Period Charm

Dating back to the 18th century, this charming redbrick cottage has plenty of kerb appeal and period features such as exposed beams, flagstone floors and an imposing inglenook fireplace are found throughout the accommodation arranged over three storeys.

At the rear of the cottage is a modern addition of a well-proportioned conservatory that leads out onto the rear garden.

Across the road there is an off-road parking area and the property is set behind a red brick wall where traditional iron gates lead you to the front door.


A hallway with plenty of useful hanging space leads down to the kitchen which sits at the heart of the cottage and is fitted with shaker styled units beneath a wooden work surface standing on a terracotta tiled floor.

The character rich living room is found to the front of the property which still has the original flagstone flooring and you simply cannot miss the enormous inglenook fireplace, which has an oak bressummer beam above and a wood-burner set within.

Beyond the kitchen to the rear, a door leads
into a small lobby where you will find the washing machine tucked away before you reach the main bathroom.

This spacious bathroom has a pedestal bath and shower over alongside the usual utilities you would expect to find here.

At the back of the house is a L-shaped conservatory which was added back in 2006 and provides the cottage with a dining area, a place to entertain or simply a place to sit and enjoy the rear garden.

Upstairs, three bedrooms are spread across two further floors. On the top floor there is a spacious double. On the first floor lie the other two bedrooms and the current owners have opened one into the other to create a dressing area which is easily revertible if required.
