A DETACHED PERIOD COTTAGE SUITABLE FOR REDEVELOPMENT, SUBJECT TO PLANNING, EITHER BY WAY OF EXTENSION OR DEMOLITION SET IN A GOOD SIZED PLOT IN THIS POPULAR VILLAGE TO THE SOUTH EAST OF SALISBURY
DESCRIPTION: This is a detached period cottage built, we believe, in the 1800s of rendered external elevations under a tile roof. The composition of the walls is thought to be of brick however there may be some cob within the construction and the property is not Listed. The property is highly suitable for redevelopment, subject to planning consent, either by way of extension or demolition and a new start. The property sits within a generous triangular plot laid to lawn and there is a detached garage with driveway access with additional parking. The current accommodation with some braced and ledged doors and needing internal refurbishment includes an entrance lobby, sitting room with brick ornamental fireplace, kitchen and rear lobby leading to a shower room. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms. Double glazing is fitted, electric heating storage heaters are installed and bottled gas is supplied to the kitchen.
LOCATION: This delightful cottage is located adjacent to the Salisbury to Southampton railway line on the edge of the village of West Grimstead to the east of Salisbury.
