About the property

THE PROPERTY
May Cottage, 40 Barrack Row is one of seven terraced properties of brick elevations beneath a tiled roof, built in the 1820's; being part of the Bryanston Estate which came into the hands of the Portman family in the 1770's. Lord Portman built the Row for returning soldiers who had fought during the Napoleonic Wars. It is hard to imagine these 7 dwellings containing two families each as they did in the 1840's and 50's.

An end of terrace property with enormous charm and character and surprisingly spacious with period features including exposed ceiling timbers and inglenook fireplace. The entrance porch leads to a comfortable sitting room with parquet flooring, brick inglenook fireplace with tiled hearth and remnants of the old bread oven. Doorway through to kitchen with fitted floor and wall units, tiled flooring and splashback. Deep understairs storage cupboard. Half turn stairs lead to the first floor with a double sized bedroom and a capacious family bathroom; landing leading to stairs to the second floor with double sized bedroom in the eaves which is the full length of the house.

OUTSIDE
Shared brick path allows access to the front door as well as pedestrian access running along the front of all the properties. A wooden archway leads to the pretty garden with a central path leading to the parking and garage area, with mature flower and shrub borders on either side and an area of lawn. Tarmac parking area with brick walled entrance.
