spacious farmhouse size kitchen/breakfast room, large central hallway, a sitting room with fireplace, dining room with original front entrance and cloakroom.  To the first floor there is a central landing with doors leading to the family bathroom and three generous double bedrooms with views towards the church and surrounding farmland.  Outside there is a single garage within a double garage block and there is a good size garden extending to the rear and side of the property.

Agent’s Notes:

The future purchaser has the option of buying out the vendor’s restrictive covenant if the purchaser wishes to develop/apply for planning/change the use of the existing cottage and garden.

The property is offered with no onward chain. We understand that the cottage has never been marketed in living memory.
