A truly delightful Grade II Listed detached cottage believed to date from the early 17th Century. It has the added benefit of being available with no onward chain.

It has been tastefully and sympathetically refurbished and now blends the best of the modern with the character of its period and enjoys a heart of village position. Improvements include refitted bathrooms, replaced carpeting and together with earlier work in the kitchen it is a ready to move into option. The ground floor has an entrance hall with cloakroom, doors lead either side into two reception rooms - the main sitting room with stone fireplace with woodburner, and the other a play room or quiet room/study. The kitchen is nicely fitted with wooden fronted units, beyond the kitchen is the dining room with a flagged floor and exposed ceiling timbers.

The first floor boasts three good bedrooms and three bathrooms/shower rooms. Two small staircases lead up to a bedroom/playroom and a study with storage area.

Outside, the cottage is oriented side on to the road with the garden to one side. Electric gates open to a gravelled drive leading to a single garage with the remaining garden comprises lawn and planted borders/beds.
