A unique former coach house occupying a generous plot and with scope for enlargement or redevelopment, subject to the necessary planning consents and permissions being obtainable. Milnwood Cottage was originally the coach house for the large house, Milnwood, which is on the corner of North Parade and was converted to a dwelling in the middle part of the last century. Now in need of modernisation and improvement, the property in our view, has enormous potential to be either enlarged or perhaps demolished in favour of larger new home. The current accommodation comprises an entrance hall, two large reception rooms, dining room with lean-to sun room off, and there is a small kitchen and bathroom. Most of the ground floor has attractive oak parquet flooring. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, both of which are of a good size. All of the windows have been double glazed over the years and there is a modern gas fired boiler providing heating and hot water. What is of particular note is the outside space, the large garden offering a host of opportunities and there are two vehicular driveways with drop kerbs, one of which provides access to a garage.
Offers are being sought by the vendor's sole agents, Courtney Green.
