A characterful Victorian cottage set back from the road, offering two generously proportioned bedrooms and a wealth of period features, such as stunning exposed brick fireplaces, latch-key doors and stained glass windows are some of the quirky characteristics you will find in this beautiful home. This lovely cottage also boasts a garden that reaches over 250 ft long with several outbuildings that have great potential.
The main front door opens into a vaulted lobby, where you will find plenty of place for shoes and coats. The inner door welcomes a cosy living room with beams running through the ceiling and panelled painted walls. There is an exposed brick fireplace that has an electric wood burning style stove that sits upon an original tiled hearth.
The dining room has a beautiful brick floor and hosts a fireplace with a Norwegian Jotul stove, this is currently just a feature but could possibly be reinstated as a working log burning fire. Rich wood panelling and built-in cupboards also bring character and style to this lovely space. A stunning internal stained-glass door connects the dining space with the kitchen.
Overlooking the garden, this quirky shaped kitchen is perfectly equipped with traditionally styled wall and floor units. Under floor heating sits beneath attractive ceramic tiles and a frosted window in the roof allows light to flood into this charming space.
The winding stairs rise to the first floor where one will find a double bedroom and perfectly appointed family bathroom. Another winding staircase leads to another generously sized bedroom that sits neatly in the loft.
The front of the property is charming with lovely original arched lancet style wooden windows. The front door is set back from the house and a dropped curve creates a smart driveway.
To the rear, the garden measures over 250 ft, and is mainly laid to lawn with a few patio areas, ideal for alfresco dining. There is a shed that would make a delightful workshop or bicycles storage.
Another outhouse that was previously used as an art studio sits halfway along this beautiful garden and could offer some wonderful opportunities.
