A most desirable and distinctive detached double fronted four bedroom character cottage, occupying a beautiful position with large and lovely gardens, nestled within the idyllic village of Llancarfan. This unique home retains may period features including gabled porch with stable entrance door and quarry tiled floor, a natural stone fireplace within the living room equipped with a bread oven, a solid wood mantel and a charming flagstone hearth, inset with a cast iron wood burning stove (The Darby AD 1980) by The Coalbrrokdale company.

The deceptively spacious living space includes a generous well-proportioned living room (23'4 x 15'7), a superb open plan kitchen and breakfast room (20'1 x 14'5) inset with a large range cooker with characteristic brick dressing surround, a ground floor shower room and a separate useful utility room.

Two of the bedrooms both include plantation shutters, and each of the rooms throughout this charming cottage enjoy pleasing outlooks in each direction.

The Property
There is a very deep frontage with paved slabs and mature gardens setting the property to its picture perfect postcard look. On the side of the property there is a path leading to the wide and private rear garden, around the corner there is a summer house. The delightful rear gardens include steps laid to Cotswold gravel leads up to the top garden which is large and private. Laid mostly to lawn with a dense hedge boundary.

The property also has potential to be extended and we understand the present owners have sought planning in the past. The property is freehold, with mains water, mains electricity and mains drainage, whilst the heating is oil fired.
