General Description


Nestled in scenic open countryside, this delightful end-terrace stone-built cottage lies behind a low stone wall bordering a gravel driveway leading to a detached garage. The front door opens into a small yet welcoming hallway. To your left, an east-facing living room awaits. With a spacious layout, tasteful interior design, log burning stove nestled in a stone hearth and a large portrait window overlooking the front of the property it exudes warmth and comfort. From here you move through to a second internal hallway leading to the rear kitchen. Generously proportioned and bright this west-facing room is equipped with handleless gloss cream wall and floor units, monochrome metro-tiled splashback, and quartz-effect worktops. High-spec integrated appliances include a BOSCH oven and hob. Leading in to the adjoining and versatile sunroom currently utilised as a dining room it is very much at the heart of this home. With exposed stone work and a chic décor, the sun room with French doors opening out to the rear garden is a superb addition to this home and only enhances its appeal. To the front of the property the spacious double bedroom is bathed in plentiful natural light, and with carpeting, a wall-hung living flame fireplace, and built-in wardrobes is a comfortable retreat. Completing the layout on this floor is a well-appointed bathroom with a bath, washbasin built into vanity, shower, WC, and a chrome towel radiator, along with a smaller double bedroom with bespoke built-in cabinetry. Ascending the staircase the floored attic is home to two light and airy attic rooms that allow for a versatile furniture configuration and are decorated with a serene colour palette and wood-inspired flooring.


The landscaped west-facing rear garden blends decorative stones, sandstone paving, raised decking and a roofed pergola to create an idyllic haven for children, family life and entertaining. 

Gravel driveway and detached garage provide ample off-street parking.
