The detached property offers contemporary appliances whilst retaining some period charm, and provides everyday home comforts. The property boasts two living areas: a formal living room with a wood burner and Freeview TV, as well as the snug with a second Freeview TV, and provides a peaceful retreat to relax and read, and offers a different choice of TV viewing. The spacious kitchen/dining room is great for entertaining and has a door leading onto the enclosed courtyard - a perfect sun trap!

The house stands opposite the village library and a recreational playing field with a children’s play area, ideal for kids to run and play.
