A CHARMING GRADE II LISTED THATCH AND STONE COTTAGE WITH GREAT POTENTIAL AND A DELIGHTFUL LARGE GARDEN IN EXCESS OF HALF AN ACRE IDEAL FOR THE NATURE LOVER
DESCRIPTION: This is a most unusual property being Grade II listed originally constructed of stone elevations under a thatch roof with later extensions. The house does have the benefit of oil fired central heating and some refurbishment has been carried out but there is great further potential. The thatch requires renewal but further modernisation could be carried out to the interior with ease. The accommodation is laid out on two floors with two separate staircases serving the first floor bedrooms and bathrooms. There is ample space at the side of the cottage for a garage, subject to the necessary approvals, and there is off road parking at present. There is a long rear garden sloping down to the stream. This garden at present is fairly overgrown but has enormous potential for a nature lover to create a fabulous water garden.
