Stunning quirky property... This is a truly stunning very large semi-detached through cottage property that has been extended and refurbished throughout to a high standard by its discerning owners. We believe that the property is well over 200 years old and was originally a pair of mine workers cottages that have now been combined to create one large family home.

The property has a charming, cosy and welcoming feel in every room. Many original features such as exposed timbers have been retained, but modern day comforts such as a separate well fitted kitchen, double glazing, central heating and partial under floor heating have been added. Of particular interest is the wonderful glass roofed conservatory which has been created using ancient reclaimed timbers. Decorations are tasteful and neutral. The property has the added benefit of a block paved parking area, small front patio and a large very interesting rear garden which backs onto open fields.
