FOR SALE BY INFORMAL TENDER ON Friday28th January 2022 AT 12.00 NOON at Offa House, St Peters Square, Hereford, HR1 2PQ Well-situated on the outskirts of the popular rural village of Sutton St Nicholas, a semi-detached former farmhouse, together with barns, gardens and grounds, in total extending to around three quarters of an acre.

Situation

This interesting property lies on the northern side of the attractive village of Sutton St Nicholas which itself is a thriving village with a popular primary school, a village hall, public house, Church and a regular bus service to and from the cathedral city of Hereford, which lies some 3 miles away.

Accommodation

Originally a small farm, the property has been extended and subdivided over the years to create two semi-detached cottages with No. 1 Frankhurst offering huge potential for improvement and development. There are two small barns, former gardens, which are a good size, all of which extends to around three quarters of an acre. The house currently benefits from oil fired central heating and offers excellent living space with a large sitting room and a number of period features. Now requiring modernisation, in our view, it offers huge potential.

Initially approached by a shared private driveway, a gate leads to a parking and turning area to one side and a porch and door to the front lead into a reception hall. From here access can be gained to a large sitting room, with sash window, a fireplace and double doors opening to the garden. There is a separate dining room with a brick fireplace and a rear entrance porch, off which is a kitchen, a walk-in pantry and a good sized utility room/cloakroom.

On the first floor, the landing has a sash window overlooking the drive and provides access to three main bedrooms, a study or fourth bedroom, a shower room and separate w.c.

The property stands in attractive grounds, which have fallen into disrepair in recent years, but offer huge potential to provide once again a very attractive garden. There is a courtyard of buildings, which although small, offer a potential for a variety of uses. These comprise a traditional two storey cider barn and a smaller single storey workshop and store.

The approximate boundary lines are shown in blue on the attached plan and for guidance purposes only.

Outbuildings: May not be in a stable condition and entry should be taken with caution.

Services & Considerations

At present the oil storage tank for No2 Frankhurst is situated on land belonging to No1, and the purchaser of No.2 will need to move or replace this into the grounds of No 2 from completion.

The current septic tank is also shared between the two properties and the buyers will need to provide for their own separate drainage on their own land within a year of completion. The buyer will need to erect a stock proof fence around the new boundary at their own expense. A covenant exists restricting the property to be just one single private dwelling house.

Council tax band D. Tenure freehold.
