The detached home, which already includes three double bedrooms and two reception rooms, has planning consent for a two-storey extension to add an extra bedroom, an en suite bathroom and reception room.

Implementation of this will mean losing an attached single garage, but the existing double garage and separate carport will be retained. As approval has also been given for a heritage-style detached double garage, there is scope to create garaging for a total of five vehicles.

On the market at a guide price of £535,000, the gas centrally heated and double glazed property is convenient for the town centre, schools and leisure facilities.

Set well back from Coopers Lane and approached via a gated entrance, the cottage has a particularly large area of lawn to the front and secluded cottage gardens extending to about 100ft by 90ft at the rear. Here are more lawns, numerous shrubs, well stocked beds, a weeping willow, paved terrace, greenhouse, shed and covered storage area. There is also a pond complete with water lilies, plus a vegetable area.

The property’s main living areas are similarly proportioned and front facing. In the sitting room are ceiling beams, two panelled walls and an inglenook-style fireplace with log burning stove. The dining room comes with a timber panelled ceiling, a pine cupboard and a matching fireplace with cast iron inset.

The kitchen looks to the rear and benefits from extensive work surfaces, cupboards and drawers. It has a breakfast bar, a gas hob, plumbing for a dishwasher and a stable door opening to a virtually square sun room. On the other side of the kitchen is a utility room, off of which is a cloakroom.

The upstairs landing features a sandstone wall and has access to the loft. The three bedrooms are all doubles and two have timber panelling and wardrobe storage.

A white suite is installed in the bathroom.
