Full description

A genuine detached country cottage of great charm and character, now requiring complete renovation and modernisation works, standing in lovely surrounding gardens, in a popular and scenic rural setting.

Description - Halls are favoured with instructions to offer Butlers Bank, Breaden Heath, for sale by private treaty.

Butlers Bank Cottage is a genuine detached country cottage of great charm and character, now requiring complete renovation and modernisation works, standing in lovely surrounding gardens, in a popular and scenic rural setting.

The property offers interesting internal accommodation, at present, comprising a ground floor Living Room, Sitting Room, Kitchen, Bathroom and Utility Room, together with two first floor Bedrooms (accessed via two separate staircases).

The property stands in lovely spacious surrounding gardens, all down to lawn and an orchard, at present, but with immense potential for landscaping according to ones individual tastes and requirements. The property extends, in all, to approximately 0.375 of an acre, or thereabouts.

The gardens are complimented by a garage and a number of store sheds/workshops.

The sale of Butlers Bank Cottage does, therefore, provide a very unusual opportunity to purchase a genuine detached country cottage of great charm and character, with lovely surrounding gardens, in this popular and scenic unspoilt rural setting. An inspection is highly recommended.
