A superbly positioned semi-detached cottage which requires renovation and modernisation and standing in approximately 0.44 of an acre. Comprising 3 bedrooms, living room, bathroom and kitchen, large gardens and paddock with scope for landscaping and with delightful country views (neighbouring house also available for sale).

General Remarks - 17 Lower Down is a typical example of a traditional farm workers cottage which has been previously part of a larger country estate. It provides immense scope for a comprehensive scheme of renovation and modernisation which will provide an excellent family home or investment opportunity.

It now stands in large, private grounds of approximately 0.44 of an acre with a grass paddock and large gardens which also need managing.

This semi-detached cottage is built of stone and brick under a pitched, slate tiled roof and currently offers accommodation of 3 bedrooms, living room, kitchen and bathroom.

Its semi-detached neighbour, No. 18, is also available for sale and there is the opportunity to acquire both properties if required.

Location - The cottages are located in a slightly elevated country setting just below the famous Bury Ditches hill fort and some 4 miles South East of the historic market town of Bishops Castle.

It has good views from most aspects, with the larger towns of Ludlow and Shrewsbury being within comfortable driving distance and providing a comprehensive range of facilities, services and access to the national road and rail networks.

Entrance Hall - With quarry tiled floor, part glazed entrance door and coat hooks.

Bedroom 1 - 13'5" x 10'8" (4.09m x 3.25m) - Unused fire grate, recessed cupboard over stairs, shelving, traditional floor boards and window to the front with excellent views.

Outside - No. 17 is approached off the quiet council maintained lane by a hardcore track to the side of the cottage. To the front is a small grassed paddock area, with this and the large rear gardens extending to approximately 0.44 of an acre. The main gardens lie to the side of the building and are laid predominantly to grass with floral edging borders close to the cottage.

The gardens require some landscaping but have delightful views to front and rear over open farmland.

Services - We understand that mains water and electricity are connected. Please note there is a water sub-meter in No.17 which serves No.18 with mains meter in the verge by the paddock entrance gates. The owner of No.17 will take charge of the supply to No.18 , charging units at the same rate as Severn Trent Water at the time of reading.

A private drainage system serves both No.17 and No.18 and we believe is located in the land passing with the sale of No. 18. The owners of both properties will have joint maintenance liabilities in the future.

NOTE: None of the services or installations have been tested by the agent.

Council Tax - Band B
