Property Description

Situated on C. 0.33 Acre plot, this charming grade II listed Thatched cottage offers great potential with planning permission for a rear extension.

Property Details

Swiss Cottage was built in C. 1850 as a summer house by Lord Barrington of Beckett Park, who wanted to replicate the honeymoon accommodation that he had previously enjoyed in Switzerland. As a result this grade II listed detached, thatched cottage offers an abundance of original features including cut timber to brick walls, diamond glazing throughout, a galleried landing and gabled thatched roofing.

The property occupies a C. 0.33 Acre plot which includes a private driveway, a well-manicured front garden, an out-building and a number of sheds.

The cottage is situated within the Vale of the White Horse and is next to what was known as the Royal Military College of Science.

Uniquely, the Lilliput Lane model ‘Woodmans Retreat’ is actually based on Swiss Cottage, and it also features in the 1982 ‘English Cottages’ publication by Candida Lycett Green.

Planning Permission P19/V2091/hh has been granted for a new linked extension building to the rear of the existing structure. The current plans intend to provide a new master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom on the ground floor, and a living/dining/kitchen area with an external sunken patio on the lower ground floor. Full details of the application can be viewed by looking on the council website
