Presented in immaculate order throughout, this delightfully quaint cottage dates back to the late 1800’s and offers accommodation totalling a cosy 518 square feet over two floors and benefits from having an area of private and secluded garden ground. With a location close to shops, restaurants, bars, and an array of excellent local amenities on the doorstep, this property is sure to appeal to many purchasers including first time buyers, or those looking for a holiday home.

Accessed down a shared vennel just off the High Street, the inviting internal accommodation comprises; ground floor entrance hallway with stairs to the first-floor landing, flooded by natural light via a Velux skylight.  With two windows to the front of the cottage is the light and airy open-plan sitting room kitchen.  There is ample space for both lounge and dining furniture, whilst a fabulous open fire with timber surround gives the room a real warming focal point.  The kitchen area is fitted with a range of modern wall and base units with contrasting worktop surfaces incorporating a stainless-steel sink unit.  Integrated appliances include an electric oven and hob, cooker hood, dishwasher, and fridge freezer.  There is a large walk-in storage/utility cupboard with a small rear facing window which houses the combi boiler and provides space and services for a washing machine.  Up on the first floor, there is a hallway landing with an extremely useful storage cupboard.  The pleasant and comfortable double bedroom features an original cast iron fireplace, whilst two windows to the front of the property fill the room with natural light.  Completing the accommodation is a modern bathroom incorporating a WC, wash hand basin, panelled bath with shower over, and an opaque window to the front.   

Externally, accessed via a shared pathway to the front of the cottage, there is an extremely low maintenance private garden area which is fully bound by both traditional stone walling and timber fencing.  Mainly laid to decorative chips, there is a paved patio area providing the perfect space for alfresco dining and relaxing in the summer months.  There is a useful outdoor brick store providing excellent external storage space.  Parking is available on surrounding streets and in the nearby East Station public car park, where parking is free of charge Sunday to Friday.
