Neglected Auction Property Of The Month

Today we bring you a (potentially!) charming country cottage with amazing commuter access links.

Decades of ivy growth successfully camouflage a pretty Victorian property in need of refurbishment throughout.

The pretty village, Desford in Leicestershire is complete with six inns and a 13th Century church – modern in comparison to it’s Norman font. Although the tranquil village isn’t out of the way, being just 3 miles from the M1 with fast links to Coventry, Birmingham, Leicester and Warwick making it ideal for commuters.

With two spacious reception rooms and two good sized bedrooms with a first floor bathroom the cottage will equally suit a family or retired couple but they must be keen gardeners, the house has a good size rear garden with some very nice, well established plants.

So what work is needed?

Well, the house hasn’t been renovated for many a year so expect a complete refurb – so that’s a new kitchen, bathroom, décor, heating and carpets. Wiring too probably. But once done the new owner will be left with a quaint country pad and a delightful cottage garden thrown in.

Guided at £95,000 you won’t need very deep pockets for your idyllic rural retreat.

The Why:

  • Idyllic English Village
  • 2 good size bedrooms and an upstairs bathroom
  • Pretty rear garden
  • The price

The Why Not:

  • Needs work
  • Smallish front garden

Going to auction with Graham Penny on 14th May. Full information and pictures HERE.
