Property summary

Fenn Wright are delighted to present to the market this extremely rare 2 bedroom semi-detached cottage, believed to date back to the early 1800s in this sought after village location. The property sits on a good size plot with a large unoverlooked garden to the rear backing on to farmland and is nicely tucked away off of a main road. This well presented home offers ample accommodation throughout to include 17ft lounge, 11ft dining room, 14ft kitchen and with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. We advise an early internal inspection to avoid disappointment as we believe this property will not be available for long.
