Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A much improved and modernised single storey detached residence with good sized private gardens and full planning permission for two additional bedrooms and a second bathroom.

Built in1866 as one of what was twelve estate workers cottages, constructed in the same unique "honey pot" design with a central chimney stack. The cottage was built for the Ashley Combe Estate, home of Ada Byron, the Countess of Lovelace and daughter of Lord Byron. The estate was owned by Ada's Husband, Lord William King, First Earl of Lovelace. Only five (possibility six) of these of cottages remain, so this is a rare opportunity with very interesting history.

The property offers well proportioned accommodation and has been improved by the current owners to include; re-fitted kitchen and bathroom, re- plambing, re-wiring, re-flooring and new electric wet system central heating.
This delightful and individual charming property also has full planning permission for an extension to provide two further bedrooms and a shower room.

The accommodation is arranged over one floor and in brief comprises; front entrance porch with door leading into the sitting room with front aspect window and fireplace. The modern fitted kitchen has a rear aspect window and matching base and wall units with work surfaces, sink and drainer, oven and hob and built in fridge. A door leads out from the kitchen into the rear porch which also has plumbing for a washing machine. The kitchen opens up into the dining area with fireplace and double doors lead to the master bedroom (currently used as a sitting room) with stove, exposed stone wall, exposed beams and front and side aspect window. The modern fitted bathroom has a three piece suite, rear aspect window and heated towel rail.

The property is approached off a country lane leading to the garage at the side of the property and excellent additional parking facilities. The attractive and private rear gardens are enclosed by fencing and hedging and predominantly laid to lawn with a variety of trees, flowers, shrubs, a compost area, timber shed and summerhouse.
