Formally two cottages and reputed to have been built around 1800, the welcoming character accommodation is approached from the ENTRANCE PORCH into the inviting ENTRANCE HALL with pleasing flagstones, part panelled walls, timber beam, and the staircase rising. The SITTING ROOM with views of the village scape is a convivial reception room and centred around the cosy brick fireplace and hearth with timber mantel and woodburning stove for those cooler evenings. The heart of the home lies in the open plan KITCHEN & DINING ROOM providing a most sociable space for entertaining and family gatherings. To the dining room area is a delightful window seat, adjacent is the exposed brick fireplace with bressummer beam and bread oven and fitted with a gas, log effect stove providing a cosy ambience. Able to accommodate a sizeable dining table, the dining room adjoins the KITCHEN. The bespoke kitchen has an array of wall mounted and floor-based units, with ‘Cosmic Black’™ granite counter tops that beautifully compliment. Integral Neff™ appliances include the Ceran™ hob with fume hood over, double oven, full height fridge and an undercounter freezer. Further natural light comes courtesy of the window to the rear of the cottage.
