ORIGINALLY 3 BEDS! Beautiful, Period Built Detached Country Cottage On a Large Corner Plot With Gorgeous Gardens. Very Attractively Presented Throughout. Tremendous Charm & Character. Two Double Bedrooms. Recently Re-Fitted Kitchen. Detached Double Garage. Delightful Setting & Simply Must Be Viewed.
Magnolia Cottage is a wonderful, enviable property, one that will delight all those that view. From the very first glimpse the property has tremendous kerb appeal. It exudes immense charm and character which is repeated inside as well as out. This is exemplified by exposed beams to ceilings and feature fireplaces to both the sitting room and dining area. This charm and character being complemented by modern touches such as a stylish refitted kitchen with built in appliances.
The property stands on a particularly large corner plot with gorgeous gardens to all sides. The corner plot provides for off street access to a detached double garage from Side Lane. The size of the plot also provides for considerable potential for extension of the cottage which subject to achieving the necessary consents could be achieved and yet still leave an above average size garden for the newly enlarged property. The gorgeous gardens offer a large lawn, to the side of the house whilst to the rear are numerous, beautiful flower and shrub beds which are thoughtfully and carefully planted
The mention of extension should not be taken to imply the cottage is lacking in any sense, far from it! Indeed for many the property would be more than large enough with well proportioned rooms throughout. Although now offering two bedrooms the property was formerly a three bedroom cottage. The current owners only needed two bedrooms and so made two bedrooms into one truly capacious master bedroom which is just under 20ft. long.
This is a property that simply must be viewed! We would respectively encourage you to reserve your appointment slot before its too late.

The garden to the side of the house is a mainly laid to lawn and bordered by a mix of mature hedging, trees as well as flowering plants and shrubs. To the far end of the garden there is a large garden store/workshop having the benefit of power and lighting.
FUN FACT: We are told that the store was once used as a 'watering hole' for local smallholders, who at the end of a busy day would gather to enjoy a pint of their favourite tipple, which had been collected in jugs from the local Saville Arms public.
Beyond this and to the rear of the cottage the garden extends with raise stone built flower beds, these inset with a wide variety of beautiful flowers and shrubs, this giving way to a generous detached concrete section double garage with an up and over door.
