Lounge area has the benefit of a very efficient multi fuel burner with glass fronted doors. Looks fantastic when burning logs and generates lots of heat.
Cottage has telephone cable to telegraph pole in adjacent lane. It has never been connected to a service provider as we do not stay long enough to justify it.

Fantastic benefit to those wishing to start living in property is that included with sale are the internal furniture. A detailed list can be drawn up at time of sale.

Note Fosse Septic was installed in 2000 and has worked without problems since. It had an official inspection in 2012 and a report issued with corrective actions required to bring it up to latest standards. The report is held by Notaire. The selling price reflects the need to carry out remedial work to fosse, in fact it has been reduced in excess of cost to totally replace fosse.
