INTRODUCTION Centrally located yet in a quiet position, this traditional end terraced cottage is steeped in history and has wonderful character and charm throughout. Dating back to the 1700s, the property has featured in local history books and through various incarnations over the years is now a lovely family home. The lounge has an impressive open fireplace and there is an adjoining formal dining room. A breakfast room with kitchen is at the rear and a sun room has been added looking over the garden. At first floor level are three bedrooms, a bathroom and generous landing space. Externally the property comes into its own - there is an award winning garden with lawn and patio, a good sized garage with electric door plus a parking space. Rarely do character properties with outside space come onto the market and a viewing is recommended.
