DESCRIPTION
Situated down a private path accessed via a gate from Fore Street, this delightful end-terrace cottage offers a wealth of character features such as a woodburner, stripped floorboards and period fireplaces. The property was originally two smaller cottages which have been combined, retaining both staircases to create flexible accommodation. Modern comforts such as Everest double glazed sash windows to the front and a gas combi boiler help to create a cosy comfortable interior. In brief the accommodation comprises four bedrooms (two doubles and two singles), two bathrooms (one en-suite), three reception rooms, kitchen and large external utility/store room. A viewing is advised to appreciate the unique individuality of this property. ACCOMMODATION
At the front of the property is an open porch over the front door (partially glazed uPVC with decorative glass insert) opening to an enclosed porch with quarry tiled floor. A partially glazed wooden door to the front opens into the dining room. The dining room has doors to the kitchen, sitting room and garden room/study. The room boasts character features such as stripped floorboards, period fireplace and uPVC sash window to the front. The front staircase leads to the first floor from the dining room. The kitchen has a range of wall and floor mounted cupboards, a Belling range (available by separate negotiation), stainless steel sink, integrated undercounter fridge and separate freezer and integrated Neff microwave. A uPVC window enjoys a sunny aspect overlooking the garden.
The sitting room also boasts character features such as uPVC sash window to the front elevation, multi-fuel stove/wood-burner upon a slate hearth with wooden mantel and surround, stripped floorboards, adjustable shelving, two obscured glass windows to rear. A new wooden plank door with metal latch opens to the rear staircase. Double doors open from the dining room into the garden room (currently used as a home office) which has a wonderful sunny position overlooking the rear garden, with uPVC windows to two sides and French windows providing access to the garden.
The first floor can be accessed by either the front (from the dining room) or rear staircase (from the sitting room). The front landing has doors to two bedrooms; a double bedroom with period fireplace, built in cupboard and uPVC sash window to the front, and a generous single bedroom with built-in wardrobe and double aspect including a view over the garden. The family bathroom is also accessed from the front landing which overlooks the rear garden and has a modern contemporary suite comprising bath with shower over, pedestal basin and WC, with slate floor tiles.
