A very pretty 3 bedroom semi-detached Victorian cottage with some later additions, situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty on a peaceful lane just before the village green and open farmland. No onward chain.

Ashampstead village is noted for its rural tranquillity, and is one of the most sought after in this part of the world. It is also in the catchment area for The Downs School which is Ofsted rated Outstanding.

The cottage has lots of potential for improvement to include the kitchen, breakfast room/study and utility room which at the moment are separated into 3 rooms, but could be opened up into one large kitchen/breakfast room, subject to building regulations.

The rear garden is entered by way of a 5-bar gate with hard standing but it might be possible to remove the two garden stores and construct a carport/garage at the bottom of the garden subject to LAPP.

No traffic really comes through Ashampstead unless visiting someone or something in the village and it is a wonderful location to enjoy the many footpaths and bridle paths. The cottage is within walking distance of the now famous Casey Fields farm shop with its fabulous butcher, fishmonger, greengrocer, delicatessen and coffee shop.
