INTRODUCTION This excellent buying opportunity is a rare and welcome addition to the market. The property is one of character and long standing history having being in the same families ownership for over 100 years. The rarity of the opportunity cannot therefore be overstated.

The property is offered for sale with no ongoing chain and the property offers an exciting renovation project for the eventual purchaser who wants to put their own stamp on the property and create a fine family home. The property is set in grounds of 0.581 acre and has a good sized cottage plus a well proportioned single storey outbuilding. Upon internal inspection prospective purchasers will note that the property does require modernisation and updating whilst realising the true potential of the property. There is however no doubt that with expenditure, imagination and flair an outstanding family home can be created out of what is a very large, established and mature site.

The cottage itself offers surprisingly spacious accommodation and opens with a good sized entrance hall and has at ground floor level two reception rooms, a bathroom and a good sized kitchen. At first floor level there are three bedrooms. Many of the rooms have features of character which demonstrates the age and history of the property.

Externally there is an excellent single storey outbuilding that provides fantastic storage space suitable for either domestic or small commercial use with numerous alternative uses. The gardens and grounds are an absolute delight being mainly laid to lawn and enjoying surprisingly high levels of seclusion and privacy. One of the nicest vantage points is to stand at the far end of the garden and look through a beautiful lawned area to the principal cottage and outbuildings to the side and this really shows the full extent of the plot.
