Mile End Cottage is a gorgeous Grade 2 listed property, ideally located along the Topsham Road, just a short distance from the Milbrook village. The property is thought to date back to the mid 1800’s, offering an abundance of period features, including sash windows, fireplaces, wood panelling and exposed timberwork to the attic rooms. The property has been extended in more recent times to provide a number of additional generously proportioned rooms to the ground and first floors. There are 6 bedrooms altogether including 3 doubles and there are 3 reception rooms to the ground floor.
Externally, the property is set in a generous plot, with gardens to the front and rear and a driveway to the side, offering parking for multiple cars and leading to the timber garage / workshop building.

Accurate valuation advice can be key to selling your home for the best price and in the right timescale. If you are asking too much, it will inevitably lead to no viewings or offers and the property will become stale before you know it. Of course, advertising too cheaply can often result in achieving a low sale price. The asking price needs to be right from the onset.
