Description

THE OLD COTTAGE

The Old Cottage conjures up romantic thoughts of a bygone age but still to be found within easy commuter reach of the City of London (see attached route plan to South Croydon BR and filed plan). A 2 minute walk to the popular Harrow Inn gastro pub with outside dining too in the Summer. A perfect escape form the toils and stresses of urban life. It was built over 350 years ago and was originally a 2 bedroom cottage in Farleigh which, in those days, was a small hamlet. It has been enlarged in recent years but has retained its original character.

The Property

THE OLD COTTAGE

The Old Cottage conjures up romantic thoughts of a bygone age but still to be found within easy commuter reach of the City of London. A 2 minute walk to the popular Harrow Inn gastro pub with outside dining too in the Summer. A perfect escape form the toils and stresses of urban life. It was built over 350 years ago and was originally a 2 bedroom cottage in Farleigh which, in those days, was a small hamlet. It has been enlarged in recent years but has retained its original character.

The Cottage was the Laundry for the local inhabitants. Rumour has it that the last man arrested for sheep stealing met his demise at the end of the garden which is about 1/3 of an acre and backs on to picturesque fields and woodland.

Golfers will enjoy a private golf club right on their doorstep and the Harrow Inn is a popular bistro pub with outdoor spaces overlooking paddocks and fields.

Within a short walk is the National Trust's Selsdon Wood and Nature Reserve (also known locally as the Selsdon Bird Sanctuary).

The current owners moved into the Cottage 23 years ago in 1995 and whilst keeping a lot of the original building, over a period of years, carried out major renovations resulting in central heating, double glazed windows throughout, 4 double bedrooms, 4 shower/ bathrooms/ and separate WCs, as well as a double garage.

The large garden was divided into two about 4 years ago, leaving an attractive garden and a large children's play area suitable for, for example, football, badminton, archery, climbing frames for children.

Commuters can take nearby buses or cycle to South Croydon station (about 15 minutes by bus) which is 3 minutes to East Croydon main line station for a 17 minute non stop journey into central London. East Croydon also has fast links to Gatwick Airport.
