This very pretty semi-detached property was built we understand around 1800 with later additions and is constructed of white washed rendered elevations over brick and stone and includes a number of period features including beams and thumb latch doors. The property would benefit from some updating but offers generous sized accommodation and well proportioned rooms. The sitting room is double aspect with a pretty bay window to the front and a tiled hearth and mantle. The hallway includes some understairs storage and leads off into the dining room which has an open fire. To the rear of the property is a ground floor shower/utility room with plumbing for a washing machine and a passage leading to the rear door and access to the outside. The kitchen is a good size with a full range of wall and base units and a gas fired Aga. There is an integrated electric oven, gas hob and fridge. Upstairs are two bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, some eaves storage on the landing and a family bathroom.

The property is situated in a slightly elevated position and is reached up a few steps from the village road. There is a front garden and a path leading around to the side. Here, and to the rear of the property for ease of maintenance, are areas of gravel and paved paths. There is a charming thatched out building and a generous sized L shaped garage. A gravelled drive way leads to a shared lane from the village road.
