Property Ref: 53430


An outstanding opportunity to purchase a most attractive, Victorian three bedroom cottage forming part of a iconic row of three period homes built by the local builder and historian Edward Vincent Methold in 1894 on the corner of Church Lane and Walkern Road, conveniently situated within the heart of the Old Town Conservation area, just a short stroll to an array of amenities along the Historic High Street.

This unspoilt cottage sits well back from the road behind an established, usable generous lawned front garden with the advantage of a practical paved courtyard style rear garden with a useful brick built store/utility room.

Whilst the property would benefit from a degree of modernisation, the property retains an abundance of original features including all six of the original fireplaces, internal doors and brassware.

The accommodation currently comprises a wide welcoming reception hallway with a total of three storage cupboards, one of which could be converted for use as a downstairs cloakroom/wc (subject to Building Regulations approval), lounge with a square bay window, separate dining room, kitchen, first floor landing leading to three bedrooms, two of which are excellent double rooms and a most spacious bathroom. Further practical benefits include gas fired central heating and double glazing. Viewing highly recommended.
