An extended and extensively refurbished semi detached cottage set on a country lane * Cranbrook School catchment area * Windy Ridge is a delightful unlisted semi-detached period cottage recently renovated and sympathetically extended to provide spacious accommodation. The cottage retains a number of original character features including exposed brickwork, wood panelling, pretty ducks nest fireplace and stripped pine doors.

The fitted kitchen incorporates a smart range of neutrally toned fitted cabinets with a roof lantern above taking advantage of high levels of natural light. Quality integral appliances include an electric oven, halogen hob and dishwasher. The bright and airy adjacent living/dining room is housed within the new extension.

The family bathroom and en suite both comprise modern white suites with contemporary fittings and complementary tiling. Two staircases lead to the 2nd floor.

At the rear, there is a stone paved terrace and a good area of level lawn and a fair sized timber outbuilding incorporating garden and log stores.
