An attractive period stone built thatched cottage centrally positioned in its 0.5-acre elevated plot offering huge potential for a new owner to create a wonderful semi-rural property.

Myrtle Cottage is packed full of character and charm and would now benefit from some modernisation. The house sits in a fabulous plot that is easily accessible on the east side of highly sought after Hamstead Road. Nestled in beautiful coastal countryside and as such it’s been designated as being within the ANOB (Area of Outstanding natural Beauty). There are plenty of breath-taking walks from your doorstep to the coastal footpath that circumnavigates the whole Island and leads direct to Newtown to the East and Yarmouth to the West.

This pretty period cottage is not Listed and sits within a spacious plot of around 0.5 acres which is mainly laid to lawn with a parking area to the front leading to a detached garage. There is a useful footprint of detached outbuildings in the grounds, which would now require replacement due to their condition. The property has not been to the market for decades and offers a new owner a very special opportunity to own a ‘chocolate box’ stone cottage which offers potential to be enlarged (subject to obtaining necessary consents). The cottage has been well maintained and has two good sized bedrooms on the first floor and a further study/bedroom on the ground floor. There is an impressive fireplace on the ground floor and at some stage an extension has been constructed to the rear, which has delivered a good-sized room for a kitchen/diner. A separate, formal dining room is located on the south side of the ground floor which enjoys a double aspect over the attractive garden to the front and side.
