FINAL OFFERS INVITED 12 NOON on FRIDAY 4th OCTOBER. An exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a detached three bedroom bungalow in need of complete renovation or redevelopment. Situated in 12.3 acres of surrounding paddocks with 1.9 acres available opposite, the bungalow currently offers two reception rooms, kitchen, bathroom, three bedrooms together with two garages and stores.

The paddocks are stock proofed, the smaller paddock having a pond and a small brick barn. Lot 2 - 1.91 acre paddock opposite - Guide Price £25,000.

Location

The property is situated on the Tilton Lane just off the A47 which gives fast access to Leicester, Stamford and Peterborough.

Directions


The Property 
Toll Bar is a detached three bedroom bungalow which is offered to the market on instructions of the executors of the late Malcolm Martin deceased. The property is vacant and in a semi-derelict condition. Whilst there is uPVC sealed unit double glazing and oil fired central heating, it is anticipated that most purchasers would wish to substantially and completely renovate, restore and probably extend the existing bungalow or indeed apply to demolish the existing building and construct a new dwelling to their own taste and specification. The setting of the property is delightful as it is surrounded by approximately 12 acres of paddocks with an additional 1.91 acre paddock available opposite, the property on the other side of Tilton Lane. Given the scarcity of development projects with land and open countryside, we would recommend early inspection and offers are invited in excess of £400,000 for the bungalow with the land opposite (Lot 2) at a Price Guide of £25,000.

Additional Lot 
Lot 2 consists of a second stock proofed paddock situated opposite the property on the other side of Tilton Lane with an access fronting the A47. This paddock extends to 1.91 acres and is offered at a Price Guide of £25,000.

Services

Agents Note 
The property is in need of complete renovation. There is evidence of some cracks in the property which we consider will make the property difficult to mortgage. Cash offers will therefore be given preference over those where mortgage funds are required to purchase.
