Currently the formal lounge is located on the left side of the property and enjoys projected bay to the rear aspect with stunning views over the courtyard and rolling country views beyond. A striking feature of this space is the inset log burning stove with tiled hearth and art deco style feature tiled surround.

The rear lobby provides external access to the courtyard as well as doors communicating to the downstairs shower room/ utility space. A further opening and step-up lead into the country style kitchen which has been refitted by the current residents. This kitchen has all of the mod cons you could need from a contemporary kitchen whilst still remaining in keeping with the period of the cottage.

There is an eye level double oven, inset induction hob with extractor unit over, stainless steel one and a half bowl sink with draining unit overlooking the front via window, boiler housed within the kitchen, there is a subway tiled splashback and wall and ceiling lights, there are also exposed beams to ceiling.

The master bedroom is located to the right off the landing and is a bright and airy space with vaulted ceiling and spectacular rolling countryside views to the rear. There are two further bedrooms, one of which is a good sized double and the other being a cosy single room. Both bedrooms enjoy the same stunning field views to the rear. The refitted bathroom has been thoughtfully modernised with Victorian style tiled flooring, reclaimed timber panelled bath with gold mixer taps over. There is a low-level flush W.C and pedestal wash hand basing with further gold mixer taps, giving this bathroom a luxury feel.
Externally this property enjoys a courtyard at the rear which allows an excellent community feel, however there is a further private garden area which is walled and has a laid lawn, mature shrubs and planting as well as vegetable plot to the rear. There is a timber constructed summer house currently in use as an artist’s studio. The property also benefits from a generous double garage ideal for storage or potential for conversion to workshop or whatever suits your circumstances. The garden is South facing and enjoys plenty of sun throughout the day into the early evening. This is the perfect place to entertain family and friends.Situation
