From the kerbside, our Vendor's pretty country cottage depicts a more modest look with the back of the home facing onto the roadside and front facing into a garden that offers almost complete privacy. We believe this configuration will only serve to meet or even surpass the discerning buyer's expectations as soon as they venture into the outside areas.
A triple-aspect entrance porch is ideal to hang coats, store footwear and could be used as a bedding area for a family pet, a cosier yet well-proportioned living room has dual aspects to allow in plenty of natural light and is further complemented by the cast iron wood-burner that sits as the focal point.
A neat kitchen/diner is ideal for entertaining guests and links into a laundry room for the everyday practical needs. Off the laundry room is a rear porch that can also be accessed from a paved courtyard, and a three-piece bathroom suite serves two good-sized double bedrooms that enjoy sunnier dual aspects, to complete the accommodation.
Outside, the pretty cottage-style garden enjoys a Southerly facing aspect and is interspersed with flowering plants, shrubs and trees that shield it from the natural elements. At the rear, is a paved courtyard with secondary access into the cottage and pedestrian access out onto the public highway, while at the side is a wide gated driveway that allows tandem off-road parking for two to three vehicles.
