for the north.
Myrtle Cottage is a charming detached property in the desirable village of Epwell.
The property has been in the same family ownership for many years and now offers an opportunity for potential extension (subject to necessary planning consents), or indeed would benefit from some general updating to provide a delightful village home.
The entrance hallway leads to the good sized kitchen/breakfast room, with ceiling beams and a large inglenook fireplace (closed). A door leads to the rear garden. The sitting room has a large inglenook fireplace with woodburner. The bathroom is on the ground floor. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, and a very useful floor hatch above the stairs to the back bedroom provides access for furniture.
Gardens and grounds
In the rear garden there is a useful detached stone outbuilding. that has the potential to either be incorporated into the main house (with planning permission) or alternatively be transformed into an ideal home office/studio.
The garden is mainly laid to lawn with stone walls, mature planting and a fruit tree. There is off-street parking to the side of the cottage.
