Cottage with garden & parking in private, central location
Abbotsford Cottage was originally the matron's house of the old maternity hospital next door (Southern Lodge) which dates from the 1800s. Southern Lodge is now a private dwelling and Abbotsford Cottage has been in separate ownership for many years.
The core of the house is the original, stone built wing which comprises a lovely drawing room with a bay window. An extension was added in the 1980s to the side and rear which provides the hall, bedroom and bathroom accommodation.
The accommodation now extends to over 1,100 ft2 which is all on one floor. The tiled entrance hall is bright and light with a fully glazed front and a cupola above. The inner hall has a coat cupboard and area for a dining table.
The drawing room has a stone fireplace with a stove and a bay window. Also off the hall is a linen cupboard and a bathroom. The kitchen is to the rear with a full wall of cupboards and a galley kitchen area with a sink and electric cooker. There is a door out to the drying green.
Bedroom 1 has a bay window to the west and a sliding door to a dressing room with built in cupboards. There is a long dressing table with a wash basin. Off this is a separate shower room. Bedroom 2 has a built in cupboard.
The original part of the house has a large roof void and there may be potential to reconfigure and extend the accommodation subject to obtaining all the necessary local authority consents.
The garden to Abbotsford Cottage lies mainly to the west of the house where there is a paved terrace and lawn. There are azaleas and a shrub bed. To the east of the house is a drying green outside the kitchen door. There is a lean to shed with felt roof in the corner.
