Originally built as two cottages, Hartley Cottage dates back to the late 19th century, constructed of brick and render walls beneath a tiled roof-line. Over the years the house has been well maintained and has subsequently been extended to the rear with a flat roof brick kitchen extension.
Via the front door the first room you will enter is the hallway, which is of good size with stairs leading up to the first floor. Straight ahead, you will find the sitting room, which boasts an open fireplace with brick surround and a useful storage cupboard. Leading off the sitting room is a study and also a cloakroom. From the hallway a door opens into the dining room. Beyond the dining room is the kitchen which forms part of the later extension to the house. The kitchen is well fitted with a range of units and space for appliances including a washing machine, tumble dryer, cooker, fridge and freezer. There is ample room for a breakfast table. The room houses the oil fired boiler (refitted in 2011) and also has a door leading out to the garden.
On the first floor are three double bedrooms. Each bedroom has built in wardrobes with the master bedroom having a small en-suite shower room. The second bedroom is dual aspect and also benefits from a wash hand basin. The family bathroom is of good size with a three piece bathroom suite, an airing cupboard and storage cupboard.
12 solar panels have been installed on the south facing main roof of the house with a hi-feed in rate tariff.
