  • Bedrooms: 3
A rare opportunity to purchase a beautifully presented 1920's cottage in a stunning rural setting surrounded by countryside views and set in just over 1.6 acres. This spacious semi detached, three bedroom property, has been much improved over the years and extended by the current vendors. Currently offering well planned and versatile accommodation with potential for further extension subject to the necessary consents. The extensive grounds are mainly laid to lawn, the outbuildings include a substantial detached barn with power and water supply, this could easily be converted into an office/studio space or a stable block as it formally once was.

The accommodation comprises entrance hall, W.C, good sized sitting/dining room and a separate drawing room. The sitting/dining room is fitted with a log burner, this room follows through to the double aspect drawing room which has French doors leading out to the terrace and garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is located at the rear of the property which has been recently updated to a country style and an internal stable door which leads into the conservatory. Upstairs there are three good sized bedrooms with the master bedroom benefitting from an ensuite shower room. There is also a family bathroom which serves the other two bedrooms. The garden and grounds can be used in a variety of ways. The house is approached via a private lane and has a gravel parking area for two cars in front of the property along with a separate driveway which provides vehicular access to the barn and additional parking area.

NB: The current owners have recently been in contact with the local authority regarding a pre-planning application for the potential to convert the barn into a holiday let, this received a positive response.
