Reported to have been built around 1700, Virginia Cottage is a charming property constructed of red weathered brick under a thatched roof. The property is entered via a porched entrance into the sitting room which features an exposed beam. Off the sitting room is a study and to the left a dining room. The kitchen has a range of wall and base units, plumbing for a washing machine and an integral gas hob and electric oven. There is a downstairs WC off the kitchen and rear access to the garden. Upstairs are two bedrooms and a family bathroom. The house requires some updating and renovation.
Gardens and grounds
The property is approached either from the front or from the driveway on the side of the property into the garden. The garden is mainly laid to lawn and has stone steps leading to a garden terrace at the rear of the property. A paved path also leads from here via a side access to the front of the property. There is a very useful garden store/workshop.
