Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A village development opportunity comprising a period cottage for renovation, together with a yard upon which there is planning consent for the construction of two additional detached dwellings. Available as a whole or in two lots.


Hungarton is an attractive model village, largely constructed between 1764 and 1776 by the owner of the surrounding estate, Quenby Hall. The village has a church, a village hall, a small stream, a village green and a public house.


The Cottage: Situated opposite the pretty village church, this Grade II listed cottage consists of just less than 1500 sq.ft (as shown on the floor plans) of accommodation with a further 372 sq.ft of attached stores/workshops which may be potentially incorporated, subject to the necessary Listed Building planning consents.

The property is in need of complete renovation and is built of brick and stone with a slate roof. Entrance is via a solid wood front door directly into the dining room with windows to the front and rear elevations and a small internal window into the kitchen. There is a brick fireplace with tile hearth and wooden surround, several built-in cupboards, concrete floor and doors to the rear hall and into the sitting room.

The sitting room has windows to the front, rear and side elevations, exposed brick flooring and beam work, built-in cupboard and brick fireplace with clay tile hearth and wooden/copper surround. From the rear hall are steps down into the back porch with window to the side elevation and door into the garden. The rear hall also has a door leading to the stairs which rise to the first floor, a storage cupboard and door into the kitchen. The kitchen has linoleum flooring, window to the front elevation and a range of floor and walls units with sink unit, cooking range, oven and fridge.

Accessed from a small half landing is one of the double bedrooms
with floorboards and a window overlooking the rear elevation. The first floor landing is spacious with wooden flooring and has a door to the family bathroom, situated within the eaves with a window to the front elevation, large airing cupboard housing the emersion tank, bath, sink unit and WC. The landing continues along the length of the property with a window over the rear elevation and doors into two further double bedrooms, the master bedroom being within the eaves and having an electric
fire. Both have windows overlooking the front elevation.

Garden and Grounds
To the east of the cottage is a dilapidated single garage. There
are further stores/workshop attached to the property which are
accessed from the rear garden and have windows overlooking the rear garden. To the rear of the property is a south easterly facing garden which slopes down to a small stream and overlooks rolling countryside beyond.

Lot 2 - Two Building Plots
