Property Summary

A rare opportunity to acquire a pair of semi detached cottages in need of extensive modernisation and improvement. Situated towards the end of a No Through Lane, the cottages have driveway and gardens behind. Each has two bedrooms plus additional first floor spaces and two ground floor reception rooms .

Property Details

The cottages, which were originally Nos. 10, 11, 12 & 13 Ludgate Causeway have been in the same family ownership since 1959. Originally four separate cottages, alterations many years ago created two virtually matching pairs which are now being offered for sale in need of extensive modernisation and improvement with tremendous scope to redevelop, subject to Planning Permission and Building Regulation Approval. Each current cottage has two bedroom spaces along with first floor bathrooms and landings. The ground floors comprise two reception room areas in each with kitchens to the rear along with ancillary spaces. A driveway to the left end of the row leads to the rear and a parking area along with a number of outbuildings including a Garage/Workshop. There is NO ONWARD CHAIN.

The two cottages have a driveway at the left hand end of the row leading to an area of hard standing behind. An apron of semi hard standing extends across the front of the terrace. The sizeable plot contains a number of former garage spaces and sheds which in the short term will no doubt be of use to the renovator. The main GARAGE/WORKSHOP building has an up and over door plus side door and an internal measurement of approximately 22'4 x 12'1 ( 6.83m x 3.7m) with glazing along one side and the rear.
