Property Description:

A rare and exciting freehold residential development opportunity, to acquire a substantial three bedroom detached period property, formerly a pair of semi detached cottages (numbers 14 & 16), along with a two bedroom detached cottage (number 18) located to the rear, situated in the context of an established and sought after residential location.

Both dwellings are in need of improvement and upgrading throughout and sit on a sizeable mature plot, that is broadly rectangular in shape and may well lend itself to a separate small building plot, subject to obtaining the usual planning consents.

The detached property (14 & 16) in brief comprises; side porch, guest wc, entrance hall, two reception rooms and fitted kitchen. To the first floor passaged landing, there are three well proportioned double bedrooms, family bathroom with separate walk in storage cupboard. Outside to the front there is a small fore garden with hardstanding and an integral garage with double timber doors. To the side there is a large private garden.

Number 18 enjoys a secluded location and the charming brick built cottage in brief comprises; side porch, breakfast kitchen, rear sitting room, hallway with staircase, rear passage with pantry and guest wc. To the first floor, there are two double bedrooms and bathroom. To the side/rear of the property there is a further good size enclosed private garden. Please note there is only pedestrian access to the property.

The properties enjoy a well regarded residential location, conveniently positioned for local shops, schools and recreational facilities. Derby City Centre is a short commute, along with the A52 that provides swift access onto the the M1 Motorway and further regional business centres.

The sale provides a genuine opportunity for a discerning purchaser looking to acquire a superb residential investment opportunity, with the added benefit of immediate vacant possession at a very realistic and sensible guide price.

This property may qualify for stamp duty land tax relief, subject to certain conditions, please see further details below.
