This delightful Grade II listed character cottage dates from the 1700s and has the convenience of Haslemere's bustling town centre on the doorstep.
Having been lovingly and thoughtfully updated by the present owner, the cottage provides a bright and airy feeling throughout that comprises a hall with mosaic tiled floor and cloakroom off. The bay fronted sitting room looks out onto the High Street and has a fireplace with wood burner and picture rails. To the rear and overlooking the courtyard garden is the kitchen/dining room which like the hall, cloakroom and bathroom has electric underfloor heating. The well-appointed kitchen area has oak work tops, integrated oven, hob, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. There are then double glazed doors to the garden. There is a cellar currently used as storage that with the appropriate listed consent could be converted into further living space. Upstairs from the landing are three well-proportioned double bedrooms, complemented by a luxuriously appointed bathroom.
