Property Details

To the first floor are three bedrooms, one of which has a useful dressing room off and there is a house bathroom. The property is now in need of some modernisation but has been well cared for over the years with the addition of partial double glazing whilst retaining plenty of character ready for a new buyer to place their own stamp on and make this an idyllic cottage home.
