This will be a lovely house – lots of character, a little sitting out area, but just around the corner for the river, resto’s and abbey – great position. The house was planned to be let, but financial issues have prevented this from coming to fruition so the owner is selling up – but the estimates are all here so we can get a rough idea how much a re-fit and new bathroom etc will cost (about £10k) – even though we would do it quite differently. Into the house we have a long hallway with lino covered parquet, a big sitting room is off to our right (about 20m²), and at the end of the hall a kitchen with butler’s sink and granite fireplace. Doors to the right take us into a pantry and WC (!) and to the rear into a small courtyard (about 7m², table and chairs only), below all the ground floor is a very dark and cold cellar.
Up the old oak stairs the first floor is all parquet, we have a landing with the first bedroom about 12m² and to the front of the house a beautiful big room with 2 big windows and a granite fireplace, plus an enormous cupboard in the wall. Carrying on upstairs we come to a big attic with great height up to the quite wonderful beam structures – two wonderful, or one magnificent bedroom can be made up here.
The house is in a bit of a state at the moment as work was planned , but not carried out, but beyond the debris, you can really see where you can be with this, it’s a shame the courtyard isn’t just a little bit bigger (maybe your neighbour will sell a bit of his?) but considering where it is – I could live with this!
