Property Description

Full description

FOR SALE BY PUBLIC AUCTION ON: 11th September 2019 at 6.30pm at the Beverley Racecourse.

A SUBSTANTIAL DETACHED 1920'S RESIDENCE REQUIRING MODERNISATION SITUATED ON A PLOT OF OVER THREE QUARTERS OF AN ACRE THAT OFFERS GREAT POTENTIAL.

Description - Windcroft is a substantial detached five bedroomed house built to an individual design in the 1920's on a plot approaching 0.8 of an acre. The setting provides total privacy, the site now being enclosed to all boundaries by mature trees. A large garage was added in the 1980's and some improvements were carried out at that time, but the house is now in need of a comprehensive programme of modernisation, therefore offering tremendous potential to create a lovely family home with some appealing character features. Alternatively, the site may be suitable to redevelop with more than one dwelling, subject to planning approval being available.

Situation - The property is about 1.25 miles south of the centre of Hornsea, a coastal town also famous for its Mere, Yorkshire's largest fresh water lake. The town provides local schools for all ages, shopping including a Tesco store, and the usual seaside attractions. The house stands across the road from the golf club. Hull approx 17 miles, Beverley approx 14 miles.
