Built in 1881 and having been subject to many improvements over the last year, No.44 retains many of the character features including the granite and brick archways on the front of the house replicating the archways on the National Trust alms houses which are opposite. The roof has been replaced, the electrics completely rewired including smoke detectors, some new lime plaster rendering has been applied, a new kitchen has been fitted and a new shower room. The mains gas fired central heating boiler has also just been serviced and certificated. On the ground floor the accommodation comprises a living room with a wood burning stove and space for a dining table and a newly fitted kitchen with a back door leading out to the pathway to the garden. Upstairs there is a double bedroom and shower room with space on the landing for a study and a further staircase leads up to the double bedroom in the attic. This property is gas centrally heated for comfort. The garden area is about 30 metres away and has a raised deck and a shed and there are two further brick and stone sheds for wood and garden storage. Fowlers strongly recommend viewing to appreciate the potential of this sturdy character home. During the Covid19 crisis Fowlers are still open for calls and emails, and many of our properties have 3D laser video tours available for virtual viewings.
