Haygarth Ross are renowned local builders responsible for creating some of the most attractive and exciting country properties in the area. The property, which is one of just three large cottages in this inspired terrace, provides stunning light and airy accommodation that extends to over 1,500 sq ft with good ceiling heights (2.4m ground floor, 2.5m first floor) and features a beautiful brick and flint façade beneath an undulating clay tiled roof with eye brow windows and exposed oak rafter feet effectively imitating other period properties that were once thatched. There is limestone flooring with under floor heating throughout the ground floor and radiators to the first floor. The cottage also has a rear two storey projection featuring full height oak frame glazing to the ground floor within the heart of the open plan living space – ideal as a dining/entertaining area opening onto the terrace and garden which also internally connects the superb kitchen/breakfast room and the separate sitting area with contemporary log burning stove. There is also the benefit of a Build Zone 10 Year Warranty.
