The property in the main is a picture postcard newly thatched, Grade II listed cottage with several tiled roof barns which were converted some years ago. It has beautifully presented accommodation of great character which has been the subject of a comprehensive and sympathetic programme of improvement in the years of ownership, which has resulted in a home of great style and quality. It blends period features with a more modern approach and the large sitting room is worthy of note, and this is a huge room with a woodburning stove and access into the gardens and seating area. The kitchen has been beautifully fitted with a range of units and granite work surfaces, Fired Earth tiles and also a new Dual Control electric AGA. The Kitchen has an adjoining utility room/ larder, containing many storage cupboards and an airing cupboard.
