A period four bedroom family house dating back to 1880. Set in over one third of an acre, Hillside Cottage has potential to extend further subject to planning permission.
Set on a quiet lane on the edge of this popular village with fields to the front and back, Hillside Cottage is a period four bedroom detached property. In 1984 the house was extended at the side to provide an upstairs bathroom and third bedroom and in 1991 to enlarge the living room, create a utility room and also a fourth bedroom upstairs. The extension was intentionally designed by the architect to provide obvious scope for further extending the cottage should someone wish to do so in the future subject to planning permission. Outside, the property has a gravel driveway providing parking for several cars and a south west facing rear garden which backs onto open fields at the rear.
