Close to both town and country, is this 2 double bedroom period cottage which has been significantly improved by our vendors creating a lovely characterful home.
The sitting room is front aspect and has a large wooden sash window looking into the courtyard. To one side is a fireplace housing a multifuel wood burner. A doorway leads through to the rear aspect kitchen with a range of refitted base level units incorporating an oven and induction hob top. Neatly tucked away under the staircase is a utility cupboard.
On the first floor are two double bedrooms, a bathroom and separate W/C. The rear aspect bedroom enjoys uninterrupted views towards St. Stephens and nearby open countryside. The bathroom has a matching two-piece suite with a shower over the bath. A further staircase leads up to a useful loft room which is currently used as a study area and has a roof light and side aspect window.
Directly in front of the property is an enclosed courtyard area suitable for pot plants and bistro table. To the rear of the cottage is an attached garage accessed via two wooden doors offering very good storage or possibly could be utilised as a workshop.
