Estate agent Bagshaws Residential, in its listing on property website Zoopla, says the four-bedroom home on Main Street, Birchover, has been “finished to exacting standards throughout”.

It says a “recent restoration programme” has been completed on the stone-built cottage and gardens.

Highlights include a sitting room, dining room/second reception room and large dining kitchen on the ground floor, with four bedrooms, including one ensuite, and a family shower room on the first floor.

The main focal point of this room is the log-burning stove in set into the stone fireplace. The room has exposed beams over the door frames, painted beams to the ceiling and oak internal doors.

Outside is “a lovely landscaped garden to the front and a further courtyard style garden at the rear”.
