PROPERTY DECSRIPTION Built circa 1890, and set within approximately a 1/4 acre plot, "Clover Cottage" , as the name alludes to, is a delightful and very pretty semi-detached cottage, with quintessentially English charm and character. Originally the residence of a local estate worker, immediately you step in to this former farm cottage, you instantly feel part of its rich past and heritage; steeped in local history. The cottage has undergone extensive renovations and extension over the years and has been very well maintained by the current owners. It is now a well proportioned, spacious and very comfortable family home that is located on a private lane, in a peaceful and tranquil sylvan location, and yet within close walking proximity to the bustling town centre and award wining sandy beaches. " Clover Cottage" benefits from FOUR DOUBLE bedrooms, modern fitted kitchen, TWO bathrooms, 3 wcs, utility area, large conservatory, spacious sitting room, and dining area/breakfast room, and a fully fitted study/office that would lend itself perfectly to those looking for work-from-home arrangements. Well maintained mature gardens, along with a garage and driveway parking for multiple vehicles, make " Clover Cottage " a wonderful family home now fully equipped for modern day family living, in a highly sought-after and desirable location.
