The unique opportunity to acquire a comfortable, characterful cottage in stunning surroundings. Thought to be a 1920s head nurseryman's cottage, Pine Craig nestles in its own extensive grounds of over half an acre, affording privacy and providing a haven for wild birds (nuthatches, a bullfinch pair and a woodpecker are regular visitors). There are wraparound views.

The south-facing garden is fully stocked with a beautiful choice of plants and shrubs and provides interest all year round. At the rear of the property is an additional low-maintenance garden which has a rock face wall, wildlife pond and patio. In total there are three sheds, of which one has power supply, as well as a coal bunker. Stone steps ascend to the main lawn and the woodland. There is a driveway to the front providing off road parking for at least two cars and access into the garage which has a remote controlled up-and-over door, lighting and overhead storage.
