'The Hawthorns' is one of the oldest properties in Whitchurch village, dating back to approximately 1850 and owned by the same family for over 100 years. This three bedroom character cottage is in need of a full renovation to be brought up to its full potential and will make a lovely family home with an extensive garden and off road parking. The ground floor accommodation consists of three reception rooms, a good size kitchen extension with cloakroom and utility room and two spacious hallways. Upstairs has three bedrooms and the family bathroom. 

The cottage sits on a third of an acre plot, with extensive gardens to the side and front. Subject to the necessary planning consents, there is plenty of space for an extension without impacting the size of the garden. There are pleasant views up to St Andrew's Church and over surrounding fields, and you are also only a short walk to The Whitchurch Inn pub, post office and Whitchurch Down. The gardens are mostly lawn with a stone wall to the side and a path leading to what would have been the original front entrance. At the rear of the property is a parking area for 4/5 vehicles with a stream running along the boundary of the plot. There is a single garage to the side as well as two piggeries attached to the back of the house.

The property is offered to the market with no onward chain and is going to be sold by informal tender with a closing date of 12 noon 4th March 2022.
