Malt Cottage

Probably dating back over 100 years and not a Listed Building, this tile-hung detached cottage is a level walk from the centre of the town. It is hidden away, approached along a short pathway and set behind historic buildings on Angel Street. What you cannot see is a lovely old-walled garden that has a view to the Shimmings Valley. 

In the same ownership for many years, Malt Cottage now needs refurbishment and we can see a buyer re-planning the interior, perhaps creating an "upside-down" designer-home, that could feature a stunning open-plan first floor living area with its wide rear window area.  From this room an iron stairway leads down to the 60ft-plus garden. 

There's plenty of space for new bathrooms on both floors and the large rear room downstairs would make a tranquil sitting room and study/home office, opening out onto the lower terrace. (Alterations subject to consents)

"With an ever-diminishing supply of this type of property, chances like this are rare indeed."
