We feel truly honoured to have been chosen by our sellers to market this much loved home which has been in the family for over 50 years.  Whilst the house undoubtedly needs complete modernisation at this point, it still feels utterly welcoming when you walk in the door – a really happy home!  We’ve promised the family we will find the perfect buyer who will love the house as much as they have.  Could that be you?

Full description

This pretty detached cottage sits in a tucked-away position with beautiful, sunny gardens to the rear. The home requires general modernisation (having been much-loved by the previous owner for nearly 50 years) but offers exciting potential for any new owner. The gas centrally heated and majority UPVC double glazed accommodation comprises front-facing and well proportioned lounge, separate dining room and kitchen to the rear which has been extended into the former outhouses. A lean-to side porch on the side of the kitchen leads into the garden. On the first floor are two attractive double bedrooms with one having a walk-through to the good sized bathroom. The cottage has an area of parking to the front and wide side access to the pretty rear garden. Here, areas of level lawn are interspersed with mature shrubs and trees with a patio, greenhouse and air raid shelter. With its attractive yet convenient positioning and wonderful scope for someone to put their own mark on the house, this is a great opportunity for a lucky buyer.
