"This lovely traditional cottage would ideally be suited to those searching for an easily managed starter property but would be equally suitable as an investment opportunity, and is presented onto the market in very good condition having been sympathetically updated by the present owner in keeping with the more traditional style of the property.

"The rooms are comfortably proportioned, with direct access to the enclosed rear garden provided by a stable door from the kitchen.
