Quaint semi-detached cottage nestled in a rural spot in need of full modernisation.

This quaint flint semi detached cottage is situated off the beaten track on the edge of the market town of Swaffham. Shared access track leads to the cottage which is tucked away making a perfect retreat. Offering potential to extend off the side gable (subject to planning permission) or reconfiguration of the first floor. The cottage currently offers two bedrooms and a shower room on the first floor with a sitting room and kitchen on the ground floor and a lean to conservatory in poor condition that needs demolishing. Once you find this property you will understand it is unique and would suit someone wanting the peace of the countryside. The cottage needs full restoration and once complete would make an ideal holiday cottage or first home. NB: There is an enclosed walled courtyard to the rear of the property which can be purchased by separate negotiation of £7,500 upon completion.
