PROPERTY INSIGHT
Ensum Brown are delighted to offer for sale this charming semi-detached Victorian cottage that perfectly combines period features and modern contemporary finishing and having been completed to a superb standard by the current owners. The cottage is centrally located within the village, close to amenities, but still in a quiet position in this conservation area and with stunning open countryside just moments away. There's so much to tell you about this highly sought-after village, so do read our location description.

Approaching the property, you won't find many homes with better curb appeal than this and the property won't disappoint when you step inside. Presented with neutral décor this is a home where you can move straight in with no expense needed. The entrance hall has a built-in cupboard for coats and under stairs storage and has wooden flooring, which continues throughout the ground floor accommodation. To the front you have a lounge with period open fire and sash bay windows making the room feel very light and airy. To the rear, the property has been adapted to offer an open plan kitchen dining room that overlooks and gives access to the rear garden.

The dining area has a feature fireplace with wood burning stove, perfect for those cold winter evenings. The kitchen is nicely completed with solid wood work surfaces, a ceramic sink and with feature inset ceiling spotlights. You have space for a double oven and hob with a chrome extractor hood over. You have several built-in storage cupboards in both the dining and kitchen area and those in the kitchen cleverly hide away a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The open plan space makes this a great space to spend time as a family and socialise with friends.

Going to the first floor, you have three well-proportioned bedrooms and certainly no box room. If you don't need three bedrooms, then like the current owners, you can use one as a home office and what a great place to work with the countryside views to the rear. The main two bedrooms both have period feature fireplaces, and all the bedrooms offer ample space for wardrobes and storage. The bathroom once again combines a period and contemporary feel, with a bath with shower over, low level w.c. and vanity unit with wash hand basin. Historically, but expired, there has been planning granted for a full loft conversion, so you would benefit from this then getting fresh permission shouldn't prove an issue.

Outside this cottage has a delightful part flint walled garden and is mainly laid to lawn. You have patio areas at both ends of the garden to benefit from the sun at different times of the day, you will also find a brick-built storage shed to the rear and a side access gate giving access to the front.

Call Ensum Brown today to arrange your private viewing appointment. Don't wait too long, we don't expect this cottage to be available for long!
