Lot 100: FREEHOLD TOWN CENTRE THREE BEDROOM COTTAGE FOR IMPROVEMENT

Situated a short walk/drive from the centre of Newport, the Island’s County town, this unusual mid-terrace house is situated in a popular residential road and offers a blank canvas for the new owners to complete a programme of upgrading and refurbishment that have been commenced but require completion.

The property is unusual in that while the ground floor accommodation runs the full length of the building, it has first floor accommodation at the front and separately again, via a second staircase, at the rear. This gives scope and potential for a small annexe to the rear or potentially an office/study, given the current enthusiasm for home working.

Planning Permission has been granted by the local authority to remove a chimney breast and re-shape the staircase to the first floor at the front, though there is, of course, no obligation on the new owner to proceed with these works. Other properties in the road have exploited the roof space to provide additional bedrooms and this is anther option, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
