Property Description

A rare opportunity to acquire a substantial largely renovated and extended four double bedroom detached family home situated within 0.5 acres of delightful gardens with outstanding open views to the rear. With planning consent to still further extend and now requiring finishing off, this stunning cottage project has the opportunity to finish the property to a purchasers own design and specification. Offering four reception rooms, a new kitchen with bedroom above (not fitted), majority sealed unit double glazing, the property has also been enlarged through the attachment to two adjacent cottages (numbers 50 and 52) to now create one large property.

The Property 46 Main Street was originally four workers cottages. Having been enlarged through the annexation of numbers 50 and 52 (adjacent cottages) now offering a large south facing rear garden with open views, the property has been the subject of a 12 year project to renovate and extend and now requires finishing off.

Renovation works so far have included complete re-roofing of the original cottage, replacement sealed unit double glazing, replacement floors with pipes for underfloor heating and most rooms having been replastered and rewired. The kitchen and bathroom fittings now require fitting and the property finishing. Planning consent has been granted to extend the rear of the property with a further two storey extension and in addition is a large front garden and attached garage. In all, a rare opportunity to finish a property to ones own taste and specification and further enlarge if required.
