THE PROPERTY West View is a wonderful period property believed to date back to the 17th century having been renovated in the 20th century, with original character features such as exposed ceiling and wall timbers and inglenook and bressumer beamed fireplaces. The property is timber framed and plastered principally under a clay tiled roof and is thought to have been extended to the rear with the excellent garden room and dormer windows, that all enhance the enjoyment of the exceptional countryside views to the rear, in around the 1970's prior to the listing. The cottage has been very well maintained and benefits from oil fired radiator central heating. The front door leads in off the wide village verge to the entrance reception room, in the centre of the cottage, which displays a wonderful old iron range in the inglenook fireplace, a glazed door out to the rear garden and leads into the sitting room and benefits from windows to the front, side and rear and features a working fireplace with bressumer beam above.

This room is light and airy whilst still displaying exposed wall and ceiling timbers with an oil fired boiler set into the former open fireplace. An archway opening leads through to the garden room, giving outstanding views of the rear garden and stunning countryside views beyond. There is also a shower/cloakroom. On the first floor there are two very comfortable semi-vaulted double bedrooms, both having built-in bedroom furniture comprising wardrobes, cupboards and drawers with windows to the side and rear. There is a third single bedroom and a family bathroom with bath, wc and wash hand basin. Overall West View is considered a very comfortable detached cottage superbly set in this wonderful location.
