Latcham Dowling Estate Agents are delighted to offer for sale this wonderful four bedroom detached cottage that is within easy reach of Potton town centre. Dating back to 1717 Burgoyne cottage has connections to the historical land owner Lord Burgoyne. The current owners understand that the property was gifted by Lady Burgoyne to the church for the use as residence for the church warden at that time. There is a statement in the deeds that’s states “thou shalt suffer thy mother to live in the property till the end of her days”
Later the property was bought by George and Silvie, they were one of many market traders in Potton at the time. They sold their produce through the existing side window by the gate, our neighbours opposite knew them both.

The current vendors have made significant improvements during their ownership and have sought to retain the character it deserves.

The property not only offers great accommodation and is in keeping with a property of this period, it also has the real added bonus of a large garden and secured parking for at least 6 cars that is accessed via electric double gates and which in turn lead to a double garage which is not only rare for a property of this age but also for one being so close to the town centre.

Inside there is a wealth of character with many original features with the focal point being the stunning brick built inglenook fireplace. The property boasts a 15’8 kitchen /breakfast room, Study, sitting room, dining room, utility and WC to the ground floor. Whilst upstairs the master bedroom has an en suite, with three further bedrooms and the family bathroom has a wonderful “Victorian style” roll top bath.

Viewing is very much recommended for this piece of Potton history.
