Formally two separate cottages but now forming a superb detached L-shaped spacious cottage set over two floors. To the ground floor, reception hall giving access to the modern oak fronted range of kitchen units and dining room with access to the rear gardens, family room, ground floor wc and utility room with door to inner hallway. Off the inner hallway a superb 26' plus living room with most attractive stone fireplace. Also from inner hallway stairs to first floor landing. To the first floor master bedroom suite to include dressing room, bedroom with built-in wardrobes and en-suite bathroom. Four further bedrooms plus family bathroom and separate shower room. Outside the property benefits from gravelled driveway and turning area with ample parking leading through to the detached double garage and the beautifully maintained and stocked private, sunny rear gardens which must be viewed to be fully appreciated. Also forming part of the property there is a large room which the current owners utilised for a very successful, locally run butchers. I am also informed that there was previously granted planning permission for a self contained holiday let unit but this planning has lapsed. This area itself could be incorporated back into the main house or indeed utilised for a holiday let subject to the necessary planning consents.
