Outside And Location

There is a delightful generous mature garden packed with a wealth of plants providing all year round colour. This space is secluded and of a sunny aspect. Exploring through you will see attractive features including a listed original brick built shed which provides handy storage. Beyond the garden the 10 cottages in the row have direct access to a large community green space extending to about 1 acre.

The property is approached with the row of cottages lines along a neighbouring bank and open fields with countryside walks. The road has parking on an ad-hoc basis in front of the property. A shared path leads behind the brick built front to reveal the rendered rear and entrance porch.

The property is traditionally constructed, with a brick plinth and colour-washed rendered wall to the rear, the property has a ridged wheat reed thatched roof with a tall brick chimney. The ridge and the front face of the roof were re-thatched in 2022. The cottage is connected to mains electricity and water, and has septic tank drainage which we are advised is shared between this property and one other.
