A solid wooden front door opens from The Street into a spacious, double aspect open plan sitting room/dining space. To the front of the room a double glazed window provides natural light and a view of The Street. Exposed brick and beam work is tastefully revealed and stands in contrast to the cottageÂs warming plasterwork, giving a lovely rustic feel to the place.

There is a double glazed window to the side and some useful recessed shelving set into back wall of the room.
A door from the sitting room takes one into a bright and pleasant kitchen space. As you enter, to the left there is a tasteful half panelled, half painted brickwork wall with exposed beams, whilst on the right the door to the shower room. With hardwearing ceramic tile effect laminate flooring the kitchen has a range of wall and base units with roll top worksurface and a breakfast bar. There is also a gas hob with an extractor overhead as well as the boiler and space for white goods. A double glazed window overlooks the rear garden, with a part glazed door next to it providing access.
The shower room has a generous double shower, with a wonderful fanlight providing natural light. There is also a WC and basin and a lovely, tiled floor.
On the first floor a small galleried landing, with attractive wooden panelling, gives access via stripped wooden doors to two characterful, double bedrooms. The room to the rear has a fantastic, vaulted ceiling with original beams as well as access to loft storage space. There is also a double glazed window overlooking the rear garden.
