This attractive typically symmetrical Victorian cottage is within easy reach of the extensive range of village amenities and yet is quietly tucked away from the High Street away from the main traffic thoroughfare.

An entrance lobby leads to a charming sitting room with a fireplace, built in cupboards and exposed timber floor. The music room/main reception area also offers a traditional fireplace and wooden boards.

There is a useful downstairs shower room presented in a period style and a comprehensively fitted kitchen with granite worktops, a rangemaster oven, butler’s sink and integrated dishwasher all set off by a tiled floor.

The spacious family room is of particular note, naturally light and airy from roof lights and windows to three sides overlooking the pretty cottage garden.

Upstairs there are five bedrooms (the smallest inter-connecting with two others and would be ideal as a study). Two have cupboards and wardrobes and one a continuation of the timber floorboards.

The family bathroom offers a classic white Victorian style suite complimented by chequered tiling.

Outside: a small front garden behind a low wall, the majority of the outside space is at the side and rear of the cottage entered by double wooden gates for security and bordered by a tall wall. A beautifully presented cottage style garden with lawn, border beds and a brick paved patio/sitting area. Garden shed.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
