Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A COUNTRY SETTING, ABOUT 0.75 ACRE GROUNDS AND A DELIGHTFULLY CONVERTED HOP PICKERS COTTAGE all combine to make this a unique property. Well-presented and includes 2 bedrooms, open plan living area and a useful outbuilding. NB. THIS IS BEING SOLD AS A HOLIDAY HOME

This is a really good example of a 'hoppers hut' typical of those found in the 19th and early 20th centuries housing hop-pickers many of whom would have travelled down from London. This example has been fully renovated to provide a delightful single storey country cottage offering extremely well presented 2 bedroom accommodation, one with vaulted ceiling. The living area is open-plan, and again vaulted, with kitchen, dining and sitting areas including a fireplace with stove. The property is of single-skin brick construction with insulated and plastered internal walls, under a corrugated roof with closed boarding and insulation under. Subject to planning, it is felt the property offers scope for extension, if this is important to you we recommend making enquiries of the local authority.
Outside, the grounds are a delightful feature extending to about 0.75 acre mainly laid to lawn with parking and a useful timber outbuilding. The property adjoins woodland and offers a high level of privacy.
