4 The Square is a particularly attractive 3 bedroom cottage, forming part of an historic Grade II listed building arranged around a central grass quadrangle. The Square is believed to date from the 18th Century, but was converted in the mid 1970's with number 4 being located within the corner and with private and secluded gardens to the rear. The property also benefits from 3 allocated parking spaces, 2 of which are under cover.
From the pathway to the front, the property is approached by a front door leading straight in to the kitchen/dining room. This is a lovely square room with a comprehensive range of units comprising polished oak worktops with cream units and a butler sink, together with a range cooker and fitted dishwasher. There are matching wall cupboards, secondary glazing and a fine exposed natural timber beam. From this room, there is a door concealing a under stair cloakroom, whilst stairs lead to the main accommodation. On the first floor, there is a delightful double aspect sitting room with feature fireplace and wood burner and with a door to the rear, connecting the landscaped garden. Off the sitting room, a door leads to a 'landing' with cupboard and airing cupboard and doors leading to the bedrooms and bathroom. The three bedrooms are all double and feature full height windows with shutters, secondary glazing and white painted beams, whilst the bathroom is fitted with 'Roca' sanitary ware.
The property is presented in excellent decorative order and the current owner has added much style and character to the property.
