This pretty, two-bedroom mid-terraced cottage is located in the centre of the charming village, close to the superb amenities and renowned local schools. With period, character features inside and out, such as cast-iron and brick built open fireplaces, and brick-built outbuildings, this inviting cottage is just waiting for a discerning purchaser to fall for its charms, be it a first-time buyer, a small family or an investment seeker.
The property is approached via a stone paved driveway which is edged by two low brick-built walls and offers parking for one vehicle. A recessed and arched porch with key-stone offers shelter from the elements and gives an attractive appeal to the brick-built frontage of the property.
The inset timber effect composite door, with glazed inserts, opens to the dining room which has a large double-glazed window to the front and is further illuminated by two pendant lights. The good-sized room features a full height, brick-built, currently unused, open fire place with stone hearth, and a radiator provides supplementary warmth. Built in cupboards house the gas and electricity meters and, just off the room, a spindle staircase rises to the first floor and a separate doorway leads into the second reception room.
This cosy snug has a window to the rear and access through to the kitchen. The focal point of the room is a central chimney breast with beautiful cast iron surround and housing a dog grate for an open fire. Useful storage can be found in an under-stair’s cupboard, and there is ample space for units either side of the chimney breast.
The lovely, bijou kitchen to the rear is fitted with a range of pine edged and sage green painted base and wall units, topped with a light oak effect worktop inset with a sink unit and swan neck mixer tap beneath the window to the rear. Also inset and providing the cooking facilities is the free-standing bottle green cooker with matching overhead extractor.
An opening gives way into the single storey lean-to extension which acts as a utility room, offering space for the fridge freezer as well as plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer below the oak effect worktop. To the rear, a timber window and stable door overlook the shale gardens.
Upstairs, the spacious, open and split-level landing has a central pendant light, a loft access point, and three doors lead to the rooms off. Bedroom one is a comfortable double room with double-glazed window to the front of the property and faces towards the country pub and bowls pitch opposite, it is illuminated by a pendant lighting. There is space either side of the chimney breast for clothes storage furniture.
The bathroom has a three-piece white suite comprising a panelled bath with shower over, low-flush w.c. and traditional pedestal wash hand basin. The room is mainly wall-panelled with decorative white and pale blue tiling to splash areas and the flooring is a wood effect vinyl. There is a ceiling light, a radiator provides warmth and a built-in cupboard houses the gas central heating combination boiler and also offers storage for towels and linen.
Bedroom two has pendant lighting and a large double-glazed window to the rear benefiting from views over the garden and manicured cricket field behind. The room itself offers space for a desk and a wardrobe either side of the chimney breast and comfortably takes a single bed, but would also accommodate a double.
The shale-based rear garden is divided into two clear areas by the brick-built outbuilding situated partway down the left-hand side and which offers fantastic storage. To the near end, a private seating area provides a sheltered retreat whilst to the far end there is space to store the bins and a brick wall separates the garden from the boundary line of the cricket pitch, its immaculate green turf stretching away towards the white pavilion delivers an enviable view. For convenience, there is a gated right of way to the rear of the neighbouring properties allowing access to the roadside.
