Feature Friday - Corey's Cottage





This beautiful detached Grade II listed home dates from the late 16th or early 17th Century and was originally the miller's house for Corey's Mill, a windmill which used to stand close by, and is one of the oldest buildings in Stevenage.







                                  

It boasts many attractive period features including fine exposed timbers and truly impressive brick chimneys. The large inglenook in the sitting room is particularly noteworthy and the fireplace in the dining room is also very handsome. The property offers considerable scope for updating and improvement, within the constraints of the listing and current offers three good sized bedrooms.     

The house nestles very pleasantly in its plot, which measures some 120' by 90' (36.66m x 27.5m) overall. The gardens surround the house, enjoy considerable privacy and are laid to lawns with a paved and walled patio, further paved patios, an arbour, herbaceous beds and borders and ornamental shrubs, conifers and trees, including a fine magnolia.

                                  

Gates open to the tarmac driveway which provides off-street parking and leads to the detached garage. The High Street of the Old Town is within a mile and the mainline railway station and new town centre are less than 2 miles away. Stevenage is on the East Coast mainline into London Kings Cross and the fastest services take just 23 minutes. The Old and New Towns of Stevenage provide a wide range of facilities, including excellent shopping, schools, restaurants, pubs and other leisure amenities.

 

Corey’s Cottage is an amazing home stepped in history, character and interesting stories so why not have a little read from Stevenage Borough Council by clicking the link: http://www.stevenage.gov.uk/about-stevenage/museum/47012/30115/30140/

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
