DELIGHTFUL, ‘CHOCOLATE BOX’ COUNTRY COTTAGE WITH A VILLAGE GREEN SETTING 3 Bedrooms (third bedroom could configure as a Dining room) • Bathroom • Sitting room • Kitchen • Dining hall/space • Garden to front • Rear courtyard • Off-road parking space

Wark Cottage is a beautiful detached freehold house located in the picturesque and historic village of Whittingham. This charming property is situated within the conservation area and fronts the village green. It is a pretty, welcoming Grade II Listed house with all the appeal of a typical ‘chocolate box’ cottage. Constructed in 1851 of dressed sandstone under a Welsh slate roof the property has been well-loved by the current owners who have gone to great lengths to carry out routine maintenance and general improvements skilfully and sympathetically in-line with Listed Building guidelines.
Accommodation comprises, to the ground floor:- Comfortable sitting room with a dual aspect and a cosy multi fuel stove set in an inglenook fireplace. The staircase rises from the sitting room to the first floor accommodation. Back on the ground floor and to the left of the sitting room is a dining room/third bedroom. There is a rear hallway which gives access to the bathroom and a dining space with the kitchen beyond. There is a Rayburn stove in the kitchen and it will be fair to say that buyers will no doubt wish to up-date the range of fitted cupboards. The cottage has come to the market at a price to reflect this.
To the first floor are 2 generous bedrooms both looking onto the village green. The bedrooms have pretty fireplaces and one has a concealed WC and wash hand basin.
In all, a pretty ’roses round the door’ country cottage offering huge appeal to holiday visitors and owner occupers alike.

Beyond a wrought iron gate is a path leading to the entrance. There are lawns on either side of the path and these are bordered by a holly hedge.
To the rear is a paved courtyard, a real suntrap, with a further sheltered seating area and there is an off-road parking space and 2 small outbuildings for storagage. Pretty, established shrubberies bring interest and calm and there is ample scope for dining/entertaining spaces.

Oil fires the Rayburn and there are night storage heaters to the bedrooms. Mains electricity, water and drainage.
