General Remarks - 18 Lower Down is a former estate workers cottage which provides excellent scope for a comprehensive scheme of renovation and modernisation which will provide an attractive family home or investment opportunity.

It now stands in large, private grounds of approximately 0.55 of an acre with a grass paddock at the front and good sized gardens which require landscaping.
