DESCRIPTION Believed to have been built c.1850, this large semi detached period cottage occupies a private position with its own driveway, ample parking and a large garden c. 0.3 acre. Thought to have been perhaps two cottages at some point, the property offers spacious and well presented accommodation extending in all to around 2419 sq.ft.
Over the past twenty years, further land was purchased to enlarge the garden and create its own gated driveway, whilst the cottage was altered internally to provide for comfortable family living. Today, it boasts a much sought-after open plan kitchen/family room, including a superb kitchen with granite worksurfaces, a separate 26' living room and a further study/games room. Upstairs, there is a spacious family bathroom and five bedrooms; the large master bedroom having its own staircase and a private adjoining bathroom. The property has a great deal of character with traditional fireplaces and wood burning stoves and there is excellent storage available both inside and out. A gravelled drive provides parking space for several cars and vehicles whilst the mainly lawned gardens are bounded by mature hedges providing good privacy. Strategic patios and terraces allow for sun in the garden at all times of the day.
