This charming cottage is offered to the market in very good decorative order throughout, having been the subject of a thorough updating and improvement programme by the current owners. The property is thought to date back several hundred years and is more than likely to have originally been two cottages that were later combined; indeed there are still twin turning staircases to the first floor. In addition, there are a host of character features on display, including inglenook fireplaces in both the sitting room and kitchen, each with wood burning stoves; exposed beams; handmade internal doors and door furniture; and a fireplace with grate in the main bedroom.
The accommodation comprises: entrance from the street into the sitting room. A comfortable room with an inglenook fireplace, storage cupboards to either side and a door to one of the turning staircases to the first floor. Window to front aspect with a seat. From here, a door leads into the kitchen/dining room. A very impressive room, with solid wood flooring, an inglenook fireplace, a second fireplace – currently providing a neat home for the owners’ cooker, a door leading to the second set of turning stairs to the first floor, built in cupboards and a free standing solid wood unit with recessed Belfast style sink. Space and plumbing is provided for a washing machine and dishwasher. This room further benefits from windows to front and rear aspects.
Off the kitchen is a rear lobby, providing plenty of space for coats and boots etc. There are two windows to the rear, a door to the garden, a mezzanine level above, as well as a door leading to the shower-room. This has been refitted with a double size cubicle with large diameter shower head and tiled surround. There is also a counter top wash hand basin and low level w/c.
On the first floor are two bedrooms, each with their own access from the ground floor, as well as a Jack and Jill w/c. The master bedroom is of a good size and features exposed beams, a fireplace, two windows to the front aspect and a free standing, slipper style bath. The second bedroom is of single size and has a built in cupboard, as well as a window to the front aspect.
Outside, and a particular feature, is the rear garden. There is a paved patio seating area adjacent to the rear of the cottage, with a brick built store. Steps lead up to the main area of garden, which is laid to lawn. There are various decorative flower beds, some of which are raised. At the rear of the garden is a glazed timber store and pedestrian gate leading out onto St Andrews Road. The garden is enclosed by timber fencing and stone walling.
We understand there is an easement in place allowing (with notice) a neighbouring property owner access to carry out maintenance to the rear of their garage, via a timber gate.
