DESCRIPTION Situated in the heart of this very accessible village is this very unique home and over the past 10 years the owners have run a highly successful 'Motorcycle' business within the curtilage of the property. The business can be directly accessed from the rear garden of the cottage and via a vehicular right of way from the main road, making it very easy for customers and suppliers. The whole is now being sold due to retirement reasons and we have been advised the existing planning for the land which the business is located on is classed as 'Light Industrial Use'. This presents great opportunities for buyers to run a business from home or options to provide additional parking and turn the existing workshops into garages (investment income). Could also be used to create further gardens or even potential for a building plot (STPC). In recent times the owners had made a pre-application for this and were advised this could be possible, subject to conditions. Any interested parties would need to make their own enquiries.
The Cottage offers three reception rooms, kitchen, breakfast room and shower room on the ground floor. On the first floor are two double bedrooms (one with a master en-suite bathroom) and on the second floor is a larger third bedroom which offers distant countryside views to the front and potential for a walk on roof terrace to the rear. The property also comes with its own garage and a low maintenance rear garden.
