Gough Cottage is in need of renovation and modernisation and has the potential to be sympathetically extended, subject to planning permission. Although the house needs refurbishing, because it was built by the renowned Pool and Sons, it still boasts many lovely original features. It is smaller than some of the large houses in the Blue Triangle, but the style of house with its large main reception room, the double height entrance hallway, the detail in the elevations and the whole setting are very much in keeping with those houses. It just needs to be modernised updated and loved again.
The first impressions of the house as you walk through into the open hallway with its lovely original staircase, set the scene for the rest of this home. The separate kitchen has fitted white wall and base units with fridge freezer, double oven, gas hob extractor, dishwasher and washing machine. There is a breakfast room area with patio doors into the rear garden.
The main living room is over 22 feet with a bay window facing the rear garden and large side window creating a bright and spacious room. It is connected to the formal dining room which has patio doors leading into the rear garden. A double bedroom with en suite bathroom is also on the ground floor in addition to a downstairs cloakroom. The entrance hall, reception and dining room boast a beautiful wooden parquet floor in very good condition as well.
Upstairs there are 2 double bedrooms and a smaller double along with a family bathroom with shower cubicle,bath and sink..
The house sits quite centrally to the plot and provides a gated formal driveway and front garden. The land to both sides of the house offer scope for extension and there is also the possibility of developing into the roof to create an additional en suite bedroom (subject to the necessary consents).
The rear garden is south west facing and laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs.
Gough Road lies in Fleet’s prestigious “Blue Triangle” The large houses and plots along with a large number of mature trees gives the area a feeling of being well away from the Town Centre and yet Fleet’s High Street is only a short walk away. It is also close to Fleet mainline station making it ideal for commuters. The shops, cafes and restaurants of Fleet High Street are also close making the location as practical as well as desirable.
Local and regional transport communications are excellent with such close proximity to Fleet mainline station providing fast frequent access into London Waterloo and Clapham Junction. Junction 4a of the M3 motorway is close by allowing access into London, Southampton and South West.
