A delightful three bedroom Grade II Listed cottage of 14th Century origin, located in the heart of the town with an array of character features including oak timbers, fireplaces and a lovely secluded rear garden.
Lynde Cross Cottage is understood to have origins in the 14th century and is Grade II Listed. Within just a short walk of both John Lewis, Sainsburys and, of course, the town centre, the property has been enlarged over various periods and comprises a sitting room and dining room, a particularly spacious kitchen/breakfast room and a rear lobby where there is a laundry area and a bathroom. There are two staircases, one is very old indeed and twists upwards where there are the two principal bedrooms, both with their vaulted ceilings and the main bedroom with evidence of ancient wall paintings. There is also a further bedroom and a shower room. What is surprising about this old house is how bright and airy it seems and this will surprise viewers. Outside there is an absolutely stunning cottage garden which enjoys a surprisingly good degree of privacy and faces in a south-westerly orientation. It must be noted that there is no parking, however there are numerous car parks and potential places to park in and around the town. If you are looking for a character home in the centre of town, then Lynde Cross Cottage is the one for you!
