A CHARMING DETACHED GRADE II LISTED COTTAGE WHICH HAS BEEN IN THE SAME FAMILY OWNERSHIP FOR NEARLY FIFTY YEARS SET IN A LARGE GARDEN IN THE CENTRE OF THIS POPULAR VILLAGE
DESCRIPTION: This lovely and spacious detached cottage was originally two cottages with the adjacent village bakery. We understand it dates back to the 1750s and is a mixture of brick, stone and cob elevations under a thatched roof. In more recent times, an extension was added to the side of brick elevations under a tiled roof giving a superb study and kitchen on the ground floor with marvellous extra bedroom on the first floor. The property has the benefit of an oil fired central heating system and the internal accommodation has great charm and also flexibility.
There is a front door with steps down to the village road but the main point of access is along a path in the side garden leading round to the rear of the house. Here there is a good sized garden laid mainly to lawn with flower beds and shrubs and there is a useful garden shed, greenhouse and thatched store room. At the far end with access from the adjacent lane there is a garage/store room.
