This DELIGHTFUL PERIOD COTTAGE offers character, charm and a central village location. It has LARGE GARDENS TO THE REAR with garage and off road parking, and FURTHER UNLOCKED POTENTIAL FOR EXTENSION (subject to permissions). Viewing essential.

Virginia Cottage has undergone numerous improvements by the current owners such as insulation, re-plastering, replacement bathroom and an upgraded heating system fired by a Stanley range. Oak floor with matching skirting runs through the living area complemented with matching oak cabinet doors and double glazed French windows. It still offers unlocked potential for extension to the kitchen and to the rear to provide enlarged accommodation subject to necessary planning permissions. With that in mind the gardens themselves have been left in an unmade condition ready for landscaping. This is an exciting opportunity to make your own mark on this character cottage.

Set back behind a lawned garden flanked on both sides by mature flowering cherry trees with stone set winding pathway, Virginia Cottage sits behind its canopy porch and entrance door, a large L-shaped open plan lounge, dining and sitting area which has exposed beams, attractive oak flooring throughout, oak shutters to the front windows and reclaimed materials have been used throughout to enhance the cottage’s already apparent charm. There is ample room for both a lounge, dining area and further sitting area overlooking the rear, at the focal point of the room you will find, set upon a reclaimed stone hearth, a log burning stove set within an inglenook style fireplace with reclaimed beamed mantel over. To one side is a fitted storage cupboard with oak doors. Glazed double doors with flanking windows open out into the rear verandah which in turn leads out onto the gardens and has a connecting door through to the kitchen which has base and wall mounted cabinets along two walls with a superb cherry red oil fired Stanley range providing cooking and central heating at the focal point of the room.

Three double bedrooms are on the first floor with character latched cottage doors, bedroom one has a high vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers whilst bedroom three has a built in wardrobe with reclaimed timber doors. The family bathroom is generous in size and has a suite comprising panel bath, pedestal wash basin, w.c and a separate corner quadrant shower cubicle. There is full height tiling to the wall and tiled matching floor.

To the rear of the property you will find a generous sized garden ready for landscaping and a possible building plot subject to the necessary planning permission. A large oversized garage has an up and over entrance door and a driveway provides ample off road parking.

Freehold (purchasers are advised to satisfy themselves as to the tenure via their legal representative).

Mains water, drainage and electricity are believed to be connected to the property. Oil fired central heating. Purchasers are advised to satisfy themselves as to their suitability.
