This is a very rare opportunity to acquire a detached cottage with potential for extension (see agent’s note) in a lovely central village setting standing within a particularly generous plot.

The property retains a number of original features including exposed beams and inglenook fireplaces. There is a generous reception hall, with under stairs storage cupboard, which leads to a sitting room with an impressive inglenook fireplace (sealed and not in use) and dual aspects over the village green and garden. On the opposite side of the hall is the dining room with smaller inglenook (sealed and not in use), recessed book shelves to one side and dual aspects to the front and back gardens.

The kitchen, which has been recently re-fitted has a range of base units with work surface over incorporating a sink unit with part tiling to walls, integrated appliances include a freezer, fridge, washing machine and Bosch oven with ceramic hob. Adjacent to the kitchen is the recently re-fitted cloakroom with dado panelling and period style W.C. and hand basin. In addition, there is a ground floor bathroom, which again has been recently re-fitted pedestal hand basin, W.C., and panel enclosed bath with shower over and tile wall around.

On the first floor, the landing leads to the two double bedrooms, both enjoying views of the gardens, one housing the airing cupboard incorporating lagged hot water cylinder and fitted linen shelving and other has a box room/study/dressing room off, with low level window.

The established gardens are a very special feature and extend in all to approximately 0.2 acre. Protected by a historic wall, the gardens are predominantly laid to lawn, with a range of mature shrubs and perennials. There is vehicular access via double timber gates that lead to an off-road parking area, single garage and timber shed.

The sellers have had plans drawn up for a substantial extension, which would provide for a total of 4-5 bedrooms, 2 bath/shower rooms and a large kitchen/living room. Copies of the plans are available from the agents.

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.
