Pretty village cottage with further potential and existing income stream.
Briar Cottage is a terraced stone property located in an elevated position. Thought to originate from the 17th century, this charming home is positioned within the picturesque village of Shutford and steeped in history. The property offers the rare opportunity to earn an income from solar panels, plus there is are photoelectric tubes which heat the hot water.
The property retains a wealth of period features throughout but is in need of some modernisation after being in the same ownership for nearly 30 years. However, it does offer comfortable accommodation with plenty of potential, and a delightful garden too.
Upon entering the house is a hallway leading to the main reception rooms. The sitting room is filled with period features including inglenook and fireplace, a window seat and exposed beams, imposing a cosy and welcoming feel. The dining room is also spacious with plenty of room for a generous table and it also has another fireplace with electric fire at present. The kitchen is in need of modernisation with great potential to extend into the light breakfast/ garden room (subject to relevant planning permissions.) There is also a useful utility area, storage cupboard and downstairs cloakroom.
Upstairs there is plenty more character and potential to be seen. There are three double bedrooms, the principal bedroom with inbuilt wardrobes, and another with an inbuilt desk space, perfect for a home office/study if needed. There is also a generous family bathroom in need of updating.
Outside to the rear of the property is a charming mature garden, partly laid to lawn with a pathway running through the middle. There is also an abundance of flowers beds, shrubs, bushes and trees and also a small ornamental pond and greenhouse. In addition to this there is a garage (which the current vendor rebuilt) with solar panels, power and lighting, a gated gravelled driveway with room for numerous cars.
