A light and characterful cottage situated conveniently in the centre of town towards the end of Broad Street with benefits including off-road parking and a charming courtyard garden. The property has recently been renovated, with the focus being to open up the ground floor to create a light and airy open-plan living space.
Further benefits include a new Worcester Bosch boiler (with 5 year warranty) and an elegantly designed new kitchen. A new cottage style front door and a mix of leaded light effect and plain glass cottage bar double glazed windows are being fitted in October, in line with the conservation department’s guidelines; both come with ten year guarantees.
An important consideration for any potential purchaser is the recent Planning Permission that has been granted for a first floor extension, which would provide a second bedroom (Planning Ref: 18/00903/HOU. A builder’s quote is available upon request.
The cottage is approached from The Soke via the driveway, from where a gate opens to the garden. The front door opens to the ground floor, which has been transformed, with the removal of walls, into a stunning open-plan living space. With windows on three sides, the ground floor is light and airy and offers flexibility on how it is utilised. Throughout the ground floor, wooden flooring has been used.
The new kitchen features recessed downlights, a range of Shaker-style storage cupboards, with solid wood worktops above, and a fitted Shaker-style kitchen dresser.
On the first floor, doors from the landing open to the double bedroom and bathroom.
Outside, there is a pretty courtyard garden, with a seating area to the front of the property.
