Nestled at the end of a row of three historic village cottages, this charming period home has been occupied by the same family since the late 1800's. Over the course of a century, improvements have been made to the 18th century original including a significant extension and expansion of the bedrooms. Offered for sale for the first time since 1953, the cottage provides exciting potential for further improvements and possible remodelling to create a home of considerable charm, character and comfort for generations to come.
At the front of the cottage a stable door opens into a glazed entrance porch encasing a solid timber entrance door which in turn opens to the Dining room. Part of the original 18th century cottage, this is a historic room centred around an inglenook fireplace with canopied hearth, ceiling beams and window seated casements. A latch door gives access to the staircase whilst an opening continues through into the Kitchen with further latch door to an under stairs cupboard. The Kitchen is fitted with roll edge work surfaces and cupboard units, a 4 ring electric hob and oven, larder cupboard with space for under-counter fridge whilst also housing an oil fired boiler serving the domestic hot water and central heating system. A ledge and braced door from the Kitchen leads through to the dual aspect Sitting Room, generously proportioned with a marble fireplace at one end housing a Parkray style solid fuel stove.
Ledge and braced latch doors from the first floor landing open to three double bedrooms, each with casement windows and one featuring an original cast iron register grate. All three bedrooms are served by a Bathroom with bath, basin and w.c.OUTSIDE
