The cottage’s double front doors open into a vestibule with a mosaic-tiled floor and a stained-glass door to the reception hall. Characterised by timber flooring and subtle, classic décor, the hall leads into the interconnected living accommodation on the right. A sunny, front-facing dining room displays delightful period features including a timber-panelled window, an open Edinburgh Press, and a ceiling with smooth cornicing, and flows openly into a comfortable living area, arranged around an original working fireplace, flanked by a stained-glass window. Accessed from here, a contemporary dining kitchen is flooded with natural light from generous glazing, including a door to a decked terrace in the rear garden. Ample space is available for seated family dining, whilst streamlined, modern cabinetry accommodates generous workspace, an integrated oven, a gas hob, a concealed extractor hood, and space for a freestanding fridge/freezer. An adjoining utility room (with garden access) conveniently houses a washing machine. Returning back through the hall (from the dining kitchen), you reach two of the home’s four bedrooms and a modern shower room. A double bedroom is enhanced by elaborate ceiling cornicing and a traditional press, whilst a single bedroom (with garden access) is currently arranged as a home office, demonstrating great versatility. Openly accessed from the dining room, a hall leads to the two remaining double bedrooms, with the principal bedroom accompanied by built-in wardrobes, generous glazing, and access to the rear garden. Finally, a bathroom comprises a three-piece-suite with a shower-over-bath and vanity storage. Gas central heating and double glazing are found throughout.
Externally, the home sits within delightful, mature gardens. The secluded rear garden is mostly laid to lawn and features a decked terrace, a mono-blocked patio, a woodshed and a cellar for handy outdoor storage. A driveway provides private, off-street parking.
Extras: Included in the sale are all fitted floor coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances and the woodshed. The freestanding fridge/freezer may be available by separate negotiation.
