At over 750 square feet this fantastic property offers a rich and appealing mix of retained period charm. Packed full of character including a large sash bay window, wooden floorboards, original fireplace and luxurious shadow cornicing, the principal bedroom offers ample space for traditional bedroom furnishings plus a desk if required. A versatile room, either keep as a generous double bedroom or repurpose into a grand second lounge area, depending on your needs. Featuring the same character, a comfortable second double bedroom sits adjacent, peacefully tucked away from the already quiet road with a French door opening out to the private garden, allowing fresh air to breeze through creating an idyllic room in which to unwind.

A neutral family-sized bathroom separates the bedrooms from the open plan reception room, which is arranged at the rear of the property. A true heart of the home, the reception room offers ample space to lounge, cook and dine. To one end, a dine-in kitchen boasts generous surface space and storage in neat white cabinetry plus room for a well-sized dining table. Warming wooden floors flow into the lounge area to the rear, ideal for relaxing with family or friends with pretty views over the garden beyond.

This wonderful home also benefits from a cellar, perfect for storing away those essential but rarely used items.
