1 Churchyard Cottages is a characterful Grade II listed cottage believed to have origins dating from the late 16th century, having formed part of a farmhouse which was later divided into separate dwellings. The frontal additions to the property were added at later dates and the exterior walls of the lower storey were rebuilt in brickwork in the early 19th century. The house features a wealth of period features including exposed timbers throughout much of the property. Externally the property presents a combination of brick and tile-hung elevations under a clay tiled roof.
Main features include:
Entrance hall to the dining room with exposed timbers and doors to the kitchen and sitting room.
Cottage style kitchen with wooden work surfaces, range of units and tiled floor. Space for Neff oven and induction hob, space for Bosch fridge.
Separate utility room with WC and space for Bosch dishwasher and Samsung washer/dryer.
Dual-aspect sitting room with Inglenook fireplace and outlook towards the church and rear garden. Door to garden.
Generous master bedroom with built-in wardrobes and attractive views over the surrounding countryside.
Double guest bedroom and family bathroom with roll-top bath and shower over.
