High Street,


2 bed House - end terrace

Offering spacious accommodation this outstanding end terraced cottage must be seen to be believed. It was formerly 2 back to back cottages dating back to around 1845 which were combined to make a single larger dwelling some time ago. Our clients have more recently carried out a series of improvements to update the property whilst retaining its original charm. Internally it comprises: lounge, dining kitchen, landing, 2 double bedrooms, contemporary shower wet room and wc, attic room and 2 cellars. It has uPVC double glazed windows, gas central heating and quality fittings throughout. Externally there is a small garden to the front and a further sitting area / parking to the rear. It enjoys a pleasant position within this elevated village location which enjoys excellent links for commuters via the M62 motorway.
