On the market for the first time in almost twenty years, briefly the property comprises of three bedrooms, one of which is en-suite, a large bathroom, living room, kitchen and utility area and conservatory leading onto private rear garden.


The property is well situated in a quiet hamlet, offering a peaceful countryside feel whilst benefiting from its proximity to the A30 for travel by road. The property has been enhanced with a new kitchen, conservatory and conversion of an outbuilding to create a stylish and modern studio annexe with independent access.
