Charming character cottage with great potential set in mature gardens of around 0.6 acres.
Martyns Platt is thought to date back to the early 17th century and is steeped in history, it was an ale house at the beginning of the century. It was then the home of a skilled wood carver and cabinet maker Charles Payne who has adorned the cottage with some charming panelling and detailing all in seasoned English oak. The overall accommodation is both flexible and well proportioned and retains many fine original features, with fantastic potential to improve and modernize to a buyers taste.
Downstairs the accommodation consists of kitchen/breakfast room, large sitting room with stunning inglenook fireplace and a good sized dining room with views over the garden to the rear. There is also a useful study/family room with a charming bay window.
The first floor consists of three good sized bedrooms, with a family bathroom.
The property sits in established gardens with many mature trees and plants. There is a large detached garage, with ample driveway parking. The property also benefits from a large outbuilding with power and water which would be ideal for conversion into an annex or home office, subject to the usual consents.
NB. The property is accessed with a right of way from the A22. The land next to the driveway is owned by Godstone Parish Council and rented by the current owner. The property has private drainage.
