DESCRIPTION

Albert Cottage originally belonged to the Symondsbury Estate / Colfox family and the current owners acquired it from The Estate in 1957. It is estimated to date back over 150 years and has solid walls with rendered and colour washed elevations under a slate roof. Although well cared for as a family home over many years, general refurbishment is now required and the cottage offers excellent potential for a first floor rear extension and/or creating a first floor bathroom. There is electric heating (mains gas available in the road), replacement UPVC sealed unit windows/doors together with part hardwood windows and secondary double glazing and a recently installed large walk-in shower. Character style features include an open fireplace, cast iron fireplace, wood panelling and oak floor tiling in the sitting room (currently carpeted). There are lovely country views both to the front and rear. Further photographs are available on the internet.

OUTSIDE

There is a pleasant rear garden which is terraced. Immediately adjoining is a patio and a detached timber chalet/former birdhouse. Steps lead up to a high lawn together with raised beds.

SERVICES
