A stunning detached thatched cottage which is thought to date back to the 17th century yet, remarkably, is unlisted. The property offers a wealth of characterful features and is well-suited to modern living with ample open-plan living accommodation, generous proportions and high ceilings. The property has been thoughtfully configured to provide private accommodation with three further self-contained homes which could easily be incorporated back into the main house as one substantial dwelling. Beautiful mature gardens surround the property on all sides with lovely far-reaching countryside views and there is the further benefit of an additional meadow which could be well-utilised as fully-fenced paddocks. In all about 3.2 acres.
