Open day this weekend will showcase stunning 16th century cottage

ROBINSON SHERSTON is to hold an open day tomorrow (Saturday, July 5) to showcase an outstanding Grade II-listed 16th century cottage. The detached house is of historical interest but has undergone comprehensive refurbishment to create a lovely period home in the centre of Watlington.

Elements of Dropmore Cottage are thought to be of medieval origin. These include the original timber frame that still forms a strong visible feature of the property, early wood panelling, exposed brickwork, 17th century doors and latches and period fireplaces, one of which now houses a log-burning stove.

The cottage has undergone a comprehensive programme of refurbishment over the past year with thought and consideration to the preservation and re-integration of original materials. The works undertaken incorporate new oak flooring, partial “Thindow” double glazing, wiring, plumbing and gas-fired central heating. Carefully chosen contemporary fixtures and fittings including a fully-fitted kitchen with granite worktops, a garden room with bi-fold doors and feature lighting create a very special and individual home. Accommodation includes a hallway, sitting room and garden/family room, a kitchen/breakfast room, three bedrooms and cloakroom/utility.

Of particular note is the striking master bedroom suite with dressing and shower room that is incorporated within the roof structure and occupies the entire second floor.

The property is well-placed for all the facilities of the town and is no more than a three minute walk from the High Street. An attractive garden lies to the rear and there is private parking alongside. There is a covered terrace of Indian sandstone slabs and recessed downlights.
