Garth Cottage is an attractive detached stone built house dating we believe from the early 19th century. The property has been subject to a programme of improvements by the current owner and is now offered in excellent order throughout. The house retains original character features including a beamed fire place, flagstone floors and exposed ceiling and roof beams. The property occupies a plot approaching 0.75 acres with beautiful formal gardens offering well stocked borders and covered dining/seating areas. There is a superb vegetable garden with a substantial detached modern timber workshop/stores, fruit cage, greenhouse and poly tunnel opening to a large orchard with a variety of fruit trees. There is also a useful stone barn and garaging; the current owner has recently enquired regarding planning permission to convert this into living accommodation.
Mains water, drainage, gas and electricity are all connected. Council tax band D.
