My how times change. It seems only yesterday that petrol was three gallons to the pound, and now one is lucky to find it for £5 for a gallon!
Oh for the simple days of horse and cart, when all you needed was a supply of pastureland, hay or fodder and somewhere to store your cart!
Unfortunately that dream is a lifetime away, and is but a memory for most.
However, with a bit of imagination and the wonders of modern building techniques you could enjoy part of that lifestyle in the purchase of this converted stable and coach yard.
Built of brick and flint under a pitched clay tiled roof, originally to serve the adjacent farm house which dates from the 1730’s, this building was converted into a residential dwelling just after the Second World War.
Over time the cottage has undergone a variety of changes, modernised to suit the various periods.
But now we are into a new century and the accommodation has been improved once more, extended and modernised sympathetically to create something really special within the framework of this period building.
Surrounded by its own cottage gardens, approached through a private lane, through a 5-bar gate and into a gravelled courtyard, the cottage exudes a marvellous atmosphere, which the discerning buyer will be able to enjoy and appreciate.
Vaulted ceilings, open fires, and many original features all combine to make this property quite unique.
The agents, May’s, are quoting an asking price of £485,000 for this property, which has three bedrooms (one en-suite), one main reception room, a double glazed feature conservatory and a kitchen/diner plus bathroom/WC.
Outside is a large detached garage plus parking for a number of vehicles.
So if this is something you might like to ‘get you teeth into’, why not telephone May’s on 01243 841341 for an appointment to view. Perhaps this is one of those ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunities not to be missed?
