A quintessential detached Grade II listed cottage neighbouring an equally attractive period home, with surrounding gardens. The cottage has been fondly maintained throughout the last 30 years by the current owners, with works completed such as an extension and re-thatching of the roof. The flexible accommodation offers a suitable place to work from home; the cosy sitting room has a mix of original and feature beams, an attractive open fire and there are two generous double bedrooms. The cottage style garden is also a credit to the vendors, being well stocked with a wide range of shrubs and perennials. There is a cobbled courtyard and gravel driveway providing parking.
The Spinney has unexpectedly high ceilings for a property of this age and has secondary or double glazing throughout.
