This Beautifully Presented and maintained CHOCOLATE BOX COTTAGE offers a huge amount of CHARACTER and an abundance of PERIOD CHARM such as exposed ceiling beams, stone mullion windows and flag stone flooring. The property is a wonderful Grade II listed mid 17 th century cottage with an attractive stone tiled roof which complements the interior charm. The cottage is entered through a gabled entrance to the front which leads to the living room, separate dining room, kitchen, cloakroom and boot room/orangery. To the first floor there are three beautifully presented bedrooms, the master with en suite facilities and a recently fitted bathroom suite and many of the internal doors and fittings are of solid Elm and Oak. The immaculate presentation is not confined solely to the interior as the gardens are also a real delight and the current owners have spent a huge amount of time creating a wonderful haven. There is also ample parking for the property on a pretty stone chipped driveway. In short for the cottage to be fully appreciated an internal viewing is recommended.
