A period property in a prime location - how much do you think this super cute cottage is worth then?
Well, colour me happy – ain’t this cottage just the prettiest you ever did see? Beautiful, charming, perfectly formed… this coquette of a cottage has it all. Don’t you just want to pick it up and pop it in your pocket?
So, you know what to do people – take a look at the pics below, and I’ll give you some tasty little hints so you can guess the price and claim your £1000 prize! Er, not really. We do this purely for the glory folks.
Right, shall we grab the keys and take a peek?
Mill Cottage is something of a hidden gem, tucked away down Spring Lane just outside Oxted. Location wise, it’s a pretty exclusive little spot with country walks right on your doorstep including the Greensand Way, and Oxted’s busy little town centre about a mile away. There, along with Oxted’s mainline railway station which will have you in central London in about 35 minutes, are all the shops, restaurants and amenities you could need, including a rather stylish Everyman Cinema. Hurt Green station is also quite near.
Originally built in the 1800s as a miller’s cottage, this house was partly rebuilt after bomb damage in 1949 – but rather excitingly it’s has recently undergone some major restoration. So you’re getting all the charm of a period property with all the convenience and style of contemporary remodelling.
Let’s take a shifty inside.
Through the wrought iron gate, down the stone path and through the front door, turn immediately off the hallway to the left and you’ll find an open plan kitchen breakfast room with charming features including exposed wooden flooring, wood burner fireplace, and exposed timber beams.
Just off the kitchen is a bootroom-cum-utility with space for a washing machine – a handy place to deposit muddy boots if you’ve been out on one of the nearby footpaths.
Across the hallway is a cosy living room, again with traditional features including a working traditional brick fireplace.
Just to throw you off kilter, the ground floor also features a spacious bathroom suite.
Upstairs there are three lovely double bedrooms, with views from the cute dormer windows over the gardens. There’s also a compact shower room.
Want to take a look outside for a few more clues? Follow me – you’re in for a little surprise.
There is a pretty cottage garden at the front and back of the house, with planted beds, hedging and a stone walls. A stone path leads to a wood store and a spacious studio/gym which has glass bi-fold doors and a heated oak timber floor. There’s also a large single garage with electric doors and car charging point.
Across the lane – and here’s comes your surprise – is the mill pond along with almost 3 acres of land which are also part of the property – so you will unfortunately have to buy a pony. Oh dear, that’s suddenly racked the cost up a bit.
Righto! Are you ready with your final figure? Get it set in your mind, argue it out with the cat (or whoever’s sitting next to you) and click here to see how close you got!
