Sarum Cottage has been extensively, impressively and sympathetically updated and improved by the current vendors in recent years to create a very individual home.

To the right, there is a large kitchen diner, with bespoke black granite, hand made oak worktops and units, and double doors that lead out to the south-facing terrace. Off the kitchen is a family room, with wood-burning stove, making this part of the house and ideal entertaining space. There is a second living room, with doors out onto the east-facing part of the garden, a study looking out over the fields to the front, a utility room and downstairs w.c. with underfloor heating. Moving to the first floor, the property has a dual aspect master bedroom with views over the garden, and an en suite shower room.
