A CHARMING Grade II listed CHARACTER COTTAGE with GARDENS and PARKING close to the middle of this popular village.
Glyn Gift Cottage is a charming period cottage believed to have been originally built in the late C17 or early C18 with later alterations. It is built of brick and stone elevations under a thatched roof. The front door opens into an entrance hall with staircase to first floor and door to sitting room. This is a dual aspect room with large fireplace with wood burning stove and exposed beams. The kitchen is also dual aspect, has a range of units and oil fired Rayburn (for central heating and hot water). Beyond the kitchen is a utility room with external doors to both the front and rear and a cloakroom. Steps lead up to another large room which has been used as a guest/fourth bedroom and gives further flexibility. On the first floor the master bedroom runs the depth of the cottage and there are two further bedrooms and a bathroom. Outside, gardens are to the front, back and side and there is an attached garage and off-road parking.
The property is approached from the road on to a drive leading to a parking space. The adjoining landowner currently has a right of access to the field (although a deed of release is being negotiated and is being finalised). A pedestrian gate opens on to a path leading to the front door. The front and side gardens are laid to lawn and a gate opens to the back garden which is laid to lawn with some flowers and shrubs. A back door from the garden opens in to the utility room
