About This Property

A characterful three bedroom link detached cottage in the heart of the village with a private walled garden and parking. Vendor suited onwards!

Laurel Cottage is believed to of been built in the 1850’s of Forrest Marble stone elevation under a slate tiled roof. In recent years the property has been sympathetically extended, creating a wealth of ground floor living accommodation. The accommodation is set over two floors and comprises of a spacious entrance hall with a most useful WC and office/utility space. From the entrance hall you will find that the rooms are well connected with a great sense of space. The property is deceptively spacious and internal viewing is highly recommended.
The kitchen is light and airy with dual aspect windows. The kitchen is practical, having plentiful fitted base and wall units with integral fridge and dish washer with work surface over the top. The dining room and the lounge both have an attractive wooden floor throughout with charming window seat in each room. Character continues throughout the cottage with the lounge centring on a stone built fire place with a multi fuel burner being the focal point.
The ground floor also benefits from the additions of a sun room and boot room – both of which have doors leading out into the garden.
Upstairs you find three bedrooms which comprise one single and two doubles, the master bedroom benefitting from a delightful village outlook. All of the bedrooms are served by the recently refitted shower room with a walk in shower, wc, basin and most useful airing cupboard. Moreover, on the landing there is an atrium which opens from the dining room to upstairs.

Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with many walks to be had from the village itself while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling.
