HISTORIC THATCHED COTTAGE! This charming 2 BED property is brimming with CHARACTER and has undergone beautiful refurbishment in its current ownership. Set in a good sized plot with ample DRIVEWAY PARKING and GARDEN space, this unique cottage lies in the popular hamlet of Norton Green, nestled in a valley on the outskirts of Freshwater village with the harbour town of Yarmouth just a few minutes away by car with its mainland ferry connections and yachting marina. Original parts of the cottage are reputed to date to the 1600's with the current kitchen being a 1700's addition and the bathroom & utility room being added later. The current owners have also built on the new conservatory which acts as decent lounge space leading out from the kitchen. The property’s character emits from the solid thick stone walls, quintessential “through room” layout and the lovely small paned windows. Other modern features include gas central heating & electric under floor heating, a newly refurbished kitchen, bathroom and utility area, a new thatch of August 2020 and general redecoration throughout in keeping with the property’s historic aesthetic.
Norton green is a popular and rural location, perfectly situated between the larger village of Freshwater and town of Yarmouth, where a whole host of amenities, transport links and shops are available. There are bountiful walks through the nearby countryside and the coast with paths connecting Yarmouth and Colwell bay. Properties in this location are highly sought after and rarely come to market so don’t miss out! Call “Wright Estate Agents” now on 01983 754455
