Rookery Cottage is a particularly successful conversion which offers generously proportioned accommodation, all at ground floor level, making it a great proposition for those with limited mobility.
The property offers comfortable accommodation which is centred around the fabulous openplan living space, currently zoned into dining, sitting and study areas. Part of this large space has previously been a third bedroom which could be reinstated again if required. The two bedrooms are good sized doubles with use of a beautifully presented shower room with walk-in shower cubicle. Completing the accommodation is a comprehensively fitted kitchen with integrated appliances and space for a table and chairs.
There are a good range of cupboards providing excellent storage space and scope for a third bedroom to be reinstated within the living space should it be required.
