THIS four-bedroom cottage is on the market for £900,000 - and comes with planning permission to build another house in the back garden.

Nether Water Cottage is a detached house in the village of Hinton Parva with large gardens that back onto open countryside.

Plans and drawings for the separate dwelling can be viewed in the planning section of Swindon Borough Council's website using the code S/19/0821.

The spacious accommodation includes an entrance hallway, large open plan lounge and dining area, with two period fireplaces. There is a fitted kitchen, with range style cooker, a further snug,aa home office, a utility and a cloakroom on the ground floor.

The first floor features four double bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is a large loft space that has been part-converted and offers scope to further improve - the estate agent suggests that it could be used as an office for homeworkers. The loft itself has enough space to add a further large bedroom with en-suite bathroom, subject to the usual permissions.

The windows are fully double-glazed, the central heating is oil-fired and there is a septic tank.

The plot of land the house is built upon is surrounded by fields and will have its own private access added as part of the planning. The property will offer approximately 199 square metres of internal living space.

Hinton Parva is a village lying at the foot of the Lambourn Downs below The Ridgeway and between Wanborough and Ashbury, with Swindon six miles away.
