    **Excellent Project** Substantial detached individual house located in convenient town location, flexible 4 double bedroomed accommodation in need of modernisation, off road parking for several vehicles (space for garage STP), gardens surrounding, uPVC double glazing – an excellent opportunity to create a lovely spacious family home!

    Orchard Cottage is an individual detached brick built house, originally built in the 1960’s, located in a tucked away position within walking distance of various amenities including the High Street, Peoples Park, doctors surgery, primary schools, with the secondary school being very close. The property is set in a lovely sized plot which surrounds the house, plus it has ample off road parking for at least 3 vehicles.

    The house offers very spacious 4 double bedroomed accommodation, and as apparent from the photos is in need of renovation, modernisation and upgrading, however this is very much reflected in the price, and it offers a purchaser a fantastic opportunity to create a lovely home in their own style and taste at a price point that would otherwise be unobtainable.

    As a guide to help you understand what is required before you view the property, here are some of the more significant works required in our opinion:

    Repairs or replacement of roof and end gable brickwork
    Repairs and floor installation to conservatory
    Upgrading central heating – there is a boiler and several radiators but not connected.
    Landscaping gardens
    Downstairs cloakroom is missing a floor
    Conservatory roof need re-erection
    All internal modernisation works including kitchen, and bathrooms, décor and carpets throughout

    There are other improvements that could be made too which would greatly enhance the house, for instance: there is potential to build a single or double garage (STP) or extend the off road parking area. The current utility could be relocated to the store room and made into a study (or ground floor bed 5).

    We haven’t carried out a survey, or checked electrics or plumbing.

    The accommodation layout and room dimensions are as per the floorplan.

    An open porch has a front door which leads into a spacious staircase entrance hall. From here a door leads into a large living room with full width bi-folding doors into the dining room (the doors can be opened to create one very large room). The kitchen contains a range of fitted units, with stainless steel sink and double drainer, plus space for cooker. Next to the kitchen is a store room with door to outside. The utility room has fitted units and a floor standing gas boiler.  Off the hallway is a small room which was intended to be a cloakroom/WC but has not been fitted with a suite.    Off the living room is a conservatory – it has missing roof windows and requires a floor to become usable.

    On the first floor, the landing gives separate access to all 4 double bedrooms.  The main bathroom contains a bath, wc, and pedestal basin.  The separate shower room has a corner shower cubicle, wc, and pedestal basin.

    Outside – A garden surrounds the entire property, and is at present overgrown and uncultivated.  There is a wide vehicular entrance from Churchill Drive which leads to a large hard standing off road car parking area with space for about 3 vehicles.

    SERVICES : Mains water, drainage and gas.  There is part central heating in the house but it is old and we consider ought to be upgraded.
