Beautiful detached, four-bedroom period cottage the oldest part of which is thought to be C17 and part of an old coach house to an adjoining property (no longer in existence). It is situated in a secluded spot just a short walk from open countryside and only a short distance from a village pub, Cowden village and Cowden mainline train station.
This lovely property sits on a generous plot in a rural position with views over the large well-maintained garden.
The property would make a wonderful family home in a tucked away location. An early viewing is highly recommended in order to appreciate the overall appeal, size of the plot and stunning rural feel. It is thought to have potential to extend, renovate and develop the property, subject to the necessary planning consent.

A large kitchen breakfast room with a good range of wall and base units and drawers under worktops and an oil-fired Aga, which could be opened up to create a large room overlooking the garden.
The ground floor has an entrance hall with a formal front door and also gives outside access to the ground floor annexe, which comprises a large bedroom and shower room with wc.
The first floor is made up of three bedrooms and a family bathroom.
To the outside the property has a large garden with orangery, workshop, an open wooden barn structure and two sheds. The property has parking for a number of cars.
