A gate from here leads through to the garden which, like the house (as you can see from the photographs) is fantastically presented with large artificial grass area to the centre and a paved patio to the left as you enter. There is a great selection of flower a shrub borders and features. Ample space for sun beds and al-fresco dining, whilst to the end a second paved patio area leads to the annexe.

Off Scotts Hill Lane, is a brick paved driveway which provides off road parking for two cars albeit that the right-hand space is for a shorter car.
The front door of the house come directly to the street, whilst between the parking and the door is a gated pathway, shared with two of the neighbours, which provides a separate access point dividing the cottage and the annexe with the garden in between, as has previously described.
AGENTS NOTE: The house and the cottage combined can and has been a great ‘home and income’, or for holiday letting or even a longer-term tenancy for either part.
As an investment property, letting both parts for ‘holiday’ style letting we believe will be a great opportunity. Being freehold (no service charge), the fantastic presentation from the current owner, the quirky nature of the accommodation, the great location, garden and parking will make this particularly popular (as it has been in the past) on the likes of ‘Airbnb’ and similar so should generate an excellent return.
