With over 150 years of history, this quaint detached two-storey home exudes a welcoming atmosphere from the moment you step into its light-filled entrance hall.

The downstairs benefits from two large living rooms. Currently used as a living room/dining room the first spacious area features a large front window that looks out onto the front of the property. This generously sized area comfortably accommodates plenty of seating and furniture, serving as the heart of the home. An open fireplace adds a cosy touch to the ambiance.

Across the hallway, a second large sitting room continues the theme with its own open fire and front-facing window. This tastefully decorated room then leads onto what is currently used as a storeroom with it’s own convenient front door. This room could be used for a variety of purposes from storeroom to studio to home office, adding to the versatility of the property.

Outside, the property boasts a large, private, and enclosed rear garden. You enter from the house onto a large stone gravel area which is ideal for outdoor dining and entertainment. A substantial grass lawn offers plenty of space for children to play, while mature shrubs, bushes, trees, and flowers enhance the garden’s appeal.
