This detached period cottage presents painted, rendered elevations with double glazed windows beneath a tiled roof. We understand that the property possibly dates back about 150 years and was originally a mill worker's cottage. In more recent years the house has been extended and re-modelled and now offers tastefully modernised, well presented and versatile accommodation arranged over 2 floors. A former detached garage has been converted into a very useful office/studio/occasional 5th bedroom. There is parking for several vehicles and attractive, easily managed, well tended gardens. This is certainly a property that needs to be viewed internally to be fully appreciated.GROUND FLOOR
