An Elizabethan Grade II listed mid terrace thatched cottage - a pure delight if you are looking for that quintessential home. Circa 1580 and the subject of a total restoration in 2012. A replica of a Crimean War field gun sits on the site of the original, presented to the village at the end of the first world war. Embellished in character throughout to provide comfortable accommodation over three floors. The front door opens into a spacious sitting room with inglenook fireplace taking pride of place, rear passage and bathroom. Stairs lead down to kitchen (basement) and turned stairs rise to first floor to comprise spacious bedroom with walk-in wardrobe. This room was split into two rooms when our client purchased the property and can be put back to two rooms if desired.
Brick pathway leads past the neighbouring property with steps up to front door. Door to basement and area of lawn with field gun sitting on it's original plinth.
