The properties comprise a row of terraced cottages, which have been divided to create five properties in total, of which four are being sold (our client has no power of sale over the 5th one).
The cottages date back to 1800s and are of stone construction, with uPVC windows and under a pitched, slate roof. The Receivers have inspected 3 of these and they all comprise a two bedroom cottage, with an open plan living room/kitchen to the ground floor. Each cottage has a bathroom and some have an additional ensuite. We assume Buttercup which could not be accessed is also a two bedroom property and similar to the others. Interested parties should rely on their own enquiries.
The 4 cottages are sold with tenants in situ and we understand they occupy at a combined annual gross income of £27,300.
The properties require refurbishment and we understand they are currently on a single electricity supply that it is sub-metred.
