EPC Rating: D.
Kerris Cottage forms a fabulous and charming and much improved sandstone built cottage, located just off the high street yet tucked away in a private location, with its own walled courtyard south facing garden with wonderful views across the valley beyond.
The property has been extended and modernised by the current owner to form a fabulous open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room area at the rear of the property opening directly on to the garden and enjoying the views beyond.
The sitting room has been left with the original character, including exposed brickwork fireplace and wood burner, with exposed beams and a newly tiled floor. There is also the front hall and lobby, and off the kitchen, a new cloakroom has been formed.
Upstairs, the bedrooms have been updated and the bathroom completely modernised, including a modern rolltop bath and separate shower unit.
One accesses the property via the front door to a mainly glazed porch, with a further door to the front lobby, with a small coat cupboard and door to the sitting room, with the inglenook fireplace and windows to front.
A door leads into the extended kitchen, fitted with a range of cream cupboard and drawer units, granite worktops and integrated ceramic sink with etched drainer, cooker with electric hob above, dishwasher and space for a fridge/freezer. French doors opening onto the south facing courtyard garden and making the most of the views. There is a small window to side and two velux windows. There is matching tiled flooring and partly timbered ceiling. A door leads into the cloakroom, comprising a WC and basin.
Stairs lead from the sitting room to the first floor, with two small double bedrooms, one with a window to front and a fitted wardrobe, and the other with window to rear, enjoying the view, and a door to the bathroom, comprising a standalone bath, WC, basin and separate shower, with tiled walls and wooden flooring.
Outside, the front garden is mainly laid to flower beds, with gravel paths to the front door and to the side, plus a log store. Trellising and an arch separate the garden to the side path, and also screens the waste bins.
The rear garden is accessed via the house, or the side path complete with gate, and is paved, with flower bed borders, with walls on all sides, tap, store and bench seat (available by separate negotiation) and a small shed.
Whilst the property is attached to the adjoining property, and is in such a central location, it is exceptionally private and quiet. There is no off road parking, but there is ample parking within the village, and the cottage is nigh-on on the level to the high street.
