Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
This truly lovely home has everything and it s an absolute little gem! It cosies up to be a gorgeous home in winter with bags of character and charm yet in the summer the sun streams through the windows to create a bright and cheerful place to be. Downstairs there are two reception rooms and a spacious and very practical kitchen as well as a utility area and upstairs you ll find 3 bedrooms (one with a shower) and a charming bathroom. But it s the outside which you ll love a drive leads to a garage/workshop, there s a pretty courtyard garden and two stores and stone steps lead up to a flat roof above the garage which would make a perfect rooftop garden ideal for those lazy summer evenings when all you want is a barbeque with a view!

OWNERS COMMENTS
