The original farmhouse has been sub-divided into two dwellings, probably in the 1950's. The property is believed to be of timber framed construction, subsequently clad with pretty mellow stone elevations with brick quoins and tile hanging to the upper elevations under clay tiled roofs. The sitting room and dining room have metal casement windows with an original brick open fireplace with a brick hearth in the sitting room, now fitted with an open gas log-effect fire. There are some exposed beams in the sitting room and kitchen. The dual aspect dining room is of good size with a sealed balanced-flue gas fire in the hearth. The kitchen is fitted with matching cupboards, off which is a utility room with a fridge, freezer, electric meter cupboard, dresser and washing machine. A door leads to the cellar (restricted head height) with a gas meter and an automatic electric pump. On the first floor the master bedroom has exposed beams to one wall, an original brick fireplace and a deep walk-in cupboard. Bedroom 2 is a double with exposed beams to one wall and is dual aspect. Bedroom 3 is a single. There is a separate WC and separate shower room with wash hand basin. The Garden The attractive cottage garden lies mainly to the south and east of the house with a path surrounding the house and a terrace. The garden is laid to lawns with mature shrub and flower borders; it is totally private, enclosed with walls, hedging and trees. A timber-clad barn has power and lighting and a tumble dryer. An adjacent wooden shed and the garage also have power and lighting. An old stone wall runs along the western boundary of the main garden, with a pedestrian gate leading to a single garage, with surrounding lawn, shrubs and parking for other cars, enclosed on three sides by hedging and low wooden paling fencing. An old stone wall runs along the northern boundary on School Lane with a pedestrian gate which leads to a cobbled path and the front and rear gardens.
