The Property Believed to date back to Victorian times, this brick-built semi-detached cottage has been enhanced, both visually and economically, by external insulation and oak cladding to the front elevation. The rear walls have also been timber panelled with a grey exterior paintwork finish and the roof is concrete tiled while the rear wings have flat roof sections. The first-floor landing has a Juliette balcony via a large tilt and turn double glazed window with some spectacular panoramic views over the garden and farmland which stretches away towards the coast. There is the potential to form a large balcony over the rear single-storey wing subject to planning/building regulation consent and a metal balustrade will be included in the sale for such a project.
Heating is by an oil central heating system with the boiler positioned externally and there is also a cast iron multi-fuel stove in the beamed sitting room. The large living/dining kitchen is a particular feature of this cottage with an extensive range of furniture by Murdoch Troon and appliances. The accommodation has a welcoming feel and viewing is recommended.
Adjacent to the neighbouring cottage on the south side, Romando has an old timber garage with a parking forecourt and the owners have commissioned initial drawings for a planning permission pre-application seeking a solid-built garage/annexe with studio or home office over. The proposed purchasers may wish to further investigate according to their own particular wishes. In addition, there is space to park on the gravel forecourt in front of the cottage.
