The little cottage has a lounge, dining room, kitchen and study with two upstairs bedrooms but no bathroom. Outside it’s got a large garden and a timber workshop also in need of attention.

The property is for sale with Auction House in an online sale on Wednesday, July 22 at 11am.

Auctioneer Bryan Baxter said: “This semi-detached cottage requires full modernisation or would benefit from redevelopment, subject to obtaining appropriate planning permission. The property is situated in large gardens in a non-estate location and is an ideal project for a builder or developer.”
