A charming 16th century Grade II listed cottage providing bright and spacious accommodation, within walking distance of Marlborough's historic High Street.
Originally named Love Lane, George Lane was renamed after The George Inn which stood on the site opposite the cottage now occupied by the Catholic Church. Local legend says that when Oliver Cromwell stayed at the George Inn, the blacksmith opposite refused to shoe his horse, After 1653 an Act of Parliament prohibited thatched buildings in Marlborough, these cottages were allowed to retain their thatch as they were located just outside the centre. The cottages are believed to date from 1580 and retain much original character from that time.
We walk through the front door into a small hall with space for coats, doors left and right. We will turn left into the sitting room with a secondary double glazed window to the front and bay window to the rear. Original exposed beams and a stone built fireplace with an electric log effect stove. Across the hall and into the dining room with staircase rising to the first floor with cupboard under, window to the front and open plan into the attractive contemporary style kitchen. The kitchen overlooks the south facing garden, solid wood work-surfaces, underhung belfast sink, space for cooker with extractor hood over. Plumbing for dishwasher and washing machine, space for fridge freezer and a good range of storage cupboards. A door opens into a cloakroom with toilet and gas boiler for the central heating (new April 2018).
Back through the dining room and up the staircase to the first floor landing with some lovely exposed beams. First door on the left into the main bedroom with windows to the front and rear, exposed beams and built in wardrobes and storage. The second bedroom is also a double with windows to the rear and finally into the delightful bathroom with a modern contemporary style white suite, bath, sink, toilet and separate walk in shower.
