5 Bedroom
'Keepers Cottage' is a unique, FIVE BEDROOM detached COTTAGE with DOUBLE timber garage and cart lodge, occupying woodland grounds extending to approximately 1.25 ACRES (subject to land survey),
and located on the periphery of Great Totham.
The current dwelling (formerly two 1920's built cottages), is set within wooded grounds which constitute a part of South Woods. The property offers a fascinating mix of individual rooms and, if required, future potential to adapt and extend (subject to planning permission).
To one side of the cottage is a substantial circular access drive and very impressive timber DOUBLE garage and cart lodge. The majority of the plot extends from the opposite side of the cottage, and
includes many tree specimens as well as a formal garden area.
A viewing of Keepers Cottage is essential to appreciate the distinctive accommodation,
semi rural location and wonderful setting.
