A charming village cottage, stone built, containing years of history and character. Beautifully presented with rustic charm, the property is detached and occupies a sizeable plot, which within stands a self contained annex. Whilst the former stables have been half converted to accommodate a spacious home office. The village of Titchmarsh is quiet and friendly, with a village shop, local pub and is a hive of clubs and activities for all the villagers, with a primary school and playing field nearby to the property. The current owners of the property have considered, and illustrated, merging the cottage and annex together by means of a new extension but have chosen to sell the property and its land / buildings as it is, but there is huge potential to change the footprint of this family home.

The triple aspect living room features windows to the front, rear and side and a working, open fireplace.

Externally, the garden is private, south facing, predominantly gravelled but also planted with mature trees and established fruit trees and is the current home of the owners chickens & ducks. To the rear of the garden is a large chicken coop with double gates alongside to allow for secure off road parking with the potential to convert the former stables into a large garage / workshop.
