A beautiful Grade II listed detached cottage which is located in a picturesque location facing the village green and close to Benhall Wadd, which is a special nature conservation area managed by the parish council. The cottage, which is believed to date from the 19th century, has recently been the subject of an extensive programme of sympathetic modernisation and extension. The owners have taken pains to conserve the original architectural features of the cottage whilst providing a new electric heating system and a delightful open plan kitchen/dining/living room which opens out to a pretty rear garden via French windows. The well-proportioned sitting room, which faces the village green, has a fireplace with a wood burning stove. There is also a useful downstairs cloakroom. The three first floor bedrooms are served by a very smart new shower room. The landing can be used as a study area.
