3 & 4 Sunwick Farm Cottages offers a fantastic opportunity for a purchaser to create a home to their own specification. Currently a pair of cottages which have been knocked through at ground and first floor level, the cottages offer scope to create one large dwelling house (subject to the necessary consent) or alternatively a property with an adjoining annexe providing income generating opportunities. The properties require complete refurbishment however cottage No.4 has the benefit of oil-fired central heating installed.

Both cottages have their own front doors, which open into a hallway where a kitchen/dining room can be found together with a ground floor bathroom. The living rooms on the ground floor have been combined to create one large reception space whilst a staircase from both hallways lead to the first-floor level where there are three bedroom; one a very large double, created by connecting through to the adjacent cottage.



To the side of each property is a private driveway and a garage. There are generous gardens to the side and rear which are currently a blank canvas.
