It is almost as though a child could have painted this quaint cottage with roses around the front door……

All it lacks in a stream in the foreground!

This pretty looking property has recently been much improved (including new roof slates and laths, a replacement boiler, a landscaped rear garden and much re-decoration), so there really isn't much to do once you have moved your own furniture in, apart from putting your feet up and switching on the television.

If the sun is shining, you may of course be tempted to amble out to the long rear garden, sit on the patio/in the summerhouse and crack open a bottle (or two).

Another great thing about living here is the fact that it is within walking distance of local shops and amenities, as well as being within the catchment area of the highly acclaimed Bishop Heber High School.

You just hope when entering these character properties that some of the original charm still exists and this is certainly the case here. There are a wealth of exposed ceiling and wall beams, along with some of the original floorboards upstairs.

The cottage has been extended at the rear and every ounce of space has been thoughtfully used, even though the upstairs accommodation is not exactly conventional. However, it is likely that if the buyers are couples, they will probably use the third bedroom as a dressing room or study. There is an upstairs bathroom with a white suite and downstairs, the comfortable sitting room has lots of charm, including exposed beams and a fireplace with an open grate.

Beyond this, the kitchen feels particularly rustic with its solid wood work tops and range-style cooker.

From here, there is a useful utility room and outside, at the rear, the large aforementioned garden is enclosed for the safety of children and pets.

It has been landscaped and has a timber summerhouse at the far end, complete with covered area and providing an idyllic place in which to relax, away from the stresses of life!
