Bay Tree Cottage is a delightful period mid terrace cottage, presenting traditional weather board elevations at the front and mellow brick and tile hanging at the rear, under a hipped and pitched tiled roof housing a pretty dormer to the front.
Internally, the cottage retains a number of original features including beams and timbers, inglenook fireplace, open stud-work, exposed brick-work and a part vaulted ceiling on the 2nd floor. It provides charming accommodation on three floors, and offers scope for modernisation/updating. There are surprisingly good ceiling heights and levels of natural light for a cottage of this age. There are pretty views from the first floor over the gardens at the rear and the High Street at the front.
At the front of the cottage, there is a traditional picket fence and gate, giving access to a low maintenance crazy paved area. The south facing garden at the rear is securely fenced giving peace of mind to pet owners. It comprises a good range of mature flowering shrubs and plants, with a pathway, meandering through the borders, to a brick built outhouse at the rear.
Situated in the heart of the town, the property offers instant access to shops and amenities. Although no private parking is provided, it should be noted that there is short term parking on the High Street and there are several (free of charge) car parks in Cranbrook. There is a Right of Way at the rear of the terrace, leading to the High Street.
The property offers ideal space for a first time buyer, down-sizers or as a cosy pied à terre or holiday let.
