3 Hilton Cottage is a C-Listed mid-terraced sandstone cottage under a slate roof. The property was built in circa 1825 and forms part of a single storey terrace comprising of 4 symmetrical double-fronted 3-bay cottages. The cottages are assumed to have been built for farm workers at the nearby Hilton Farm. The current owners have overhauled and extended this charming cottage to provide character accommodation over two floors. Of particular note is the oak beam extension to the rear providing a wonderful kitchen/dining/family with French doors leading onto the patio and garden beyond. The reception rooms to the front of the property both have woodburning stoves, exposed brickwork and the continuation of exposed oak beams. One of the reception rooms could be used as a second bedroom. The attic conversion is a triumph providing substantial space at first floor level with fine views across the surrounding countryside. The accommodation comprises:
Entrance hallway. Living room with woodburning stove. Bedroom 1/ Reception room 2. Under stair storage cupboard. Kitchen/ breakfast bar/dining room/family room with French doors leading to a large patio and on to the garden. Bathroom with double showering unit, WHB, WC and space for utilities.
