Property description

A quite enchanting two bedroom detached Grade II listed thatched cottage located in a very pleasant semi-rural farmland setting on a well-established plot of around a quarter of an acre.

This country cottage is located in a very private position on the edge of town and is offered for sale with no onward chain. In our view, this is a very rare opportunity to modernise, restore and extend what is a fundamentally a beautiful period building into a modern quintessential country home. Whilst in need of some work, this home boasts many endearing features typical of homes of this era. The current accommodation comprises an entrance area which leads immediately into a galley kitchen, bathroom, lounge with wood-burning stove, study and dining room. Two staircases lead to the first floor, which has two large bedrooms. To the side of the property there is driveway parking and garage. The property offers established gardens of approximately a quarter of an acre, which back on to open fields and rolling countryside. For the potential, location and grounds to be fully appreciated; this property must be viewed.
