York Cottage is a substantial south facing detached house built in the 1920's of pebble dashed rendered elevations with stone quoins with matching additions and later alterations. The current vendors have owned the property since 1981. York Cottage has oil fired central heating to the main house and annexe (individual boilers to both), double glazing in part, Travertine floors in the hall, cloakroom and kitchen/dining room and multi-fuel stoves in the three reception rooms. There is a self-contained ground floor annexe which is suitable for a number of uses subject to the usual consents. Most rooms enjoy sunny south and south westerly aspects to local landmarks to take full advantage of the stunning views such as Knighton, Batcombe Hill, Melbury Bubb and Lodge Hill beyond.
