About this property

  • Ivy Cottage is a mid-terrace Grade II listed cottage of mid-18th century origins with later alterations.

    Hornton stone construction under a pitch Stonesfield slate covered roof.

    On the market for the first time in almost 30 years, the property is in need of comprehensive modernisation. The proximity to transport links and amenities heightens its appeal.
    Various period features include open fireplaces, kitchen range, exposed timbers, leaded lights, window seats, exposed floorboards and flagstone flooring.

    Formerly two cottage since linked to create one dwelling, yet retaining both staircases. The majority of rooms enjoy dual aspect.

    Generous first floor artist's studio offers scope for alteration not create another bedroom and en suite bathroom, subject to the relevant consents.

    Mezzanine bedroom area above offers scope too for teenagers or office area.

    The gardens lie to the rear and whilst these have remained untouched for some time, there is no doubt these could greatly enhance the property with some care and attention.

    An additional benefit is a single car port access from a narrow village lane/track and from steps at the end of the garden. Having off road parking is an added bonus for a property of this age.

    The property commands an elevated edge of village position above the green.

Ivy Cottage has such potential! I love the opportunity you have to create from this blank canvass. I think it could be a very exciting adventure to jump in to.
