The Property
The ideal balance of character and practicality becomes quickly apparent upon entering this cosy family home. Original floor-boards lay underfoot and a wealth of exposed beams and timbers run throughout the property, combining beautifully with the Georgian features added at the time. Since becoming owners of the property the current residents have gone to great lengths to sympathetically restore the cottage while also bringing it up to date; UPVC windows to the front have been replaced with bespoke timber double-glazed units, the kitchen and bathroom have been replaced, and the second-floor ensuite was created, fitted with a stunning high quality suite. The wiring and heating system have been renewed, including a new external boiler, pipework and radiators throughout. If the new owner requires more space, planning permission has been granted to extend out from the kitchen, adding a sizeable room to the ground-floor for which the footings are already laid and currently used as a decking area. The planning includes extending out over the garage to provide another double bedroom with ensuite and also covers the reinstating of a more sympathetic front porch, to replace the UPVC/brick one that has already been removed.

Garden & Grounds
The cottage occupies a very generous plot on the outskirts of the village, enjoying spectacular field views to the rear. A quirky timber doorframe and door within the high hedgerow to the front gives way to a spacious natural garden, where a gravel pathway leads up to the front door and around either side of the property to the rear garden. A timber gate in a fabulous crinkle-crankle wall takes you to the long gravel driveway that leads up to the garage, providing parking for many vehicles. The rear garden is a fantastic size and laid mostly to lawn. To the back of the cottage is a large decking area and down the left-hand side is a brick and tiled shed for garden storage.

Location
The property is located just a short walk from the village centre, which includes facilities such as a bakers, butchers, library, primary school, secondary school, leisure centre, swimming pool, doctors and two public houses.
