About this property:
Fernbank is close to the centre of the pretty village of Murton. The village has a gastro pub; chapel, village hall, children's playground, corner shop and farm shop, so you have everything you need on your doorstep. The cottage itself is off a private lane in a peaceful, rural setting. You enter the cottage on the ground floor into a bright open plan living room, kitchen, diner. A great sociable space for you and your family. The living room area has elegant sofas (photographs of the replacement sofas coming soon) arranged around a flat screen television. The contemporary kitchen has all mod cons and the dining table seats five, but should you prefer to dine al fresco french doors take you out to a courtyard with a BBQ and patio dining furniture.
There is a nice sized double bedroom on the ground floor, a real bonus if you have anyone with limited mobility in your party. The family shower room is on the ground floor with walk in shower, wash hand basin and W.C. Up the stairs, you come to a large landing area with a single bed and dresser for an extra guest should you need it. This room would only be suitable for a family member or close friend as you need to walk through it to access the adjacent master bedroom. The master bedroom has a king size bed and walk in wardrobe. Throughout the property the attractive white and cream colour scheme is very fresh and bright.
The cottage has access to a huge garden, we estimate that it is about two acres, so wonderful for children to play ball and explore. At the rear of the property there is allocated parking for two cars on a flat paved area, making the property very accessible for those of limited mobility.
