Description

This charming and characterful cottage is thought to be around 200 years old. Once one of many cottages that surrounded the towns old forge. There are many interesting features within the property giving it a warm and homely feel that you can only get with properties of this age and type.

The property is constructed with solid walls of stone and rubble typical of the era finished with painted render below a pitched slate roof, and benefits from the addition of double glazing to the windows in the front elevation. Accommodation comprises of a living room and kitchen to the ground floor with two double bedrooms and the bathroom to the first floor. Outside a path leads from a gate to the side of the property to a sheltered courtyard garden area at the rear where there is also a bin storage shed.

This property offers a great opportunity for first time buyers, investors or downsizers, and is unlikely to be on the market for long. Early viewing is recommended.

Accommodation

The wooden front door leads from the pavement into the living room. This is a spacious room with a lovely feel to it and many period features, such as the original floor boards that have been sanded and varnished, and the exposed stone chimney breast with an open grate. A double glazed sash window with Georgian bars brings light from the front. Between the chimney breast and inner wall are some large display shelves, and on the other side of the chimney is space for a TV unit. At the end of the room the floor level steps up to meet the stairs and beyond these is the kitchen. A range of grey fronted shaker style units are fitted to two sides above and below the solid wooden work surfaces with an inset stainless steel sink and drainer. There is space for a free standing cooker and space and plumbing for a under counter washing machine. The vinyl flooring has just been replaced with a grey wood effect finish. There is a storage area in the space created below the stairs that could house a freestanding fridge, although this is currently elsewhere in the kitchen. There is also space for a dining table against the wall where the current owners have their dresser. A door from the kitchen leads to the covered passage at the side of the property which in turn leads to the courtyard garden.

Upstairs the main bedroom is to the front of the property with a double glazed sash window to match the lounge. With generous proportions there is plenty of space for a large bed and other furniture. A cupboard with hanging rail is built in in the space over the stairs. The doors upstairs are all plank and ledge with latches in keeping with the era of the property. Bedroom two is a double bedroom currently in us as a home office with a window to the rear. The bathroom has a white suite with chrome fittings with a shower over the bath, wash basin and WC. There is a useful open storage cupboard at the end of the bath with a further cupboard housing the boiler. A window to the rear provides light and ventilation.

Outside

A gate to the side of the property at the front opens to a covered cobbled passage and gravelled shared pathway leading to the rear and continuing on to the courtyard garden space, also accessed by the back door from the kitchen. To one side of the path is a stone wall with a raised planted flower border, with a neighbouring property to the other side behind a wall and wooden fence. The sheltered courtyard garden is enclosed by walling to three sides with a low metal fence to the fourth side with a Wisteria trained over one of the walls. Laid to gravel there is plenty of space for garden seating, and the current owners have a fire pit to the centre with a variety of planters to the sides. A stone water feature provides a relaxing sound track whilst you enjoy the sunnier days. There is also a useful shed adjacent to the bin store area. The gravelled path to the garden falls within the properties boundary and ownership, with the neighbouring properties to the rear having a right of access across the path to the street.
