Lot 3: A unique opportunity to own a country cottage, with enormous potential to extend and modernise. 1/2 acre grounds with the addition of 2 fields totaling 11.62 acres available as a whole or by separate lots.

A superb opportunity to acquire an individual, characterful detached cottage standing in 0.24 acres of garden with 0.25 acres of paddock and extensive rural views.
The current internal layout at Coombe Cottage is challenging and a reflection of several extensions over the years. However, the space provided has huge potential to enhance and take advantage of the stunning views around the property.
With imagination the layout can be reconfigured to provide, on the ground floor a fabulous open plan kitchen/dining/living room perfect for modern living. Planning permission was granted in 2014 (now lapsed) to extend over the

carport and garage, to provide extra living space. Bifold doors could also be installed to take advantage of the extensive views.
There is also the option to apply for permission to incorporate the garage and carport with a large kitchen/breakfast room looking out to a new garden area created in the existing driveway. Subject to relevant permissions the driveway and garage could be relocated at the top of the garden.
The first and second floors would also benefit from reconfiguration to include opening up the north side wall with bifold doors where it may be possible to extend within the garden curtilage to make the most of the rural views.

To the front of the property a gravel driveway currently provides parking for several vehicles and access to the car port and garage. The secluded rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with a home office. Steps rise up to an additional paddock of 0.25 acres with uninterrupted panoramic views over rolling countryside.
