Guide price £350,000-£375,000 Lot 1 - This property offers enormous redevelopment potential. Located in an idyllic south facing rural setting overlooking a quiet, wooded valley, is this characterful detached cottage. The property stands in an enviable position with a stunning outlook over the surrounding field which is being sold by separate negotiation as Lot 2, and views beyond down through the valley. As you approach the cottage you will see that it benefits from offroad parking, plus a large detached outbuilding which also offers development potential as workshop, storage, additional accommodation, or ‘party barn’.
As you enter the cottage, off the entrance hallway lies the kitchen with large window taking in the best of the outlook. The kitchen leads through to a utility room which has a door into the garden. The dining room features an open fireplace with hidden bread oven and a stunning original slate flagstone floor. Double doors open into the living room which benefits from a stone built open fireplace and French windows opening onto a terraced area and garden beyond. To complete the accommodation on the ground floor there is a study / office room.
Off the first floor landing there is a bathroom with bath. There are two good sized double bedrooms, with one bedroom leading into the other.
Throughout, the wooden windows are single glazed and there is electric storage heating (not in operation).
Outside, the side and rear of the cottage feature beautiful cottage gardens, mostly laid to lawn with various flower, rose and shrubs beds with fabulous examples of some wonderful flowering trees including two large magnolias.
Lot 2, which is available by separate negotiation (POA) is the large field surrounding to the side and rear. This agricultural field is approximately 2.5 acres with two separate access gates, and combined with the cottage site would potentially enable a redevelopment project, subject to the necessary consents. Alternatively, the field, which features an attractive copse area of woodland towards its south eastern border, could provide a perfect pony / horse paddock, particularly as it is bounded on the southerly edge by a stream
There is significant potential for refurbishment, extension or redevelopment of the cottage, particularly in conjunction with Lot 2. There is an extant planning consent for extension (1973) and the sellers have had positive pre-application advice (2022) for a more significant redevelopment. The Pre Application advice from 2022 is available to be seen on request by any interested potential buyer.
