AUCTION  Nestled in the picturesque village of Borrowash, this unique three/four-bedroom detached cottage is a remarkable opportunity for those seeking a project or investors with an eye for potential. This property's history is as fascinating as its layout – previously three separate cottages seamlessly converted into one, offering the prospect of crafting something truly extraordinary. With a generous plot of land to the rear and access running down the side, there's even the tantalizing possibility of building another dwelling, subject to planning permission. Approach this property as a one-of-a-kind canvas upon which to paint your vision of a dream home.

Upon entering, the ground floor unfolds as a seamless, open expanse. The first section welcomes you with a charming reception room, complete with a dual-facing exposed brick fireplace and rustic wooden beams that add character to the space. A step down leads you to the stairs and kitchen area, running the full width of the property, granting serene views of the garden. Facing towards the front are the second and third reception rooms, each uniquely separated by wooden archways, awaiting your imaginative touch.

Ascend to the first floor, where you're greeted by a spacious landing providing access to the first double bedroom, with views to the front. The journey continues, guiding you to the second bedroom and the well-positioned family bathroom. Beyond the bathroom, you'll discover the third and fourth double bedrooms, each a canvas ready for your customization.

While the layout may be unconventional, it's this very quirkiness that unveils a world of potential. With a configuration tailored to your needs, this property offers a unique opportunity to unlock its hidden treasures and maximize the use of the expansive land area.
