Attractive modernised period character cottage

This attractive extended period brick and flint cottage in Highleigh has recently undergone a significant programme of modernisation.


Hope Cottage is understood to date back to the mid-19th century and was probably a former stable building and subsequently converted into a residential dwelling.

The property, in Highleigh Road, is beautifully presented and has retained immense character throughout.

From the main entrance hall a staircase leads up to a superb master bedroom with open-plan en-suite bathroom with exposed wall and ceiling trusses.

Outside, the property is approached via a five-bar gate leading to a gravel driveway and area of parking with gardens of lawns and side and rear terraces.
