I’ll admit it, I am completely smitten by this absolutely unique cottage as well as the lovely owner who has gone out of her way to sympathetically and carefully restore it. She has also spent lots of time researching the history of the house and has pages of fascinating archived material and photographs tracing the history back over two hundred years. I have promised her I will find the perfect buyer who will love the house as she does. Could this be you?

Full description

This handsome and historic detached stone built mill-owner's house is believed to date back to the late18th/early 19th century, originally set next to the town's stone windmill. The house has been sympathetically updated and extended by the current owner during her over thirty year occupation and features thick stone walls with deep window sills. Warmed by gas central heating, the cottage offers a blend of period charm with surprisingly light, large living spaces. The accommodation includes a cloakroom; double aspect sitting room with a gas living flame fire as the focal point; well proportioned dining room with rustic brick chimney breast; kitchen and beautifully matched breakfast room extension. A very useful utility room is linked to this area by a bright glass-roofed sun room.
The garden has been lovingly created by the current owner to create a real English country cottage space. Rear access leads to arguably the home's most unusual and impressive assets - a very large double and separate generous single garage plus a large car port. These highly sought-after and valuable buildings have power and light and brilliant flexibility in their potential use.
