Property Information & Specifications
The cottage was acquired by the current owners in 2001 and over the following 12 month period, was extended and sympathetically refurbished.

Works and upgrades included:

o New insulated roof and felt
o New uPVC windows throughout
o Electrical re-wire

o New floor coverings including a combination of slate, oak and pine
o Kitchen with sold oak units
o New bathroom with spa bath, en-suite and ground floor cloakroom with WC
o Plaster and painted walls

In addition to the above, planning was granted for the detached double garage which has power points, lighting and an electric sectional door.

Given the age of the property, which we believe has origins in the early / mid 1800's, it is impressively energy efficient and has an energy performance rating of 'C' (see attached EPC).

Ground Floor
The ground floor accommodates a front porch with flagstone floor, living room, study, kitchen & breakfast room, cloakroom and dedicated utility room with 'Belfast' sink.

The large dual aspect living room features a stripped pine floor, pine staircase rising to the first floor and attractive wrought iron fireplace with open fire and polished slate hearth.

The well equipped kitchen, with solid oak units and 'Range' style oven boasts a large seating area, slate floor and French doors which open onto a paved terrace with sunny aspect.

The modern, fully tiled cloakroom has a WC with concealed cistern, vanity wash hand basin and shower with corner enclosure and mixer tap.

First Floor.
The first floor hosts 4 double bedrooms.

The impressively proportioned master features a solid oak floor and small flight of stairs which rise to an en-suite bathroom. It also has three windows with elevated views across the garden and beyond.

A family bathroom with spa bath and built in cabinets completes the accommodation.

Attic Space
The substantial loft space is sub-divided into three, large, interconnecting areas which combined total in excess of 60 sq m (650 sq ft).

Although ideal for storage, the area is presently used as a play area.

A 'porthole' style window and pair of 'Velux' sky lights provide natural light and there is restricted headroom towards the eaves.

The extensive grounds encompass a mature garden which is predominantly laid to lawn, established kitchen garden and small area of woodland.

They also accommodate an impressive summer house with slate terrace.

The boundaries are bordered in part by mature trees which offer natural privacy and screening.

Access to the generous block paved driveway is via a broad, electric gate.
