East Cottage is a very attractive detached period home which was formerly the lodge to the neighbouring impressive country house Seaborough Court. The exact age is unknown but it is believed the cottage dates back some 500 years with later additions. The accommodation is well proportioned and many of the rooms enjoy far reaching views over the surrounding countryside and hills. Character features include exposed beams, inglenook fireplace with former bread oven, window seats, cottage doors and colour washed stone. There is the benefit of oil-fired central heating, replacement aluminium UPVC sealed unit windows, Oil-fired Aga and a solid pine painted kitchen with oil-fired Aga. Under the current ownership since 1972 the property has been generally well maintained, although is now in need of some updating.
The property also offers good parking, garage and a range of outbuildings and secluded well stock gardens.
East Cottage is approached through double metal gates onto a tarmac driveway with parking facilities.
