Glen Cottage enjoys a corner plot, just off the High Street in Mayfield, with views across South Street to the valley beyond. The property is in need of updating and modernising throughout, but also has unique options to both extend to form four bedrooms, an en-suite and modify the ground floor to add a utility room and cloakroom, as well as add another three bedroom property to the side, should one so wish.
Currently one accesses the property via a gated path from Holders Lane, with double doors into a lobby, and a further door into the hallway, with a window to side and steps up to the first floor.
There is a bay fronted sitting room, with a feature gas fireplace and second window to side. Behind is a dining room, with a window to side and former fireplace.
Adjacent is a kitchen, which formerly formed a kitchen, cloakroom and store, but has been opened up by the current owners. There are two windows to rear and a further window to front, as well as a rear door to the garden. The kitchen comprises a range of white cupboards and drawers, with black worktops, sink with drainer, cooker, and space for further appliances. There is also a wall mounted boiler and doors to an under stairs cupboard.
The first floor provides an open landing, with a window to side and door to an airing cupboard, as well as loft access (not inspected). The main bedroom is a lovely room, with a bay window to front with the views, and a further window to side.
The second bedroom is to the rear, with a window to side, and the third bedroom is a single room to the front. The shower room is to the rear, with a corner shower cubicle, WC and basin, part tiled walls, heated towel rail and window to rear.
Outside, there is garden to three sides, with a paved raised patio, complete with a walled border, a rear brick and timber shed and raised flower bed. To the side is a small pond, lawn and the access path from Holders Lane, plus a further front lawn mature shrubs and hedge border reaching around to the front of the property.
