Property description

This delightful three bedroom detached cottage is located at the heart of this popular village and dates back, we understand, some two hundred years. The attractive accommodation is arranged over two floors with the benefit of a delightfully maintained and enclosed garden and has been the subject of a significant number of improvements in recent years. The charming and characterful accommodation benefits from a kitchen with steps rising to a wonderful lounge/dining room with the sitting area separated from the dining area by a centrally located open tread staircase and where the lounge has a Charnwood C5 multi fuel stove providing a real warm focus to this cottage sitting room. In addition to the open plan living area there is a further ground floor study/snug whilst the first floor comprises three good sized bedrooms along with a recently refitted shower room. The central heating system is operated from an electric boiler and there is a combination of double glazing, secondary glazing and single glazed windows. A particular feature is the delightful and attractively maintained enclosed garden which is predominantly located essentially to the front of the property. A farm style gate gives access to the rear and a viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the accommodation available.
