A stone built semi detached cottage requiring some updating in a popular village. Pine Tree Cottage is a semi detached cottage located in Whichford which lies just inside the Warwickshire border and is around 4 miles north of Chipping Norton. The village was mentioned in the Domesday book and the church of St Michael still retains some Norman architecture and the village pub is also called the Norman Knight. The cottage itself is believed to be dated from the early 19th century and will require some updating which will enable the new owner to create a decent size cottage in this well regarded village. The cottage has a number of outbuildings which, subject to the necessary permissions, could create further space as ancillary living or work space. The accommodation consists of main door to the rear of the property which goes into what is currently the utility and boot room. A door then leads into the good size kitchen/dining room which has exposed beams and an impressive full height fireplace. The kitchen is fitted with a range of modern base and eye level units. The sitting room is adjacent, again with a stone built fireplace and a log burner. The front door to the property also leads into this room. Stairs lead from the sitting room to the first floor where there are two double size bedrooms both with cupboards and a family bathroom with white suite and has an electric shower over the bath. On the second floor there are two further bedrooms, one of which leads off the other and both have exposed beams. At the front of the property a path leads to the front door and a small grass area in front of the cottage. At the rear of the property is a gravelled area and garden with shrubs and flower border along with a single garage and lean-to shed and further outbuildings. Please note that the property is being sold at the same time as Rose Cottage next door. Currently there is a shared garden but it is our clients' intention to split this so that each cottage has its own access and garden. Subject to requirement, and the necessary planning consents, there is the opportunity to convert Pine Tree Cottage and Rose Cottage in to one residence.
