Separate sitting room, bespoke farmhouse style kitchen with granite worktops, two bedrooms and a lovely bathroom on the first floor, with the addition of a second floor loft room. Ample parking, large garage/workshop and an extensive beautifully maintained garden. Viewing strongly advised!
Dating back to the 1800's is this wonderful example of a period cottage. Modernised by the current owners with great attention to detail, with lots of character, charm and features including solid Oak floors in many of the rooms, internal latch doors, large ceiling beams to the downstairs rooms and a great sized living room with wood burning stove and dining area extension, with Velux window and double doors leading out to the impressive patio and garden.
The cottage also has bespoke double glazing, central heating with a combination boiler and has also been re-roofed. In addition to the main living room, is a separate sitting room, adjoining the kitchen which is also bespoke with solid granite worktops, Belfast sink, centre island and space for a 900mm range cooker.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms, the master with traditional style built-in wardrobes and a lovely bathroom with claw & ball roll top bath and separate cubicle with a Victorian style shower. Latch door and stairs lead up to a very useful loft room with Velux window.
Outside, the cottage is approached along a private lane directly off Main Street. A tarmac drive provides parking for at least two cars, with double doors leading in to the 5.55m x 3.0m garage/workshop. Side gate leads to a covered block paved storm porch with outside tap and a large stone flagged patio with raised planters. The well maintained lawned gardens are unusually big for a property like this making it quite unique, and even has a view of St Wilfrid's church which is just across the road.
