A unique opportunity to purchase a substantial Grade II listed house in a rural setting with attached stone built former cottage now garage (no.80)

Believed to date from the early 19th Century or earlier is this period stone property and separate dwelling/garage. Believed to be formally two cottages originally, ‘Thornhill’ is now a lovely family home which features two large bedrooms, substantial attic rooms ripe for conversion plus two reception rooms and a kitchen. The house has Grade II listing status and now requires a scheme of refurbishment and building work but offers superb scope and potential to create a much desired family home in a rural setting. The property has gas central heating, is to be sold vacant and retains many of its original style features and fittings including exposed beam work, period fireplaces to most rooms, panelled and sash windows plus a large cellar with a beautiful vaulted ceiling ripe for future use/conversion. Thornhill sits in an enviable position in the village commanding views over the surrounding countryside from many of its windows. Attached to the side of the property (no.80) and included with the house is an additional former cottage now garage. This property which we believe is not listed is now in need of a full scheme of works and repair but has light, power, water, internal stairs to the first floor rooms and W.C. plus large eaves and attic space. Due to the size and layout of no.80 we believe there is scope for conversion back to residential accommodation this of course being subject to necessary planning consents and regulations and interested parties are asked to make their own enquiries. To the rear of both properties is a courtyard area and a pretty cottage garden to the front of Thornhill. Such a unique property warrants a full internal viewing to see the potential offered to the buyer.

GUIDE PRICES & RESERVE PRICES

Guide Price
An indication of the seller’s current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

Reserve Price
The seller’s minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer.

Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
