Low Moss Cottage is a charming, off-grid, stone built 18th Century detached cottage situated amidst open countryside. The property has been fully renovated throughout to a recent standard, and benefits from 2.2 Ha (5.44 Ac) of grazing land and would therefore be ideally suited to a smallholding, subject to the necessary consents. There is also permission granted for the erection of a detached garage on site.

This in turn leads into the breakfasting kitchen which is fitted with a range of matte, handle-less base units topped with solid oak worktops which incorporate a Porcelain Belfast sink with mixer tap. There is ample space for freestanding appliances, whilst the room is flooded with natural light courtesy of the dual aspect to the side and rear, as well as the Velux skylights. There is also a small wine cellar recessed within the solid wood flooring and features automatic sensor lighting, whilst the exposed stone wall contributes to the character of the room. The shower room is accessed from the breakfasting kitchen, and comprises of a low level WC, stone bowl sink set upon a wooden vanity unit with mixer tap, and a double shower cubicle with a shower fed from the spring water supply. The solid wood flooring from the kitchen continues into the shower room, whilst the shower room is heated by a chrome, wall mounted towel rail. The living room is also accessed from the breakfasting kitchen, and features flagged stone flooring throughout. Benefitting from a multi fuel stove set within a stone inglenook with a slate hearth, the living room enjoys a pleasant outlook overlooking the property’s land and surrounding countryside. Stairs from the living room rises to the master bedroom, which is a light and airy well proportioned double. Featuring stripped wooden flooring throughout, Cathedral beams to the ceiling contribute to the character of the room. The master bedroom also features a freestanding bath with floor standing tap, as well as a multi fuel stove recessed within the chimney breast, and enjoys uninterrupted views over the fields and countryside.
