A unique opportunity to acquire a quaint detached cottage nestled in a secluded spot in sought-after Wakeham. It's ideally located within walking distance of picturesque Church Ope Cove and the amenities of Easton Square. While this charming cottage requires some renovation, it boasts a spacious lounge/dining area, large conservatory, a modern well-equipped kitchen and shower room, two double bedrooms (including a loft room), and a versatile dressing room that could serve as a third bedroom. Outside, you'll find ample courtyard gardens at both the front and rear, along with several useful outbuildings, offering significant potential for enhancement.

Upon entering the cottage, you're greeted by a spacious front porch ideal for storing coats and boots. Continuing inside, a generously sized lounge/dining room awaits, boasting abundant natural light streaming in through a large bow window at the front. Off the lounge, there's access to a modern, well-appointed kitchen complete with ample base and wall-mounted cupboards, a convenient breakfast bar, and integrated appliances such as an eye-level electric oven and hob.

Moving towards the rear of the kitchen, you'll find a lobby area leading to a substantial conservatory that overlooks the charming courtyard garden. Additionally, there's a contemporary shower room featuring a sizable shower cubicle, a vanity wash hand basin, and a close-coupled WC.

Ascending to the first floor, you'll discover a double bedroom with open views situated at the front of the cottage, offering a pleasing outlook. Towards the rear, there's a convenient dressing room equipped with built-in wardrobe cupboards and modern amenities, including a vanity wash hand basin and WC. This layout provides flexibility and convenience for residents. The dressing room could possibly be converted to provide a third bedroom.

The second floor presents a spacious double bedroom featuring a large dormer window that floods the space with abundant natural light and offers far-reaching, panoramic views.

Access to the cottage is provided through a pedestrian-only footpath off of Wakeham. At the front, you'll find a charming paved courtyard adorned with flower beds, creating an inviting and picturesque entrance. A footpath guides you to the rear of the property, where you'll discover another spacious paved courtyard garden. This area boasts several outbuildings, including a utility room equipped with plumbing for a washing machine, as well as a substantial timber workshop. These outdoor spaces offer practicality and the potential for various uses.

The heating of radiators is via an oil fired boiler.
