About the property

DESCRIPTION Cavan Cottage is a delightful detached period cottage having a white Suffolk brick front elevation with gabled entrance porch and side and rear elevations of white colour washed rendering, all being under a slate roof. The property was extended in the late 1980s with the addition of a two storey extension to the rear of the original cottage, which now gives practically proportioned rooms with three double bedrooms on the first floor. Cavan Cottage has the benefit of a modern gas fired central heating system from a combi boiler and a wet room conversion on the first floor. The property could probably benefit from the refitting of the kitchen and redecoration. However, once completed, Cavan Cottage will make a rewarding permanent home or weekend retreat with obvious letting potential. Adjacent to the cottage is a good sized garden upon which in December 2016 was granted Outline Planning Permission for the erection of a new additional detached three bedroom dwelling, sharing the existing vehicular access.
