Originally named Rosemount Cottages this terrace of four cottages were built c.1830 for local quarrymen. This particular cottage retains many period features throughout and provides a 150' south facing garden with a double garage and external home office.
You enter the property into the hallway with stripped wooden floor which provides access to the sitting room, dining room and cellar. A nice feature to the hallway is it affords a view through the house into the garden upon arrival. The sitting room is a spacious room with feature log burner fireplace with cupboards and shelves to the alcoves, sash window to the front aspect, stairs to the first floor and a door leading to the dining room. The dining room makes a great entertaining space with stripped wooden floor, feature fireplace, glazed double doors opening out on to the garden and access to the kitchen. The recently fitted kitchen is a galley style with new wall and floor units with worktop, inset sink drainer, gas hob and electric oven with extractor and integrated dish washer. Through the kitchen you enter a small utility area with space and plumbing for washing machine and dryer and fridge/freezer. To the rear you find a bathroom with bath, shower overhead, washbasin and WC.
Stairs lead from the sitting room up to the first floor landing which divides to lead you to bedroom two or to bedrooms one and three. Bedroom one is a very spacious room with feature fireplace and full length wardrobes to the alcove, stripped wooden floor and sash window to the front aspect. Bedroom two is a good size double with feature fireplace, stripped wooden floor, full length wardrobes to one wall and sash window to the rear aspect. Bedroom three is a single room or could be utilised as a study with sash window to the front aspect and exposed Bath stone wall. It also has a licence to be used as a therapy room.
The cellar room is accessed via stairs from the hallway. It is a very good size room that could be used as additional accommodation or storage. The ceiling height is around 7' and the room retains its original fireplace and houses a newly installed Veissmann boiler and Unicyl thermal hot water cylinder.
The south facing rear garden extends to 150' in length. It provides a nice secluded stone chipped seating area to the rear of the property with wood store and small storage shed. Further down is laid to lawn with established beds, hedge, shrubs and small trees. A stone path leads to the rear of the garden where you find a long stone chipped driveway and to the rear a stone built outhouse with tiled pitch roof which has been converted to a home office. This office is boarded, insulated and has internet and power to it. Next to the rear of the garden is the stone built detached double garage which is accessed via a lane from North Road. The garage has an electric door and provides parking for two vehicles, power and light.
The house has recently been redecorated throughout. New fittings, fixtures and appliances have been installed in both the kitchen and bathroom. All electrics have been replaced throughout. Previously listed building consent was obtained to further extend full width at the rear of the house which could provide a more open plan kitchen diner. This consent has now lapsed.
