Tiny but picture perfect Gloucestershire cottage for sale for ambitious sum; it is named ‘John Brown’s Cottage’ but has nothing to do with the American slavery abolitionist
A picturesque 17th century Cotswold stone Gloucestershire cottage has gone on sale for £500,000 ($635,000, €569,000 or درهم2.3 million) in spite of having just one proper bedroom.
John Brown’s Cottage in Ablington, near Bibury, which shares a name with but has no associations with the famed American slavery abolitionist, stands in delightful gardens of 0.25 acres and has accommodation that totals just 781 square foot. It features a 14’6” square sitting room, a minute kitchen, a ground floor bathroom, one first floor bedroom with what is called a “cabinet de toilette” and one occasional attic bedroom with limited headroom.
The Grade II listed cottage is on the market through Knight Frank and at £640 per square foot ($813, €729 or درهم2,985 per square foot) comes at a price that wouldn’t look out of place for a London flat.
