Church Cottage stands in the centre of the pretty village of Swynnerton which has retained an excellent community spirit and is ideally situated for access to the larger surrounding towns and also the beautiful North Staffordshire countryside. The village is particularly noted for the excellent Fitz Herbert Arms, to which people travel from quite some distance.
The property stands in a secluded location away from the road along a private drive between the parish church and the church rooms.
There is a small lawned front garden and steps up to the porch from where a door opens into the Kitchen. The Kitchen has windows looking out to the front of the cottage and towards the church. There are fitted units to two walls that incorporate a built in slimline dishwasher and an electric oven and hob. There is space for a breakfasting table and an original fireplace with a timber mantle over. A door from the Kitchen opens into the Lounge, this comfortably sized room has an impressive original fireplace which is fitted with a log burning stove and is large enough to accommodate a dining table when required. Again there is a very pleasant outlook towards the church and a turned staircase rises to the first floor. A small hallway gives access to a guest cloakroom and the back door from where there are steps down to the rear yard.
On the first floor there is a landing which has exposed roof timbers from where doors open to two bedrooms and the shower room. The master bedroom is a pleasant room with double built in wardrobes, whilst the second bedroom is a good sized single room which also has built in wardrobes. The Shower room has been recently re fitted with a smart white suite that includes a double shower, basin and w/c.
The enclosed yard provides an outdoor area that requires little maintenance and has been enjoyed by the current owner. There are two useful storage sheds and the oil tank within the yard.
There is parking for the property within the parking area associated with the church rooms, and drainage is to a septic tank within the yard that is shared by the attached cottage. Domestic central heating and hot water is provided by an oil fired boiler.
Purchasers should note that there is a flying freehold, whereby the bathroom belonging to the attached property is above the rear portion of the kitchen of Church Cottage.
