Historic Nutbourne Houses: Timber Cottage

1930s Timber Cottage built as a single-floor dwelling as the northernmost property on the Lower Nash estate.
Mid 1970s Occupied by Ernie Jane, a retired local herdsman and his wife Margaret, until her death in 1980. Mr. Jane, a colourful local character, continued to occupy the ramshackle house until 1985.
1986-1996 The original timber building was replaced by a modern brick-built bungalow. A vehicular entrance was added and the first owners were Pat and Ian Mackinnon and their two sons.
