BARGAIN HUNTER: PROPERTY OF THE WEEK- A pounds 200,000 COTTAGE FOR poun ds 150,000
Saturday 15 August 1998
"The cottage needs modernisation," says Mark Jamieson, of Lane Fox. "About pounds 20,000 - which includes rewiring throughout and damp-proofing - will make it sound."
Until about a year ago the cottage was lived in by an old man, and it has really stood in a time warp. "You will end up with a lovely, pukka two-bedroom village house," Jamieson says. "It hasn't been spoilt."
There's no kitchen to speak of, just a tiny room with a sink, and in the sitting-room there's an original range, with a cast-iron oven and a brick shelf.
There are three rooms upstairs, one of which has a vaulted ceiling. Outside there's a lovely old cottage garden with a well. Contact Lane Fox on 0118 984 5757.
