Originally two cottages which have now been converted into one to make Jade Cottage, a charming detached period cottage situated in the sought-after village of Gurney Slade. We highly recommend you view internally to see the full potential this home has to offer. This three-bedroom detached property offers deceptively spacious accommodation with parking and numerous character features that the property possesses which include the inglenook fireplace, whilst also working well as a family home. There is genuine potential to extend subject to the relevant planning permission as The Cottage is set within a sizable plot.
This handsome cottage has elevations of stone and render under a pitched tiled roof and offers accommodation over two floors. On the ground floor, you will find a spacious living room with inglenook fireplace to the far wall which gives great warmth to the cottage, a generous dining room which provides ample space to entertain family and friends. A modern kitchen which leads to a pantry and downstairs WC. The cottage also boasts an addition to the cottage which the owners currently use as a second commercial kitchen but offers great diverse use for any buyer. To the first floor you will find three substantial bedrooms with en suite to master and the family bathroom.
Outside the property is approached by a 7ft high fencing with double opening gates which lead to the driveway parking which provides ample parking. Adjacent to this you will find a sizable lawned area, this provides a great space to entertain family and friends. A pathway has been created leading from the driveway to the front door.
To the side and rear of the property there is a more private area which can be used as further parking or a space to soak up the sun. This is where you will find the Oil storage tank.
