As you would expect, there are a wealth of period and character features such as exposed timbers, beams and an Inglenook fireplace (currently sealed and adapted to a bar area).

Drake Cottage was built before the larger adjoining Georgian-style residence to which has shared vehicular access off the High Street, to the north, leading to a garage.

The property has undergone an extensive programme of sympathetic modernisation by the current owners to include a new natural slate-tiled and lead roof, newly-installed gas-central heating system, re-wire and new windows throughout, to name just a few.


The accommodation comprises a reception area, large lounge with open-style exposed brick fireplace, spacious separate dining room with Inglenook fireplace, three double bedrooms, dressing area, study-landing, family bathroom and separate WC.

Externally, there is a walled south-facing rear garden, additional courtyard and attached garage.

The kerb appeal and abundance of charm make this home a real treasure and, with the added benefits, make this a property not to be missed.

An internal inspection is strongly advised to appreciate the quality and deceptively spacious accommodation.


Price offers over £500,000.
