Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
Located within the popular settlement of Quidhampton, Melbourne is a four bedroom semi-detached former estate workers cottage, parts of which date to early 19th century, with well-proportioned accommodation, a generous plot and planning consent for a single storey rear addition.

Requiring some finishing, Melbourne has undergone an extensive programme of updating and improvement by the current owners which has included the creation of a full loft conversion, re-wiring, new boiler and recently refitted bathroom.

The original kitchen and dining room have been opened through to create a fabulous farmhouse style kitchen approximately 19' x 13' which could be further enlarged with the addition of the approved extension as shown (shaded yellow) on the floorplan. Much of the early character of the cottage has been retained including timber panelled doors, architraves, door casings and picture rails and some timber panelling. The cottage is mostly double glazed.

Immediately to the rear is a private walled courtyard with pedestrian access through to a large plot with patio, garden, waterside area, a vegetable plot with raised planters and a greenhouse, leading to a drive, garage and parking. Access to the drive is from Locks Lane, the bottom of the garden and the length of the drive borders a tributary of the river Nadder overlooking Boys Meadow Withybed.

Agents Note: A right of way exists over the drive and through part of the garden (which could be closed off) in favour of the adjoining property, Wellington, to access their garage.
