Thankerton Cottage

Thankerton Cottage after

One of the few remaining thatched properties in South Lanarkshire and in a row of similar cottages which are listed for their historical importance, this one included the local blacksmith’s shop.

It was semi derelict when the owners asked for improvement ideas.

The cottage was long enough for two thatched extensions; one for a Kitchen and Utility Room, the other for two Bedrooms.

The Living Room occupies the blacksmith’s shop full height to the roof, and the original double doorway is retained, glazed in one piece. Two original masonry flues have been retained. (The thatch is fire retardant treated!)
