About this property

  • 4 Bell Lane is a period stone property with slate roof, understood to date back to 1850. Originally a detached cottage, a further stone, period building was then added to it providing additional flexible accommodation. The property now offers the opportunity for a substantial refurbishment project with versatile accommodation.

    The original cottage comprises a reception room with inglenook fireplace, featuring a woodburner and original bread oven, exposed beams, stone floor and door to the garden. To the rear is a former kitchen area with Butlers sink. The first floor provides a flexible space with room for bedrooms and a bathroom at the rear, which currently has a toilet and basin. There was formally a second floor with a room in the attic and there is potential to reinstate this.

    Adjoining the original cottage is an additional building which could have potential to be combined into part of the main house, subject to any necessary planning permissions. It currently comprises a ground floor room and stairs leading to a first floor room.

    To the front of the property is off road parking and a garden area, as well as a brick garage and stores. Accessed via a side path is a rear lawned garden.

4 Bell Lane offers a rare chance to transform a period property in a thriving village. I think it's an exciting opportunity.
