A charming link-detached character property with southerly facing garden and off-road parking in this popular village DESCRIPTION Park Cottage is believed to have originally been a pair of 18th Century flintstone cottages, combined into one and extended in the middle of the twentieth century to provide a well balanced three bedroom house. The house is not listed despite having an abundance of character including feature fireplaces (the vendors currently only used one in the sitting room, which houses a woodburning stove), multi-pane casement windows and two bay windows in the sitting room, drop latch doors and wooden floorboards to much of the first floor. The house benefits from secondary glazing, off-road parking to the side of the house and a lovely, secluded cottage garden to the rear, which is primarily South-East facing. There is a former garage building with concrete base, currently used as a garden store. There is also a greenhouse in the garden. The house is barely attached via a cupboard on the first floor to its neighbouring former stable building (now another house) on the rear corner. The same first floor cupboard technically has a flying freehold over the neighbour's side access path. Taller parties should note, the ceiling height in the kitchen of this property is just over 6'. FEATURES - Entrance Porch/Lobby with access to the two reception rooms. - Triple aspect Dining Room with parquet wood flooring and feature fireplace. - Double ended Sitting Room with two bay windows to the front and fireplaces at each end, including one housing a woodburning stove. - Double aspect Kitchen overlooking the garden, fitted with base units with oak doors and wooden worktops, stainless steel sink and drainer, tiled splashbacks, undermount oven, 4 ring gas hob, integrated fridge and dishwasher. Quarry tiled floor. - Laundry cupboard with space for a washing machine and housing the boiler. - Ground floor Cloakroom. - Cellar with ample head room and space for freezer(s)/storage. - Three double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes/storage cupboards. - Large walk-in cupboard adjacent to the largest bedroom. - Bathroom fitted with a panelled bath with shower attachment/screen. - The rear garden provides a good degree of privacy with areas to sit and enjoy the various flowers and shrubs and ornamental pond.
