This double fronted period property was built circa 1795-1815 and sits in a short row of cottages formerly known as Brunswick Place. The current owner has recently refurbished throughout and it is now immaculately presented whilst retaining many period features.
You approach the cottage through gated wrought iron plain spike rails on dwarf stone walls down steps to a sunken courtyard area to the front. Entering the property through the gabled stone porch you arrive in the open hallway which leads to the lounge, dining room, rear conservatory and stairs to the first floor.
You immediately notice how this charming cottage has retained many of its original period features with recessed glazing bar sashes and open feature fire places throughout. The relaxing lounge features one such fireplace with stone hearth and ornate wooden surround and mantle with log burning stove. With sash windows to front aspect and glazed wooden framed doors opening out into the conservatory. On in to the dining room and another feature fireplace with sash windows to front and rear aspect making this a very light room. Through into the galley style kitchen, with wooden frame glazed door to rear aspect, you then proceed further into the more recently added annex area. This additional annex provides a downstairs wc and shower room which serves both the house and adjoining bedroom. Future owners may wish to utilise this space as a separate annex, as it has its own outside access or use as a study or children's area of the house.
As you climb the wrought iron balustrade and railed stairs you find access from the small landing to two large bedrooms and the bathroom. Bedroom one provides dual aspect to front and rear aspects through sash windows and comes with feature fireplace and a useful washbasin. Bedroom two is again a large double with dual aspect sash windows to front and rear and with feature fireplace, it also provides access to a further dressing room. This room provides sash window to rear aspect and could be used as a bedroom or as is currently as a dressing room with built-in wardrobes. The bathroom may be small but the essence here is cosy as you could lie back in the bath and take in the views across the rear garden, rooftops and over to the Midford valley. This view is also afforded to the two double bedrooms and will be a real delight as it is southerly facing and far reaching.
Outside the south westerly facing garden is of a good size and extending to around 100ft. There is a stone paved patio area whilst the remaining garden is laid with established beds, shrubs and small fruit trees. There is a stone wall to the rear garden where you will also find a wooden built summer house and vegetable plot.
