Set in a wooded and secluded location in around 1.05 acres of land and gardens is this stone built cottage with three bedrooms and stone barn. The property now requires a programme of refurbishment but many of the original features remain including original beams, stone flags, and feature period style fireplaces and exposed stonework. The house could also offer potential to extend to make a larger family home this is of course subject to all necessary planning consents and regulations being approved. The property has oil fired central heating, a mixture of double glazing units, two garages and a large two storey stone barn ripe for conversion and refurbishment, with future use for office space or independent relative accommodation. Immediately to the rear of the house are large gardens (now overgrown in part) and wooded areas with mature trees. The cottage has been within the same family for multiple years and therefore offers the buyer a unique opportunity to purchase a 'once in a lifetime' house. Early viewing is advised.

* Guide Price
An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
* Reserve Price
The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
