Lime Kiln Cottage is a detached, brick built house thought to have been originally constructed in the early 1900's. It occupies an elevated position on the corner of Church and Outgang Lanes. The property is approached by foot via Church Lane in the form of steps upto the front door, however vehicular access is off Outgang lane which runs along side the rear garden and offers a private drive with parking and an additional single garage. From here a footpath runs down the garden to the house.

Lime Kiln cottage was extended to its rear in the late 1990's and offers good sized accommodation over two floors. It has two main reception rooms to the front of the house with living flame gas fires; linked by an inner hall to access a ground floor shower room and its most appealing living kitchen. This room has, in recent years, been refurbished to offer a stylish fitted kitchen with integrated white goods and an area for dining with full height windows. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms with the master boasting a vaulted ceiling and a church-effect window looking up the garden. Both the house bathroom upstairs and the ground floor shower room have been only recently replaced with high specification suites.

The gardens to both the front and rear are predominantly down to lawn and there is an additional paved patio at the back of the house that links neatly to the double doors of the dining area.
