Rarely does a gem of a cottage such as this become available to purchase in the town, particularly one that offers so well-balanced a combination of practicality and cosy character.
The accommodation has been sympathetically decorated and presented to be in keeping with a cottage of this age: natural wood doors with ceramic furniture; wooden flooring in the sitting room; flagstones in the dining room, kitchen and utility room; exposed beams and brickwork throughout the ground floor, and traditional style column radiators.
On the ground floor, either side of the front door are the sitting and dining rooms; both with fireplaces, one with a fitted solid fuel stove. Stairs rise from the sitting room to the first floor and the dining room is open to the kitchen. This is fitted with a range of matching wall and base units, built in appliances and a wall mounted gas boiler. From the kitchen a door leads to the utility room, cloak room and a back door to the courtyard.
The two first floor bedrooms each have an ensuite shower room: the principal bedroom with windows to both front and rear and an ensuite fitted in a classic, Italian marbled style. Continuing the traditional décor of the house, the second bedroom has a more contemporary style of ensuite.
Whether the cottage is lived in as a full time home or a second, lock up and leave, pied a terre, the outside space will suit those wanting the practicality of minimal outside space. There’s just enough room in the courtyard, with clever thinking and an eye for design, to create a very enjoyable town garden and outside seating area.
