In need of updating and improving, Melbourne is a semi-detached former estate workers cottage located within the popular settlement of Quidhampton. The original portion of the property is believed to date at around the early 1800s with a later addition being the front two storey elevation which was added around the early 1900s. In addition a rear single storey extension comprises a garden room, entrance lobby and ground floor WC.

The accommodation is generous in proportion with a good size entrance hall giving access to two separate reception rooms and long galley style kitchen. Off the first floor landing are two double bedrooms, a large single bedroom and a family bathroom. There is also access to a sizeable roof space.

Much of the early character remains with original heavy timber panelled doors, architraves, picture rails and some interesting timber panelling. There is also a working fire place in the sitting room and dining room. In the main the windows are double glazed and heating is provided by a mains gas fired boiler to a water filled radiator system.

The cottage has a private partly walled courtyard to the rear from which pedestrian access is gained to a not insubstantial plot which offers a large private garden area and additional land with a drive accessible from Locks Lane. There is also a double garage, one half of which belongs to the neighbouring cottage who also have a right of way over the drive. The bottom of the garden borders a tributary of the river Nadder overlooking Boys Meadow Withybed.
