This detached grade ll listed cottage originally formed a number of cottages with adjoining village shop, which over the years has been adapted to create what is now a spacious family home with versatile accommodation.

Approached from the front there is a gated courtyard garden with planted shrubs and a path leading around the side and to the rear. To the front, there is also a double garage with twin doors and parking outside whilst one of the garage features a mezzanine storage level with power connected. The rear courtyard garden is well screened and sheltered offering low maintenance and what could be an excellent entertaining area with coals sheds, green house and further useful outbuilding.
The front door opens into a flagstone laid entrance hall with door leading to the main living room; with feature open fireplace and a door in turn to a recently installed country style kitchen/breakfast room; where there is further original flagstone flooring. To the other flank of the entrance hall there is a spacious traditional style bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower cubicle whilst the hall continues to a further inner hall (currently utilised as a utility area), bedroom five/family room and a hardwood staircase ascending to the first floor.
