Bedrooms: 4
A charming detached cottage situated in a prominent position in the heart of this popular hamlet. Substantial garage/workshop plus parking.

The Smithy is an attractive period detached residence which we believe dates back to the late 1700's and as the names suggests, was a former blacksmiths and continued as such, until the 1930's. Situated in a prominent position in the delightful hamlet of Burton, the property has been sympathetically updated by the current owners over the last few years with replacement kitchen and bathrooms, oak doors, handmade cast iron curtain rails and door latches, to name a few. The Smithy still retains the charm and character of a period property, whilst enjoying all the modern day comforts including oil fired central heating, wood burners and double glazed windows and doors.

The spacious and flexible accommodation is arranged over two floors and briefly comprises; an entrance door opens into the kitchen which is beautifully fitted with a range of contemporary units, complemented with granite worktops, brick effect tiling to splashbacks and incorporating a Belfast sink, built-in appliances and a Range cooker (available by separate negotiation). Leading from the kitchen you will find a snug/breakfast room with an attractive wood burner and door through to the lobby with an external door. Also from the snug is an opening which provides access through to the reception rooms and staircase rising to the first floor. The lounge overlooks the garden, has a fantastic inglenook with wood burner and an external door out to the garden and parking area. There is a useful WC at the rear of the lounge. The double aspect dining room with feature fireplace completes the ground floor accommodation.

On the first floor there are 4 bedrooms; two of which are double aspect and all have views across Burton and fields beyond. A stylish bathroom with marble tiling, bath with hand shower attachment and separate walk-in shower cubicle, completes the first floor accommodation.

The Smithy also benefits from a substantial garage/workshop which extends to over 41' in length with remote garage door, small office space and WC. The workshop is directly attached and could be converted to provide more living accommodation, subject to any planning/building regulations. In addition, there is an external utility with power and plumbing.

Outside, there is a block paved area that runs alongside the house and provides parking for 2 vehicles. There is a garden store and boiler room behind the parking area. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with a range of mature shrubs and an attractive stone wall boundary.

NB. Car parking may be available by licence on land which does not form part of the sale. Subject to availability and the discretion of the owners.
