3 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

A character south facing stone house in excellent central village location with large oak framed double garage and workshop.

Firtree Cottage is a detached house of Marnhull stone elevations under a pitched clay tiled roof and is believed to have been built in the late 1600s before being remodelled in Victorian times. The current owners bought the house in 1995 and have renovated it completely since then and added the kitchen extension. The Marnhull stone floors in the kitchen and dining room are original to the house but were lifted, cut and laid over a membrane during the renovation. The house has a very comfortable feel to it and is light and bright with the front elevation being south facing. A solid oak front door under a covered porch opens into the dining room with Marnhull stone floor and fireplace. The kitchen has a new electric Aga and farmhouse sink with very good sized utility room and door to outside. Beyond the dining room is a sitting room with wood burning stove in stone fireplace and a study completes the ground floor accommodation. From the sitting room a staircase leads to the first floor landing off which there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. The windows on the front of the house (south) are bespoke oak and there is a mixture of double and single glazing. The sellers have a lapsed planning consent - 2/2019/0587 for a single storey extension providing a larger kitchen, utility and cloakroom.

Outside the garden is to the front is walled for privacy. There is a large car barn / workshop and ample parking.
