A rare opportunity to purchase this substantial Grade II listed detached stone cottage with accommodation in excess of 3500 square feet and offering masses of scope for further improvement, whilst retaining a host of charm and character, including, exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces, a delightful attic room ripe for conversion and some super outbuildings in all situated on a plot of approximately a quarter of an acre. Accommodation briefly comprises: Entrance hall, cloak & boot room, five reception rooms, kitchen, five bedrooms, family bathroom, outbuildings and attractive well established gardens.
The Property Corn Cottage originally dates back to the 17th century and relishes in a leading position slightly set back off the High Street. Over time it has been sympathetically extended to the rear and has been in the same ownership for just over 50 years.
The cottage still possesses many original features including: Inglenook fireplaces in several rooms, bread oven, exposed timbers and exposed flooring. The main elevation supports a thatched roof which is protected by corrugated iron sheeting. It has been said that the iron sheeting was added during the war years in the 1940s due to the shortage of thatches in the area at the time. Whilst requiring some modernisation and upgrades, the cottage offers bountiful family accommodation over three floors. Complementing the cottage are the detached stone outbuildings, including the former cattle barn overlooking the walled kitchen gardens. A viewing is crucial to appreciate the timeless charm and potential in which Corn Cottage offers.
