Dating from the from the early1800s, Spring Cottage is a handsome stone built period house standing in a mature private garden on the edge of Norton. Spring Cottage has until recently been run as a very successful nursing home by the well-respected Marucci family, but is now offered for sale with (subject to planning) great potential for various uses. The property is in need of modernisation (although it was re-roofed in 2018) and reconfiguration but could make an exceptional family home. Many first floor walls are of stoothing construction which should facilitate adapting the bedrooms.
Originally the house for Spring Cottage Stables it was the home to the great William I’Anson, who owned and trained of Blink Bonny who won the Epsom Derby in 1857 and Blair Athol who won the Derby and St Leger in 1864. Spring Cottage overlooks the racing stables and paddocks now run by one of the leading dual trainers in the country.
With over 4500 square feet and a large number of rooms in the main house there is plenty of room to create larger rooms for modern living or office space. Garden Bungalow, a 2 bedroom annex (some 570 square feet) could be used as such or, together with the outhouses, be converted to garaging.
Spring Cottage stands over-looking a large mainly lawned garden with useful outbuildings to the side. The property lies on Bazeleys Lane just off Langton Road in Norton with open countryside to the South.
