Full description

* GRADE II Listed PERIOD COTTAGE circa 1851 requiring some renovation works with large garden* A character three-bedroomed / three storey end terraced cottage, originally part of the nearby brickworks of about 1790. The cottage, made of large jumb bricks, now has two small garages (storage) at ground level with living accommodation above. Originally, the ground floor provided brick-drying sheds used to allow the bricks to dry before firing in the kilns, and the upper floors consisted of a series of inter-connected rooms used as weaver sheds. The accommodation now comprises: a breakfast kitchen, lounge, utility room, walk-in pantry, cloakroom, downstairs bathroom, bedrooms one and three on the first floor, and bedroom three on the second floor. The cottage benefits from a large lawned garden to the side with a brick outhouse, working outside toilet, a timber shed and an aluminium-framed greenhouse.

The Location - MEASHAM is a small village within three miles of Ashby and has seen a number of significant improvements in the facilities and amenities over recent years. It now boasts a health centre, a library, and several new housing developments have been built on the outskirts of the village. The National Forest is easily accessible and provides many pleasant walks for visitors and local residents. The heart of the forest is the Conkers Visitors Centre which offers woodland walks and is a useful source of information on the local flora, fauna, and past history of the area.
