Tudor Cottage is a home that is sure to satisfy even the most discerning of purchasers. Not only does it enjoy a picturesque setting but internally affords highly sought after period charm and character. This in turn is complemented and enhanced by way of a fabulous interior with stylish, contemporary, high quality fixtures and fittings. There are stripped Oak beamed ceilings, open fireplaces in rustic brick or cast iron, two with inset log burners, a vintage Rayburn range* and multi pane windows.
Deceptively spacious is a phrase often over used and incorrectly applied by agents, this is definitely "not" the case with Tudor Cottage. A mere glance could be very misleading as to the amount and size of accommodation on offer. All rooms are of generous proportions with four double proportion bedrooms, two spacious reception rooms, big breakfast kitchen (with utility and wc off). To the first floor along with two double bedrooms there is a stunning and unusually large bathroom. Due to this space and flexibility of layout the property would suit a wide range of buyers. It is more than large enough to accommodate a family but not too large for couples either.
Externally the property does not disappoint either with delightful gardens to three sides as well as a detached brick built GARAGE with adjacent store/workshop.
