Agents Note

The property has been renovated to a very high standard with attention to detail to its past history as two cottages. There is a second 'Dummy' front porched door and the exposure of many original beams together with lovely brick fireplaces and oak flooring in the sitting, dinning and snug den areas and of particular interest is that the entire exterior and interior is not only within the period character but should require little maintenance/attention for many years.
