A delightful 2 bedroom semi-detached house, part of a very pretty Victorian cottage built in 1827 for the church as the village primary school.
The front entrance has a gothic arch, typical of the period. The porch is flanked by stone mullion windows on each side and there is a fine example of a further stone mullion window which can be seen within the interior to the sitting room and main bedroom.
There is a small south facing garden area measuring approx. 8' x 9' which could be used if required, to include a small table and chairs and BBQ area, with perhaps the introduction of a picket gate to the front wall. It should be noted this is the only garden area which belongs to the property.
