Welcome Home to the Old Cottage
A delightful Semi Detached Grade II listed Cottage. Dated early 15th century or earlier, this wonderful cottage is timber framed with a painted brick work exterior and a red tiled roof. Beautifully maintained with original features still remaining include: exposed brick work, wooden beams and chimney stacks. The delights of such an old cottage do not disappoint..
Creatively enhanced with the old meeting new, The Old Cottage has been stylishly presented and respectfully kept by the current owners giving the property a fresh modern lift yet keeping all traditional features, beautifully decorated and ready to move into. Generously sized rooms give a flow to the Cottage and for a large family, there is plenty of space for everyone to enjoy, relax and take a little time out.
It is a pleasure to stroll to your front door taking in the true beauty and age of such of property. A deceivingly spacious cottage with 5/6 bedrooms, one Jack and Jill bathroom , one downstairs WC and 3 reception rooms. Entering a spacious hall with red tiles, the staircase is to your left with a large snug/reception room on your right cleverly fitted with a glass/wooden framed wall/partician the open snug welcomes you immediately. A snug room usually being a smaller reception room, here at the cottage it is larger and one could say almost the same size as the Living room. The snug room , cosy and welcoming, the room laid to carpet with a log burner and original wooden ceiling beams. The Living room , wooden flooring throughout with an open fire again with original wooden ceiling beams, both stylish and individual in their own way. The dining room, snuggled between the Living room and Snug room with it’s own access direct to the kitchen. Cosy, quaint yet chic, this is more than just your usual standard dining room.
Loving the red brick of the archway opening up the living room and Kitchen so compliments the wooden floors and modern stylish fitted Kitchen/Breakfast room with carefully selected wall colourings, what is there not to love??? .
Ascend upstairs to the first floor
The beauty of an old staircase with exposed red brick is a room in itself, wooden beams and red chimney stack add to the charm of this open staircase. The master bedroom is to the right of the staircase, triple fitted wardrobes with a Jack and Jill bathroom gives the feel and privacy of an ensuite. You really do have your own wing of the house securing privacy and tranquility. To the left of the staircase are bedrooms 2 and 3 with a second staircase leading to the second floor. Two good sized bedrooms, bedroom 2 is a good sized double with standalone wash basin, room for a double wardrobe and chest of drawers, sash windows present giving this room the feeling of a true old cottage. Bedroom 3 is smaller in size with a window and room for a double bed.

Bedroom 6 is the smaller of all bedrooms being your typical cottage attic room.
