Full Details

Located just a short walk from the town's amenities with a thriving community as well as regular bus transport, this characterful cottage hides a little bit of a secret. Part thatch, part slate, the cottage has retained much of it’s original character both inside and out but once you walk in the front door, it becomes clear that this may not be your usual Grade II listed cottage. Often cottages can be a little dark, maybe with small defined rooms, but not in Sunny Cottage. As the name suggests, a clever design has opened up the inside of this beautiful home to allow plenty of light to flood in from the rear and make some wonderful open living spaces that one wouldn’t usually expect in a cottage. Of course, there’s the modern convenience of central heating but the character remains to be appreciated. The whole property is very well presented with neutral décor and a quality finish, one that needs to be seen in person to truly appreciate.
The layout gives an entrance hall with a door to the cosy sitting room with wood burner (currently not used) which can be used as a breakaway from the open spaces to come. There’s a door to the rear courtyard too. The main living spaces have been knocked into one larger, zoned room which gives sitting and dining areas and opens into the kitchen to the rear. The cleverly designed kitchen extension has bi-folding doors out onto the courtyard garden and creates a wonderful light, open space. There’s a useful utility room and in turn, a door leads to the integral garage which provides fantastic additional storage or hobby space as part of the house.
On the first floor is a pretty and central landing which gives access to the 4 bedrooms and the family bathroom. The principle bedroom has a fantastic en-suite with a large walk in shower. There’s another large bedroom over the garage with built in storage and the further 2 bedrooms are a good size. The main family bathroom is a lovely room with a freestanding bath to enjoy a soak with a good book!
Outside, the property benefits from the garage opening onto the street which in turn creates parking directly outside as space needed for the garage access. The courtyard garden to the rear is very private and a real sun trap being south facing and protected from the wind. It’s a great low maintenance space, ideal for pots and easy to look after, a perfect getaway at the end of the day. It’s worth noting that there’s also additional on street parking locally and a small free car park around the corner.
Agents Note: in the garage is the oil tank (legal) but this would impact the ability to have a car into the garage.
