Tucked away off a no-through road, this charming semi-detached cottage oozes character and benefits from a garden approaching half an acre in size.

Believed to date from 1806, the cottage is a haven for keen gardeners and whilst not isolated, it offers a high degree of privacy.

One will find three bedrooms, a lounge with an open beamed ceiling, dining room with attractive Victorian tiled floor and a generous fitted kitchen/breakfast room which features a Rangemaster stove. There are remodelled bathrooms on both floors and a sun lounge at the front enjoys an outlook over the enclosed gardens.

The majority of the cottage is double glazed, background heating is provided by night store heaters and an open fire with a back boiler feeds radiators on the first floor. As previously stated there are generous gardens which lie mainly to the front and incorporate an extensive patio ideal for outside entertaining, there is also a range of garages and workshops ideal for storage or for those with outside pursuits and in addition there is parking for six plus vehicles.

We would suggest this is a most versatile and engaging property which offers a high degree of privacy and viewing of our virtual tour is strongly recommended prior to arranging a viewing of the property.
