This beautiful cottage has so much to recommend it. It's 'chocolate box' kerb appeal will be the envy of your friends whilst the inside is packed with character features such as exposed timber beams and a working inglenook fireplace with log burner. Yet there's no need to sacrifice modern conveniences such as gas central heating, utility room or farmhouse-style kitchen with Smeg oven, big induction hob and Belfast ceramic sink. The utility room is a rear facing extension with a conservatory-style roof and large bi-fold oak doors to the back garden. The conservatory also has bi-fold oak doors which open out onto a decked garden area. The room heights are generous for a cottage of this age. Outside to the rear is a fabulous private landscaped garden, with shaped lawn, mature trees and shrubs , plus an architectural feature wall with circular timber deck. The double length garage can be accessed from the driveway and side door to garden. At the rear of the garage is former outside toilets that have been converted into a wood and garden sheds. At the front, the cottage faces the impressive 14th Century Holy Cross church. Beyond the church, just 2 minutes walk through the churchyard, is a large sports field with cricket and football pitches and tennis courts/club. This park area also has a good children's play area with slides and swings etc. If you enjoy the outdoors then this could be perfect for you; there are miles of footpaths and bridleways on your doorstep as well as country lanes for cycling or jogging.
