IMMACULATE CHARACTER COTTAGE NEAR VILLAGE CENTRE

REFURBISHED TO A HIGH STANDARD BY PRESENT OWNERS 

LARGE GARAGE WITH WIDE DOOR

SUMMERHOUSE AND BEAUTIFUL COURTYARD GARDENS

PLANNING PERMISSION APPLIED FOR GARAGE AND KITCHEN EXTENSIONS   


DESCRIPTION 

This immaculate and stunning character cottage is over 400 years old and was originally part of an inn that was converted into cottages in 1864.  Jasmine Cottage is not listed, and is set near the centre of Marden within easy walk of the shops, surgery, railway station etc. In 2000 the current vendors started a loving and very thorough refurbishment which has included all new stud walls, plastering, treatment of beams, re-wiring and insulated to a high standard throughout. There is also new double glazing throughout.  There are a number of delightful features such as the original fireplaces and original beams including a King Beam in the Sitting Room. The property benefits from a huge garage on which planning permission has been applied for involving a second storey extension with office above. The present owners have also applied for planning permission to extend the kitchen across the rear with orangery style roofing. The Planning officer has recommended both for approval. The house has gas fired central heating and a woodburning stove.  The courtyard garden is a real joy with a patio and arbour seating area at the rear, and a nearby water feature. The easily maintained borders with shrubs and plants set amongst textured decorative chippings. The double glazed summer house is only four years old and has an electric power point. These additions would compliment what is already a beautiful and historic home.
