The Property:

Army Row Cottages were built around 1850 to house returning soldiers from The Crimean War, originally a row of three this property formed two of the cottages and was merged and extended to the ground and first floor to create what is now a well-proportioned period cottage ideal for both family living and entertaining. The ground floor has an entrance porch to the front, which allows pedestrian access over the garden to the front gate. The sitting and dining rooms are open at one end and have a centralised fireplace which is ideal for an open fire or to house a wood burning stove, behind this is a fitted kitchen/breakfast room which is undoubtedly the heart of the house leading to a family room, utility room and cloakroom. The first floor has four bedrooms all with spacious fitted wardrobes and served by a shower room and separate bathroom. Outside there is an enclosed and private rear garden, which is hard landscaped with interspersed flower and shrub borders and a lawn, greenhouse and shed. To the rear of the garden is off-road parking for three/four vehicles which in this location is a real bonus.
