About the Property

A rare opportunity to purchase this handsome Grade II Listed weather boarded cottage found centrally at the top of Gillsmans Hill affording an immediate ease of access to amenities. Internally the property is deceptively spacious offering a plethora of character that has been lovingly cared for and lived in for the last 23 years by the current vendors. In principle the property offers an entrance porch, open plan 19′ x 17′ main reception room with a beautiful and striking inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove with an array of wooden beams and a triple aspect providing plenty of light into the property, the reception room then leads through to the kitchen to the rear offering ample space for appliances with a door leading out to the garden together with a conservatory/breakfast room to the rear considered as a versatile space currently used as a breakfast room and additional storage with views onto the garden. To the first floor there is a feature landing with exposed brick chimney breast with wooden latch doors leading off to two bedrooms, the larger of the two offers a wall of bespoke fitted wardrobes and a verdant outlook to the front, the rear bedroom has an exposed brick feature with original fireplace together with the landing offering access to the loft space above and access to a bathroom/wc. An enclosed courtyard garden wraps around the property affording a private aspect with the advantage of being south facing. Listed properties of this calibre and within this location are seldom available to purchase and viewings come highly recommended via appointed sole agents Rush Witt & Wilson.
