Description

This charming stone house is a former estate workers cottage. It offers traditional accommodation, set over two floors, and has attractive features such as some original doors, mullioned windows and an open fire. The cottage has been tenanted for many years and as a result, is in need of some updating. Having said that, basic works and maintenance have been carried out, including the recent installation of new, timber, double glazed windows. 

The solid timber front door opens to a small hall which in turn leads through to the living room. This has a mullioned window to the front. The open fireplace has a stone surround, and a storage cupboard to the side. Two deep, full height storage cupboards are built-in beside the stairs. 

The back hall has a door to the garden and doors off to the kitchen and the bathroom. 

The kitchen is fitted with a range of units with work-surface and sink. There is space for appliances. 

The bathroom is fitted with a suite comprising WC, wash basin and bath with shower above. The airing cupboard houses the hot water cylinder and shelving. 

A door leads from the living room to the stairs. The landing has a window to the rear and a deep storage cupboard. There are three comfortable bedrooms, two of which have windows overlooking the front garden and the third overlooking the rear garden. 

The cottage has a lawned front garden enclosed by a picket fence. A gated path leads to the front door. 

The rear garden has a small lawn. To the back of the garden is a stone barn, divided into two useful stores. 

There is a right of way to and from the property, over the neighbouring gardens.
