A rather charming Grade II Listed attached cottage in need of modernisation and enjoying planning permission to extend to the rear and convert the roof space, all in a convenient and central position close to the centre of Mayfield, comprising three bedrooms, bathroom, main reception room with a large inglenook fireplace, kitchen, entrance hall and cloakroom, plus good sized front and rear gardens backing on to Court Meadow. NO CHAIN. EPC Rating: N/A.
Bough Cottage forms a rather wonderful character cottage, tucked just of Fletching Street, enjoying all the period features atypical of a Grade II Listed cottage, including exposed beams, bricks and the huge inglenook fireplace, yet mostly enjoying good ceiling heights.
There is the added benefit of the planning permission to extend, granted under ref: WD/2010/2387/F and ref: WD/2010/2387/LB to provide a glass rear extension at ground floor level, whilst altering the first floor to provide a further staircase to the attic conversion, which would comprise a master bedroom and en-suite. We are informed that this planning permission was deemed to have started, by the inclusion of a roof light to the attic back in 2010.
The whole cottage is now in need of modernisation, with general decor, kitchen and bathroom suites also required. It has been let for several years, so there are annual gas-safe reports and an electrical NICEIC report.
One accesses via the front garden, along a path with steps up to a front paved patio and the front door under a timbered porch.
The reception hall has the stairs to the first floor, panelled under stairs cupboard, window to side and a door to a cloakroom, housing a WC, basin and boiler, with a window to front.
The main reception room is a lovely room, with the vast inglenook fireplace and deep recesses to either side. There is a lovely window to front and two windows and part glazed door to the rear garden.
A door leads into the kitchen, with a window to side, window to and door to the rear garden. The kitchen currently comprises a range of cupboards and drawers, with a fitted sink and drainer, and space for various appliances.
The stairs lead up to a small landing, with a window to side, and loft hatch to the roof space, with a pull-down ladder.
The main bedroom is to the front, with a lovely outlook across the front garden, Fletching Street and the valley beyond. There is a fitted wardrobe and space for further wardrobes around the large chimney breast.
The second bedroom is to the rear, with an outlook over the rear garden and a basin to one wall. The third bedroom is very much a single, with a window to front and fitted cupboard to the recess. This room would provide the access to the attic conversion, if/when completed.
The bathroom provides a bath with shower over, WC and basin, towel rail and window to rear.
The front gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with a path and some flower beds and mature hedging borders. It is noted that the neighbouring property can access their rear door, if they so wish.
The rear gardens are private, with a gate on to Court Meadow to the rear, and mature hedge and fence boundaries. There is a good expanse of lawn, with a central paved patio, plus a sunken patio by the rear doors.
The property is located on Fletching Street, merely 200 yards from the sixteenth century beauty of the High Street.
