Full Details

ACCOMMODATION: 12 Mill Village is situated in a quiet part of Mill Village, with a designated car parking space directly outside the property. A characterful barn door opens to reveal the front door, for you to enter this incredibly cute 1 bedroom cottage. All windows hard wood and double glazed, installed just three years ago. Gigaclear, superfast fibre broadband.

The living space you walk into is flooded with natural light, and has been thoughtfully designed to incorporate a kitchen, dining area and lounge. To top it off, there is a functioning, traditional wood burner, which adds that wow factor! Leading off of the living area are two doors, one to access the double bedroom, and the other to access the recently renovated shower room, complete with WC, wash hand basin and heated towel rail.

There are large, traditional style windows in each room, as well as two ten pane doors, which open out into the courtyard, perfect for a morning coffee and al fresco dining. The light in the cosy cottage is truly incredible. The property also has a mezzanine level, accessed via a built in ladder, for extra storage, or as the owners currently use it for, extra beds. 

KITCHEN: The kitchen is open plan, with cupboard storage space, undercounter fridge freezer, slim-line dishwasher, sink and built in Neff oven, finished with an oak worktop and mini metro mosaic tiles, further adding to the character of this charming cottage. Oak flooring.

Living area: The open plan living & dining area enjoys ample light and comfortable accommodates a 2-person sofa, armchair, tv unit & tv, as well as a dining table that can seat 4 . The ten pane double doors lead to the quaint courtyard which is quiet, peaceful and enjoys sun almost all day long. Oak flooring. 

Bedroom: The bedroom, accessed from the main living area is once again thoughtfully configured, comfortably accommodating a double bed with bunk (sleeping space for three), a bed side table and low level wardrobe with drawers. Large window to front, continuing the theme of light in the cottage. Oak flooring. 

Shower Room: Modern shower room with good sized shower cubicle, sink, WC, and washing machine. Large window to front. Tile effect laminate flooring. 

Mezzanine level: Accessed via a wooden, built in ladder is an extremely useful space, currently used for two extra beds. For holiday rentals, some work may need to be done to comply with health and safety, however if the extra space was not needed, this could be an extremely useful storage space. The current owners rent the cottage out as sleeping three (in the ground floor bedroom), and only use the mezzanine level for when they stay with family. 

OUTSIDE: Parking space is a very short walk from the front door.  Additional parking is available in the overflow car park, no more than a 1 minute walk from the property. The courtyard is a huge bonus, and offers sun almost all day long, in a tranquil setting.
