There's no central heating to speak of, the gardens haven't been touched in years, a brick outbuilding needs knocking down and you'd definitely want to install a new kitchen and bathroom.

But Carlton Cottage, six miles from York, has planning permission for major renovation and extension work and - possibly its greatest asset - it's being sold with more than three acres of land. The house, built before the last war, is on a private road outside the village of Warthill.

It needs everything doing to it, say agents Blenkin & Co, but has already attracted considerable interest. The three-bedroom cottage is being sold at auction on 22 April and it's expected to raise more than the pounds 100,000 guide price. Ring 01904 671672 for details.
