Property: Three To View
Saturday 13 February 1999
TAKE YOUR pick: pounds 97,500 will buy a garage in Chelsea, but it could also get you The Hollies, a three-bedroom, Victorian terraced cottage in a small hamlet near the River Severn in Gloucestershire. Riverbank walks are just a few minutes away from the brick cottage, which has views across open countryside. Shops and pubs are in the nearby villages of Saul and Frampton-on-Severn. The cottage has a sitting/dining room (originally two rooms) with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and Parkray multi-fuel stove. There is a kitchen diner with built-in Neff hob/cooker, downstairs loo and upstairs bathroom. Details from Murrays (01453 755552).
ALTERNATIVELY, pounds 85,000 will buy Plumbers Cottage, a Grade II listed, one-bedroom, end-of-terrace house in Much Hadham, Hertfordshire. Almost 300 years old, it forms part of a yard which was converted into homes and has a small private garden, along with use of a larger communal garden. Six miles from Bishop's Stortford and the mainline station to Liverpool Street (about 40 minutes), the traditional weather-boarded cottage has a sitting-room cum kitchen with limed oak units and a spiral staircase to the first floor. The upper landing features a vaulted ceiling, as does the 13ft by 10ft bedroom. There's parking for two cars. Call Mullucks on 01279 755400.
FOR pounds 94,950, you can buy Church Cottage, a Grade II listed, black-and- white thatched cottage at Burghill, which is just four miles from Hereford. The house has been completely restored, and it features a 13ft dining room with original stone-flagged fireplace, quarry-tiled floor and exposed ceiling and wall timbers. There's a separate sitting room, a fitted kitchen and a downstairs bathroom. Upstairs, one of the two bedrooms is actually a 12ft 9in by 12ft 6in landing.
Outside, there is a garden with climbing roses and an apple tree. In addition, there is a utility room as well as a shed, and planning permission for a driveway and garage has been obtained. Further details from Bill Jackson (01432 344779).
