This is a fantastic and extremely rare opportunity to purchase a Grade II* listed village cottage with great scope for enhancement being sold for the first time in over 30 years. The property is full of charm and character with numerous period features including many exposed beams and timbers all of which have been skillfully blended to work with modern living styles. Of particular note is the very pretty fireplace in the sitting room, the old style doors and timber posts as well as the lovely part timbered ceiling in the master bedroom.

The accommodation flows beautifully straight from the entrance from where stairs lead up to the first floor bedrooms and a door leads into the large sitting room with its wonderful old stone fireplace. From here there is a door to the dining room which also has a fine old stone fireplace and then from here access to the breakfast area and well fitted shaker style kitchen. Also on the ground floor there is a bathroom with 3 piece suite. On the first floor a long landing provides access to the 3 lovely bedrooms which have lovely outlooks to the side over the little rec. In addition a curious small staircase also leads from the landing to a useful semi-attic store room.

At the far end of the garden there is a useful garden summerhouse/store.
