An apparently traditional, pretty cottage in a terrace facing south over the green, 21 High Street seems to represent all the characteristics of a charming village property.

It all combines in a home of true charm and appeal that s cosy and cottagey, contemporary and stylish. Laid out over four floors, there are an unexpected two reception rooms, two double bedrooms and two bathrooms. Stylishly presented throughout, on the lower ground floor is a lovely room with ceiling beams. Depending on requirements, it could be a TV lounge for teenagers, a home office, playroom or third bedroom. On the ground floor, the front entrance porch with its quarry tile floor opens into a beautiful lounge with a Georgian fireplace. This leads up stone steps into the open plan dining room, which has a cast iron range and French doors that allow in plenty of natural light and open out to the ceramic-tiled courtyard garden with canopy. The kitchen is very well fitted with an excellent range of contemporary grey units, oak worktops, a Belfast sink, attractive tiling and Velux windows, together with a walk-in laundry. Further storage runs along the full depth of the property with access doors from the back and from the pretty cottage garden at the front.
