Gas Central Heating
Kitchen with Pantry
Current EPC Rating E
So to begin on a positive, this simple terrace cottage has gas central heating and relatively modern wiring. Nevertheless the paintwork is chipped, the plasterwork crumbling, the plumbing old and the fittings well and truly shot! But as they say in Yorkshire, "a good fettling" is what this property needs and with some imaginative renovation and outdoor landscaping it has huge potential to become a lovely home in the heart of one of the most picturesque villages in Ryedale. It is certainly a project well worth tackling.
The current owners, Gateways Developments Limited, known locally for their expertise in renovating old buildings, have consulted Architectural Designers Peter Rayment Design Limited over the complete remodelling of this cottage and their creative ideas can be seen on the drawings contained within these sale particulars. Naturally, some of these changes may require North York Moors National Park Planning Consent but for anyone wishing to take on the project in a more simplistic way, hard graft and enthusiasm is all that is required.
It's biggest surprise is the garden, extending away from the cottage in a south westerly direction measuring approx 70 metres from the back door to the furthest boundary with rear access off Roxby Road. There is stacks of room to park cars/trailers or even build a garage with home office or workshop above (as seen in the plans) subject to the necessary planning consent.
