Broadleigh Cottage


Broadleigh Cottage is a lovely timber-frame cottage historically dating from the 17th Century, privately situated in the delightful and sought after village of Colwall.
An enclosed and generous porch leads into the good-sized entrance hall with a ground floor bathroom/WC and stairs leading up to the first floor.
The hall opens to the main reception room, a lovely double aspect room with inset wood burning stove.
The dining room is beyond the hall and leads to the adjacent kitchen. The kitchen has fitted units, ample cupboard storage and space for cooker and fridge, all being serviceable but would benefit from updating.
A door from the kitchen leads to the rear utility and "boot room", a great space for outdoor paraphernalia. There is a useful walk-in larder and the utility has space and plumbing for appliances.
To the first floor, a generous landing opens to four bedrooms and a family shower room. The main bedroom is a generous double room, there are two further double bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes/storage, and a single room (historically used as a home office).
A family shower room sits adjacent to the single bedroom.
There are a wealth of original exposed beams and timbers throughout the property.

Remedial Work

There are some specific remedial repairs and general maintenance works that have been identfied by structural survey and which will require further investment, in addition to the purchase price. The guide price has been reduced to reflect this work requirement. Please speak with the agent if you want further detail.

The Outside


The property is approached off Walwyn Road via a wide bell-mouth, shared with the neighbouring house. A double-gated entrance opens to the driveway, which in turn leads to the detached double garage and parking space.
A paved path from the garage leads to a large, sunken patio terrace in front of the property.
There is a generous garden area of 1/2 an acre, half is owned and half is available to rent off the neighbouring estate.
The manageable raised front garden is laid mainly to lawn, bordered by some mature trees, shrubs, and hedging, making this a very private and secluded with plenty of scope for keen gardeners. There is a small wildlife pond for added interest.
The sunny, patio terrace is a great, sheltered suntrap for alfresco enjoyment and entertaining.
There is a large rear garden, behind the garage which has been rented for many years. This garden area is enclosed by mature hedging and is private to Broadleigh Cottage and is available to rent on an ongoing, annual basis. This garden area is 1/4 acre.
