Sunshine Cottage

A superb opportunity to purchase a modern, stone built, detached home in this village which is a conservation area. The property has had full planning permission granted and all of the exterior works have been undertaken by the present owner. It is offered for sale a a shell for the new owner to finish their dream home to their own specifications. Sunshine Cottage has been sympathetically constructed in stone, has weathered nicely and appears indistinguishable from the more mature properties within its immediate neighborhood. Particular features of note include a walled garden with off-street parking and disabled access.

Design & Accommodation

The property is approached via substantial bespoke wrought iron gates which allow vehicular access to the walled courtyard with on-site parking for one car and a flower bed area to the side. From here stone steps rise to the south facing, stone terrace which runs the full width of the building and provides a lovely seating area with a matching wrought iron balustrade running the full width of its perimeter. From here there is access to the main front door, the side door and a pedestrian gate to the side drive.

The interior is the place where the new owner can design their home. The seller has provided their interpretation both on paper and marked out in the property which would provide an open plan living/dining kitchen with a vaulted ceiling and gallery, two ground floor bedrooms, a ground floor shower room and a first floor room which could be another bedroom.


We are advised by the vendor that the construction is a high insulation timber frame with traditional Yorkstone cladding and detailing and a graded standstone roof. The doors and windows are Trada double glazed, factory painted and all windows are escape type, being fully opening. The roof lights are velux, those over the wetroom and kitchen are able to be opened manually but if desired may benefit from a motor control. An insulated flue is provided as the original intended multi-fuel stove has been considered in the construction.


We are advised by the vendor that drainage is connected, a water meter is installed and mains electricity will be connected by the purchaser.

Grey water collects from the roof drainage and discharges to a spring ducted below the the property.
