This 18th century home, Woodcote Cottage, is the cottage incarnate, albeit with an extensive modern extension that complements the original building perfectly. It is a seamless blend of old and new.
It is absolutely stunning and located in on the edge of the Hamstead estate in Yarmouth. It is Grade II listed, located within an area of outstanding natural beauty and with grounds extending to approximately 1.5 acres. Plus, there is the added bonus of tip-top sea views stretching across The Solent and to the mainland beyond.
Outside Woodcote Cottage, there is a detached garage, mature and well-kept gardens with some fine oak trees and a formal lawn at the front. There is also a pretty terrace on the southern facade.
Woodcote Cottage sits in a large and peaceful plot that teems with wildlife. In addition, it is understood to have possessory title of a further section of woodland, comprising roughly an acre.
The accommodation includes four bedrooms, three with super sea views, a large family bathroom, sizeable kitchen breakfast room, shower room, study, utility room, sitting room and a large store room. Leading into the cottage is a pretty and practical porch.
Over the past few years the current owners have undertaken a sympathetic modernisation programme and this has resulted in a very attractive home with flexible living accommodation and, if required, there is income potential for part of the house.
A recently lapsed planning permission allowing for a major alteration to the property, together with a detached garage/outbuilding, could be renewed or altered.
Woodcote Cottage is a great home with a great tale to tell. It is set in magnificent surroundings on the edge of the Hamstead Estate, which was once owned by John Nash.
Nash was one of the most fashionable and influential architects of the Regency period, as well as a friend of the Prince Regent, and the man believed to have designed Woodcote Cottage, the only surviving cottage of this era on the estate.
