This unspoilt three double bedroom property exudes warmth, character and history. The interior remains largely unchanged, but it is clear that with sympathetic modernisation, this cottage could be a very special home indeed. Set tucked back from the street, the beautiful cottage gardens to both the front and side, which are in perfect harmony with the period and character of the residence, give it a setting that would grace any Agatha Christie drama. In fact, you can almost picture her famous super sleuth pruning the beautiful rose on the front of the house while keeping an eye out on the comings and goings in the village. For any budding sleuths out there, the house is conveniently situated in the heart of the village, very close to many of the amenities. It also benefits from an attached garage to the front and off-road parking. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate all that this fascinating period cottage has to offer.
The front door opens into a small brick floor entrance area which gives access to both the sitting and dining rooms.

The main entrance to the cottage is approached through a small wooden gate. A brick path leads you through the beautiful mature cottage borders until you reach the step that leads you to the front door. The delightful English cottage gardens to the front and side of the house are a particular feature of this property. There is a beautiful climbing rose on the front elevation of the house and two lovely apple trees in the borders. A further gate on the other side of the garden takes you onto the driveway which provides parking for two cars in front of the garage. This in turn leads you to another gate which takes you through to a very private enclosed cottage garden which sits at the side of the cottage where there is a large wood store / shed and outhouse.
