Borough Cottage is an attached cottage built we understand in the 1500's and is potentially one of the oldest houses in this popular village. As the name suggests, it was formerly located on the edge of the borough of Churchtown before it was Crowcombe. The cottage has been adapted over the years with inglenook fireplaces and elm boards added in the 1700s. More recently the cottage has been skilfully and sympathetically restored and now provides delightful accommodation of character, with high quality fittings. There is a stunning bespoke fitted kitchen with Rayburn and with double doors out onto the enchanting south facing gardens. There is a handsome inglenook fireplace in the sitting room and on the first floor the majority of the floors are original exposed elm boards. The property has the benefit of oil-fired heating.
Borough Cottage enjoys a delightful situation in the heart of this favoured village with good access to local amenities and facilities. There is a driveway providiing off-road parking and a garage. Mature Gardens enjoy a southerly orientation, are well enclosed and private, and there is an additional adjoining building.
