Hillview Cottage is believed to date back in part, to the 16th century, and has been the subject of very considerable expense by the present owners who have created a superbly appointed cottage style home. No expense has been spared in the improvement and extension of the property including the fitting out of the very large kitchen/diner having solid oak units with granite worktops. The living room has the benefit of an Inglenook fireplace with fitted wood burner and engineered oak flooring which also extends into the hallway. The ground floor has the benefit of under floor oil fired central heating with radiators on the first floor. The much larger than average conservatory provides additional living accommodation . The master bedroom is extremely spacious and the second bedroom/guest room has the advantage of an en-suite shower room/wc. The third bedroom is also of a good size and the well appointed family bathroom completes the internal accommodation. The gardens are attractively laid out and well established . The property also has the significant benefit of a large detached double garage. Properties of this nature very rarely become available and a full inspection is considered essential to appreciate its many fine attributes. The accommodation in detail comprises:
