Superb opportunity to purchase a delightful cottage located in a peaceful semi-rural location. This semi-detached property, beautifully presented in neutral tones, will appeal to first time buyers, those wishing to down size, retirees and young families. It also offers excellent potential as a holiday home or buy to let investment. Formerly the village school house and tastefully extended in the 1970`s, the original stone built dwelling dates from circa 1850. Many original features have been retained and enhanced, such as traditional sash windows set into deep sills and solid panel shutters. There is partial double glazing and oil fired central heating throughout. Set on a secluded plot surrounded by mature forest, viewing of this immaculately presented property is highly recommended.
The cottage is accessed via a door to the rear which opens into a substantial reception area with lovely views out to the garden. Bright and airy, the spacious lounge boasts a multi fuel stove, set within the original Caithness stone fireplace and hearth. The former front entrance has been sympathetically transformed into a cosy nook just off the lounge, with a feature arch window and exposed stone walls. Recently fitted, the modern kitchen overlooks the rear and benefits from a good range of base and wall units, an integral electric oven and ceramic hob. The kitchen offers plenty of space for dining, a door gives access to the garden and log store. Bedroom one is of a very generous size, enjoying a high level of natural light from two sash windows facing the front. Bedroom two has a window to the side elevation and would make an ideal guest or child`s room. There is ample space for free standing storage in both bedrooms. Completing the accommodation is a beautiful contemporary bathroom with a mains powered rainfall shower over the bath.
The fully enclosed rear garden has a secluded feel, set against a scenic forest back drop. A patio area, perfect for outdoor entertaining, is nestled among mature trees and shrubs, and easy to maintain raised beds. The private driveway, accessed via a gate at the bottom of the garden, provides parking for several vehicles. There is second side gate giving access to the main entrance. Useful outdoor storage is provided by way of a timber out building with a low level car port.
Please note that some structural movement has been noted in the property. An engineers structural survey is available on request, in addition to the home report.
