Thimble Cottage is a delightful 1700's stone and brick cottage positioned in the heart of the desirable village of Pitsford. It has been sensitively renovated and rebuilt over the last few years by the current owner. It is filled with character features including curved exposed stone and brick walls, oak beams, and latched doors. Upon entering, the entrance hall leads into the sitting room, which has an open fireplace, a slate hearth, and fitted window seat. The rear hall leads into the ground floor bathroom which retains the character of the cottage with oak beams and a wooden floor. A brick and tile extension to the rear of the house provides a sun-lit fully fitted kitchen/dining area with a raised ceiling, veluxes, and a large paned window all looking out onto the south facing courtyard garden. On the first floor, the second bedroom/office, currently used as a cinema area, leads to a generous master bedroom. Externally, the south facing rear garden courtyard offers plenty of space for outdoor dining, and also has gated side access. A viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the quality, character and charm of this property. EPC: TBC
