The Old Cottage is an oak-framed and local brick property built in 1776 with later extensions added and lies in the heart of the village of Barcombe.
The property was in a considerable state of disrepair when purchased by the current owner in 2011.
The extent of renovation works required provided an ideal opportunity to dramatically upgrade the energy performance of the whole building and to improve the internal environment to make it a comfortable and healthy house to live in.
On the ground floor there is an open plan kitchen/ dining room, with additional morning room.
There is a separate living room as well as a study.
Furthermore there is a downstairs WC, shower and a utility room.
Upstairs there are three spacious double bedrooms.
There is an additional single bedroom and a family bathroom.
To the rear of the property there is a charming, well-tended garden, with trees, shrubbery, a feature well, as well as a patio area for potted plants and dining.
The attention to detail is striking.
It is rare to find such a sympathetic renovation – true to the property’s character but bringing a 21stC awareness of the need to be environmentally responsible and conserve energy through reducing consumption.
The delivery of this high-quality refurbishment demonstrates that the beauty and historic character of traditional buildings can be maintained while achieving high standards of thermal performance and comfort.
Price is £725,000.
