DESCRIPTION A DETACHED COTTAGE IN NEED OF COMPLETE RENOVATION.

Riverside Cottage is a brick built detached cottage in a stunning semi rural position close to the River Yeo overlooking the mill pond on the edge of the village centre, its excellent facilities and public transport.

Acquired by Persimmon Homes as part of the Elliot Medway site which has been developed (and now completed) into a variety of attractive homes, the property is now offered for sale as the final piece of the residential development.

The cottage is set in a plot of around a quarter of an acre, which is somewhat overgrown and which also includes an orchard to the west of the property itself which is subject to Tree Preservation Orders.

We are informed of the following by Persimmon Homes:


1) Mains drains are on site

2) Gas, electricity and water at your own enquiries

3) There is no power at the property

4) The cottage is sold as seen, so an EPC will not be provided

5) The extent of the land also includes a shared driveway giving access to a garage belonging to Weir Cottage (beyond Riverside Cottage) and to a newly built garage, owned by Riverside Cottage.

6) There is a pedestrian access path and right of way within the northern boundary which leads across the rear of the orchard ongoing to Riverside Cottage to the rear of Weir Cottage.

The sale of Riverside Cottage offers an increasingly rare opportunity to acquire a property with potential in a large plot in a village environment, and it is sure to excite. However we would respectfully ask that buyers fully investigate the possibilities of development before they offer, as we will be requesting unconditional offers to purchase.
