Full Description

This beautifully presented recently modernised 'Green' detached cottage comprises of 3/4 double bedrooms, 1/2 reception rooms a kitchen/dining room, a separate shower room and large bathroom. Fully double glazed uPVC windows all round with triple glazing to the front.

The large garden (approx 1/2 acre) sites a double garage and garden shed (both fully powered) also a greenhouse as well as large wood stores.

This property also boasts a 4kw Solar PV system which generates an income of over £1300 a year at the higher rate Feed-in tariff and therefore produces an energy surplus. Additionally the central heating system is powered using a biomass wood pellet boiler. Again this produces an extra annual income of around £2500 in RHI payments.

The entire property has recently had 80mm Kingspan insulation boarding fitted between the external stone walls and plasterboard. This insulation along with the fitted Biomass boiler improves this property's EPC rating from a D 59 to a C 72.
