A viewing is essential to fully appreciate the size and potential in this beautiful period three double bedroom L shaped cottage set in the stunning semi rural area of Thorpe Hesley in Rotherham. Some years ago the property was the Victoria Inn public house, hence the flow of the spacious ground floor reception rooms. The property is set in a village location with local village stores, public houses, doctors and dental surgeries and includes a pharmacy making the village self sufficient. The Village is within a short drive of Chapeltown, Sheffield which has an abundance of shops, restaurants and a large supermarket. Thorpe Hesley has easy access to the M1 and motorway network and is just one junction away from Meadowhall Shopping Centre. Fantastic countryside walks in and around Thorpe Hesley and Wentworth are perfect for dog owners or delightful for a Sunday afternoon stroll. The property is in need of total refurbishment, allowing you to put your own stamp on the property and turn this into a fantastic family home once more. Early viewing will be essential in order to snap up what could potentially be your forever home. 

ENTRANCE HALL Entrance from the front of the property is into a unique property with charm and character in abundance. The central hallway has doors leading off to both sides with staircase rising to the first floor accommodation and a useful under stairs cloakroom. A character inset stone arc is set at shelf level. 

CLOAKROOM Located beneath the stairs is a useful cloakroom with low flush w.c. and corner wall mounted wash hand basin in white. This space is a fantastic addition to any family home. 

RECEPTION ROOM To the left of the hallway is a delightful reception room with dual aspect providing lashings of natural light. The room is set with feature ceiling beam in keeping with the age and charm of the building and is set with a stone fireplace with tiled back and hearth which is complete with an inset coal effect gas fire providing a lovely focal point to the room. This room would be perfect with a log burning stove subject to necessary checks. 

RECEPTION ROOM From the hallway two steps lead to a further spacious reception room which is currently set as a multi use room. This room was formerly the concert room of the Victoria Inn and a small raised stage is located to the right hand side of the window. This could be transformed into the main reception room if preferred with space in abundance to allow you to start from scratch with a design of your choice in order to make this into your dream room. 

KITCHEN A door leads from the reception room to the kitchen which is currently set with a range of wood finished wall and base units with beige mottled rolled edged worktops inset with one and half bowl black finished sink and mixer taps. The kitchen is spacious and is crying out for some TLC, and this beautiful property really needs to be set with a high spec kitchen which should then deliver the wow factor it truly deserves. A rear facing window looks out across the large garden beyond and a door leads out onto a block paved patio area. The kitchen currently houses the Valiant combination boiler. 

DINING ROOM A further door leads down two steps to what was once the formal dining room, with front facing bay window providing a feature outlook and set with feature ceiling beam, lending itself to the perfect space for entertaining. A door leads down to the large cellar which is perfect for storage or could perhaps house a wine cellar if required. 

MASTER BEDROOM This stunning master bedroom is front facing allowing natural light to flood the room and making for a lovely bright outlook. The spacious master provides plenty of space to allow you to install an en-suite bathroom, which should be checked with a reputable builder, and ample room left over to install your own fitted furniture if required. 

BEDROOM TWO This fantastic second bedroom is accessed from the hallway, up two steps. The room is side facing with a bright outlook, and has a high ceiling making it feel light and airy. The room could easily be used as the master if preferred, but would make a fantastic guest room, with plenty of space available to install a further en-suite if required. Space is available to allow you to install your own storage solutions. 

BEDROOM THREE The third and final bedroom in the property comes with dual aspect allowing for another bright room and is a further large double in size. The room is set with feature ceiling beam providing a cottage feel whilst still having good head height. This room was previously divided to establish the family bathroom. The airing cupboard remains in this room but it could be removed as it no longer houses the hot water tank. Plenty of space is available to allow you to install your own storage solutions. 

FAMILY BATHROOM The family bathroom is front facing with obscure window providing natural light and ventilation. Fitted with three piece suite in avocado green and electric shower, the room is fully tiled with carpet flooring and is in need of upgrading to make it into the peaceful haven it deserves. 

BACON LOFT Just outside the bathroom entrance is the ceiling access to the old bacon loft. This is currently boarded but it could easily reopened as a feature.
 

GARDEN & EXTERIOR To the front of the property is an open plan garden providing off road parking. Whilst to the rear of the property is a gated driveway leading to a paved parking area which could easily accommodate a garage if preferred and subject to any necessary consents. The large rear garden is walled to one side making it private and being laid mainly to lawn and set with mature trees and shrubs and providing a haven for young children to explore.
