A beautiful and characterful cottage in the much sought after village of Borrowby. 

This home has been in the same family for over 40 years, there is plenty of character features to admire, from the original doors in parts of the home, along with a beautiful open fireplace. There is also wood panelling and exposed stonework features in numerous rooms.

The current owners are wanting to relocate so are reluctantly selling, they have started doing some updating of areas in the home and recently installed uPVC double glazing throughout the cottage.

This property would be exciting and rewarding for the right buyer, and would definitely fit the criteria of a 'Forever Home' with all the space and charm that is on offer in abundance.
