Now fully renovated, the current owners have been sympathetic to the period feel by tastefully marrying modern styling to the existing character. 

The main part of the property has a well-equipped, good-sized kitchen/diner, a boot room with WC and a superb sitting room. 

In addition there is an ample master bedroom with an en-suite shower room, two further generous double bedrooms and an elegant family bathroom on the first floor. 

The older and particularly characterful part of the cottage is currently used as a self-contained annexe which consists of a study, utility room, garden room and a delightful snug with stairs off to the master double bedroom with cloakroom en-suite.

Externally the property sits within a plot of half-an-acre and includes an array of wonderful flower beds in a good-sized rear garden mostly laid to lawn with courtyard gravel area and two large apple trees. 

The majority of the planting areas are edged with reclaimed railway sleepers.
