Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
A detached two bedroom character cottage with huge potential in a wonderful rural location, set in approx. 2 acres with a further 4 acres and a barn available.

Lot 1 - The cottage sits in a delightful position at the western end of the Marshwood Vale surrounded by open farmland, with wonderful views in every direction. The cottage certainly dates back to the 19th century but is probably older and was extended in the 20th century. Subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents the property could potentially be substantially extended. It should be noted that this property is not Listed.

The cottage is simply laid out with a good-sized sitting room with inglenook style fireplace to one end. The kitchen is equipped with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards. A Stanley range sits to one side with an everyday dining table in the centre. On the ground floor there is a second bedroom and a bathroom. The principal bedroom is on the first floor with an en-suite shower room off. The Stanley is oil fired and heats both the cottage and the hot water.

Agent's Note: a public footpath runs down the western boundary of the land.

The gardens are a particular feature of the property and are enclosed by a mixture of hedge and fencing and are, for the most part, laid to lawn. There is a variety of herbaceous and shrub plantings and an attractive wildlife pond. To the back of the cottage is a substantial area of driveway laid to stone chippings which provides parking and turning for a number of cars. Beyond is a paddock, currently down to pasture, with a tree lined boundary at the end.

Lot 2 - Agricultural barn of block and timber construction with external measurements of 5.5 m x 15 m with secure gates on to the lane.

Lot 3 - 4 acres of pasture land enclosed by mature hedge.
