Fern is a two bedroom cottage on the edge of Morebath, set in a small surrounding garden with private parking and outstanding south facing rural views. Formerly the Almshouses for the village, the money was gifted in 1688 by John Brooke to create two independent lower rooms for villagers with a chamber over for use as a school house. Now in need of internal renovation, the project provides an exciting opportunity to instil further historic character.ACCOMMODATION
A front door to the side of the property enters into the large kitchen (formerly one Almshouse) with a simple range of base and wall units and space for freestanding electric appliances. Open staircase to the upper floor. Door through to the good sized dining room (formerly the second Almshouse) with storage cupboards, alcove inset with the oil fired boiler and glazed double sliding doors to the side garden. From the kitchen a sliding door accesses the large double aspect sitting room with its fabulous views across the valley to the south. A large picture window and glazed double sliding doors make this a light and airy room with an extraordinarily deep fireplace inset with an old log burning stove. There is direct access to the garden and beneath the carpet is a parquet wood floor.
Upstairs a landing gives access to the larger bedroom with amazing views over the fields to the south. There are many storage cupboards in the roof voids and over the staircase. The second bedroom is smaller but has a wash basin and more storage cupboards. On the landing is an airing cupboard and further storage. The bathroom has an electric shower and screen over the bath.OUTSIDE
