Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Now for something completely different... And different it is, but perfect if you really want to get your hands dirty! Ivy cottage occupies a generous plot on the outskirts of Gosforth and is crucially just outside the National Park. Surrounded by fields this detached cottage is ready for renovation (or demolition) and once complete will make a special home in a rather unique setting. There are two first floor bedrooms plus an ante-room (occasional bedroom) and two large reception rooms with a kitchen/diner. Outside there is a garage, carport, outhouse and store, with large gardens and a ruined outbuilding. We have kind of fallen for its charms... and so might you!
