Property Summary

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!
