Best & Final offers invited by Thursday 4th May 12pm
Ilott Cottage is a fine double fronted property with stone-built elevations and handsome mullioned and leaded windows. In need of restoring, the cottage offers an array of characterful accommodation across two floors and a scenic wrap-around garden.
The home is entered via the capacious 22ft. multi-aspect sitting room, with its stone and brick-built feature fireplace, log-burning stove and stairway rising to the first-floor level. Double doors open to the adjoining conservatory, with its peaceful views and plentiful natural light, leading onto the terrace and garden. Alongside is the kitchen with its terracotta tiled flooring, which also enjoys light from the adjacent conservatory, whilst a useful cloakroom completes the floor.
On the first floor are three well-proportioned and charming bedrooms all with elevated rural views. The principal bedroom has dual aspects, with bedroom two benefitting from an in-built wardrobe and the third bedroom having an original fireplace.
The property boats an attractive elevated plot in a conservation area within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Nestled away among mature trees, it features a rear stone laid terrace beside the conservatory, a garden shed and a level private wrap-around lawned garden with abundant potential. There are unbeatable far-reaching countryside views.
