The Property

This Grade II Listed cottage dates from the early-mid 19th Century and lies on a no-through road in a quiet and sought after part of the town. It has replacement double glazed windows and a good sized rear garden which enjoys a westerly aspect. Internally there is a deceptive amount of accommodation, which is well presented throughout.

There is an attractive brick recess, and a tiled floor that continues into the kitchen area. This has a good range of units and oak shelving with concealed lighting. Built-in appliances include an electric oven cooker, gas hob and extractor over, plus an integrated dishwasher. A door leads to the sun room at the rear which has a tiled floor and access to the garden. On the first floor, the landing has a conservation roof light and doors off to the bedroom, which has a built-in wardrobe, cupboard and shelves.
