Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
A well-proportioned three double bedroomed detached cottage surrounded by lovely gardens extending to a 1/4 of an acre in a rural 'off the beaten track' location at the end of an unmade country lane. Victoria Cottage lends the room proportions and character of a Victorian cottage with modern conveniences including oil-fired central heating and double glazed windows. Of particular merit is the landscaped gardens that surround the property with well-stocked shrub beds providing an abundance of colour throughout the year.
