A Hovel House

Not so miserable looking medieval cottage rather unfortunately named ‘The Hovel’ on the quaintly named ‘Duck Lane’ for sale for virtually the same price as in 2005

Described as “the only agricultural ‘hovel’ in original condition in England” when it sold for £165,000 in 1997, a truly eccentric thatched house mentioned in the Domesday Book is again for sale for just slightly more than the plainly overly ambitious £375,000 it was offered for in 2005.

Grade II listed ‘The Hovel’ is situated on a non-through road in an idyllic Midsomer Murders-like village in Buckinghamshire named Ludgershall. It has maximum ceiling heights of 6’2” that are propped up by branches of oak and twisted twigs and other features number walls that “wave-in-and-out” made from “billowing plaster” and an original timber door.

 

Extending to a total of 426 square foot, the pint sized 2 bedroom detached cottage is Grade II listed. It comes with a 155 square foot summer house within its 0.23 acres of gardens and is approached by a path over a brook.
