Detached CHARACTERFUL STONE BUILT cottage providing deceptively SPACIOUS ACCOMMODATION. Situated in the heart of the popular village within walking distance of amenities.

A wide window provides natural light and a door leads to the good sized dining kitchen which has a range of base and eye level units with work surfaces and inset sink unit set below a side facing window, space for appliances and a wall mounted central heating boiler.

Doors lead back to the hall and to the lovely family room which has an exposed stone wall, French doors to the garden, a door to the fitted utility room which has units with work surfaces, sink units with space for appliances and a further door to the fully tiled shower room with a fitted white suite.

To the first floor, the landing leads to the four good sized bedrooms, each able to accommodate a double bed and each also having the benefit of en-suite facilities.

Space saving stairs from the first floor landing leads to the spacious attic area, presently divided into three areas, having power and providing a large amount of potential subject to obtaining the necessary consent/permissions.

Outside: to the side of the property is a gravelled and paved patio with a timber pergola and raised shrubbed borders, all providing a relatively quiet seating area enjoying a degree of privacy.

To the front of the property is a garden laid to lawn with dry stone edging and patio area plus matching retaining wall with established shrubs.

A gravelled driveway provides off road parking for several vehicles.
