    About this property

    • Built in the late 1920's this is an extremely light house with well proportioned rooms throughout. Properties of this age offer a solidity of construction not found in more modern properties and some of the appealing period details remain. Furthermore when Beech Cottage was built garden sizes were much more generous and the whole plot totals approximately 0.3 of an acre. A number of refurbishments were carried out in 2003 and the current owners have maintained the property well.

      From the quiet village road, the house is approached via a tarmacadam driveway, with parking for several cars. There is an area of lawn with established borders and a mature Beech tree.

      Behind the house is a large and private garden which is again laid mainly to lawn with mature flower beds and a good workshop/store.

      From the front of the house there are lovely views of Marleycombe Hill.
