The property

Little Phoenix Cottage is an immaculately presented, red brick home in an elevated position, offering the perfect blend of period features and contemporary interior styling for modern living.

The front entrance leads into the sitting room, where relaxed seating centres around the brick-built fireplace with inset wood-burning stove and original features include exposed beams to the ceiling. The adjacent dining room offers ample space for a good-sized table with glazed double doors opening to the kitchen/breakfast room just beyond. Fitted with modern, white wall and base level units, topped with wooden worksurfaces, the kitchen has a Belfast sink and a range cooker, along with an area suited to informal dining whilst enjoying the natural light entering from outside via a further set of French doors.

A staircase to the first floor rises up from the dining room and gives access to two of the three bedrooms. The principal bedroom has wardrobe storage and a well-fitted en suite shower room, whilst the second bedroom across the landing also benefits from en suite facilities. An excellent family bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle is located at this level, along with a further staircase to access the top floor, which comprises a bedroom and landing area.
