Cottage front garden
Stepping through the front door you are greeted by the cosy living room with attractive cast iron fireplace at it's core. This room also boasts many other original features, such as exposed ceiling beam, picture rails, brick floor and deep arched storage cupboard. A planked door opens up into the dining room, formerly the kitchen once upon a time. This room also boasts exposed timbers and an open stud-work partition, providing essential storage options. A modern kitchen has been added, bridging the space between what was once the back of the cottage, to the former outbuilding which has now been incorporated as part of the property. The brick and flint wall has been left exposed as a nice feature to this compact but practical room. Within you will find a range of fitted wall and floor storage units, five-burner gas hob with extractor, eye-level double oven and space for a washing machine and tall fridge-freezer. The converted outbuilding is currently being used as a third bedroom, a double room in size with it's own ensuite fitted with shower cubicle, WC and wash basin. A typical cottage staircase leads from the dining room up to the first floor landing. To the front of the property you will find the master bedroom which is a generous sized double room. To the rear you will find the single bedroom, leading to the upstairs bathroom which is fitted with bath and shower attachment, WC and wash basin. A Worcester gas combination boiler is also housed within.
A gravel path escorts you alongside a lilac hedge and up through the pretty front cottage garden, under a pergola archway and to the front door. A low brick and flint wall marks the boundary and encapsulated within is a pond that attracts frogs, newts, ducks and their chicks. The rear courtyard is compact but contains a neat storage shed and bike store, along with access to the cottage via the kitchen and to the street via a back gate. Brick and flint walls encase this pleasant spot to catch the afternoon sun.
