A stone built semi-detached cottage requiring some updating in a popular village. Rose Cottage is a stone built semi-detached cottage located in the well regarded village of Whichford which lies just inside the Warwickshire border. 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 really charming cottage. The accommodation consists of a stone porch at the side of the property leading to the main wooden front door. This leads directly into the sitting room which overlooks the front of the property and has a fireplace with wood burning stove and dark rectangular tiled stone flooring. An inner hallway gives access to the under stairs cupboard/larder and also to the kitchen fitted with base units, sink with drainer and mixer tap and electric cooker. A back door leads from the kitchen directly outside. Stairs off the hallway lead to a first floor bedroom and a family bathroom fitted with bath, wash hand basin and w.c. The second bedroom, being the larger of the two, lies on the second floor with two windows and far reaching views. A driveway leads to the parking area for Rose Cottage and at the front of the cottage is a small grass area. To the side of the house is a detached barn with the original washhouse to one end, which retains its original copper basin, and an open barn area the other end. Please note that the property is being sold at the same time as Pine Tree Cottage next door. Currently there is a shared garden but it is our client's 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.
