About this property

ENJOYING A BEAUTIFUL LARGE PLOT OF APPROXIMATELY A THIRD-OF-AN ACRE, a single storey, Grade II Listed, detached, thatched cottage with planning permission to significantly enlarge the property to create a spacious, 3 bedroom, detached home with new double garage with studio above.

The property is situated on a really beautiful large plot of approximately a third-of-an-acre of mature gardens. Dating from approximately 1800, this single storey cottage has had the thatch renewed in the last year and also has planning consent granted to significantly enlarge the property to provide three bedrooms, with a double garage with accommodation above. This character property is in good order throughout, with the benefit of oil-fired central heating and enjoys much charm and character, with an inglenook fireplace to the sitting room. The planning permission granted would almost double the accommodation and create a very comfortable home on a very large plot.
