This beautiful cottage dates back to the 1450's and is one of the oldest houses on the High Street. It was originally thought to be part of a Medieval Hall and the living room was the fireplace. The loft conversion was done in the 1700's and the rear extension in Victorian times. There are many original features including witches crosses, leaded light windows, numbered beams (so you can work out how the house was constructed) and an inglenook fireplace.
The cottage is entered through an enclosed porch providing a handy storage area for coats and shoes. The spacious living room is split into two areas - the main area has an abundance of character including original beams to the ceiling and walls, feature radiators, a fabulous inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove, window to the side and a picture above thought to date back about 100 years. A slightly raised area currently provides a playroom with a decorative half wall to separate it from the main living room. There is a door to an outdoor courtyard area, big enough for a small table and a couple of chairs. The kitchen/dining room is located to the rear of the house and has a range of wall and base units with a double Butler style sink, an integrated double oven and 5 ring hob, space for fridge/freezer, washing machine and slimline dishwasher. There is space for a large dining table and a stable door to the rear courtyard garden.
Upstairs, the landing features a large original curved beam, a window to the side and a skylight window along with a storage cupboard. All three bedrooms on this floor feature beams and leaded light windows. The two double bedrooms have built in cupboards, and the single room has a wash hand basin and a shuttered window. The bathroom includes a tiled shower cubicle, bath, wash hand basin, w.c., heated towel rail, tiled floor with under floor heating and shuttered window.
Stairs from the landing lead to the 1700 loft conversion with a part vaulted beamed ceiling with a Velux style window, eaves storage and a large storage cupboard (with lapsed planning to convert to an en-suite bathroom).
Outside, to the rear of the cottage is a courtyard style garden, paved and with raised flower beds. There is a brick built loggia, ideal as an outdoor dining area open to one side and covered with a roof, with a storage area to the side. To the front of the property is a pretty cottage style garden peppered with an array of shrubs and flowers.
