OUTSIDE The property stands in spacious grounds which are to either side and to the rear of the cottage backing onto open farmland with the road forming the fourth side. The gardens are somewhat under-developed, but capable of being landscaped and tended to provide a wonderful backdrop to the property itself. Alongside the house is a:

DETACHED BARN (with a lean-to to one side) which has conversion possibilities.

. In the rear garden is a MOBILE HOME measuring approximately 7.0m x 3.0m which was used as a residence until 2008. This mobile home has been in location for a long time and we believe may have an established use in planning terms, although it is now barely habitable.

SERVICES We understand that there is no water supply connected to the property, although there is an old well which has not been used in recent times. It may be possible to restore it or use mains water as an alternative. There are currently no toilet facilities, but there is ample room within the site for the construction of a septic tank. Mains electricity connected, but not useable. No central heating and no gas available.

USE AND PLANNING CONSENTS The property has an established residential use. The barn could be developed separately and there is no restriction on this. The mobile home may have an established use.

DEFINITIONS Guide Price - An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see definition below). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

. Reserve Price - The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
