Offering good sized accommodation, arranged in a convenient layout over two floors, Glen Cottage benefits from an electric wet heating system, plus an impressive multi-fuel stove, in the lounge, providing a very comfortable home, in ’walk-in’ condition. The bright, modern, shower room is a most attractive feature, whilst the generous garden grounds may provide an opportunity for further expansion, subject to all the necessary planning permissions.
