A broad full width living room (22'9 x 12'6 ) provides an extremely light and highly characterful main reception room with windows to either side of the entrance door, one with fitted window seat, beamed ceiling, staircase rising to the first floor and magnificent granite inglenook fireplace with freestanding moreso woodburner on a plinth and raised slate hearth and timber mantel. A panelled door leads into a versatile dining room, again with beamed ceiling, window and casement door overlooking and opening onto an extremely attractive rear garden, and with archway into the kitchen with comprehensive shaker-style units, tiled splashbacks, integrated appliances and oil fired boiler providing domestic hot water and central heating.

To the first floor, there are three bedrooms, two with part barreled ceilings, and a most attractively appointed bathroom/WC with traditional-style Charlotte suite, including a high flush WC. The gardens to the rear of the property are a real feature, being deep, attractively landscaped, well stocked, sunny and well enclosed to all boundaries. Immediately to the rear of the cottage is a large patio area, and a deep tree and shrub-lined lawn extends to the rear boundary with part glazed summerhouse.
