This stone built end of terrace cottage is Grade II Listed and is thought to date from the early 1800's. It has been extended at the rear and now provides deceptively spacious accommodation. Since purchasing in 2015, the current owners have refurbished and upgraded the cottage throughout, and improved the garage and equally the garden, which is a delightful feature of the property. It lies in a sought after location, on a no-through road, just off The Horsefair. Well presented period properties with a garage and parking are few and far between, so an early viewing is highly recommended.
The front door leads into the snug which has a stone fireplace with brick detailing. The woodblock flooring continues into the adjacent dining room where a former fireplace has been converted to storage. The kitchen is flooded with natural light from three side windows and has an extensive range of units including an electric oven, induction hob, with extractor over, and a microwave. The dishwasher, fridge, freezer and wine cooler are all integrated. An opening leads off to the utility area with matching units. The washing machine and tumble drier are integrated. There is an external door and a shower room adjacent, together with double doors to the dining room. At the rear is the large dual aspect sitting room, which has a log burner, fitted book shelves and French doors into the garden. On the first floor, there is a seating area on the landing and two built-in storage cupboards. The dual aspect main bedroom at the rear has one wall of built-in wardrobes and an en suite shower. The family bathroom has a mains shower over the bath and a vanity basin. At the front is a another double bedroom with ceiling beams, an under stair cupboard and a painted stone wall including a lovely old fireplace.
