Marcassie Cottage is a delightful extended traditional cottage constructed of painted stone under a slate roof and is a wonderful family home of considerable charm and character.

On the ground floor, a glazed door opens into a light reception hall with stairs to the first floor. To the left is a charming sitting room with a wood burning stove surrounded by a timber mantle, ceiling beams and a door out to the garden. Directly opposite the sitting room is a spacious dining kitchen which has a good range of wall and floor units, a wooden worktop and an oil fired AGA. From here access is gained to a further hallway. Directly ahead is a light and airy dining room with fine views across open fields. Adjacent to the dining room is a good sized bedroom/study and opposite this is a shower room. A utility room completes the ground floor accommodation. The stairs lead up to the first floor landing which has a number of excellent storage cupboards. To the right is the master bedroom which being double aspect is wonderfully light and is also generous in size. There are four further bedrooms, all of which are of a good size and have built in cupboards. A family bathroom completes the accommodation.

Overall, Marcassie Cottage is a wonderful family home with many fine features one of which is its light and welcoming atmosphere. The property benefits from oil central heating and is primarily double glazed.

Outside, the house sits in extensive grounds which extend to about an acre. The grounds include a delightful garden with a large lawn, timber decking, mature flower beds and borders and various mature trees and rhododendrons. There is also a useful timber garage (5m x 3.5m), a wood store and private parking on a gravelled driveway.
