DELIGHTFUL and SYMPATHETICALLY REFURBISHED Grade II listed seventeenth century cottage situated in a quiet but convenient area in theHEART OF THE VILLAGE. This charming 'chocolate box' style THATCHED COTTAGE is located in the old part of the village and has retained much of its ORIGINAL CHARACTER, having been sympathetically refurbished in 2001/2002. Beyond this, the current owners have made further improvements, with the entire roofing re-thatched in 2010 and a modern oil fired combination boiler installed in 2009. The property enjoys gardens to the front, side and rear and in 2014, the current owners also constructed an underground garage which has been fully tanked measuring 484 square feet which sits underneath the lawned gardens. There is an attractive brick paved driveway/parking area at the front. We believe this is only the third time that this property has been on the open market in the last 100 years and represents an exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a home with distinction within this popular and thriving village community which offers a wide range of local amenities.
