INTRODUCTION A true character cottage in every sense. The original building is believed to date back to the mid 1700s being converted from a barn at a later stage. Beams, shutters and latch doors have been retained throughout whilst being combined with modern sympathetic double glazed windows, gas central heating and a modern shower room. The kitchen extension at the rear has open views across countryside towards St Anthonys Tower, whilst the lounge and dining room look across the front garden. There are three bedrooms - two with fitted cupboards. The garden areas have been created to attract wildlife and have been well tended for many years - and yes, there is still a rose garden at the front. The current owners have been in residence for over twenty years and have maintained the property well during this time, they are now ready to pass this lovely home onto the next family.
