RARE OPPORTUNITY to acquire a three-bedroom detached cottage with OUTLINE PLANNING PERMISSION GRANTED for two detached single storey dwellings (AVA/2023/0068).

Whilst the charming cottage benefits from many character features, it does require significant refurbishment but offers a wealth of potential throughout. Believed to have originally belonged to the former estate of Smalley Hall, our clients believe it was once the Gardeners Cottage. The property is sold with the benefit of no upward chain, gas fired central heating and rear southerly aspect garden. Situated on a plot of approx. 0.24 acres, there is also a single detached garage, outside stores and two greenhouses. Whilst the garden is well stocked with fruit trees, shrubs and plants, outline planning permission has been granted for two detached single storey dwellings within its boundaries (AVA/2023/0068).

Smalley is a highly desirable village known for its diverse range of amenities including a well-regarded primary school, a charming pub, convenient post office, church, vibrant cricket club and a recreational ground. Residents can enjoy scenic walks at nearby Shipley Park. The nearby town of Heanor is within easy reach and offers a further array of services and facilities. Commuters will appreciate the proximity to both Derby and Nottingham, making work travel convenient. Additionally, golf enthusiasts are close to the nearby courses at Morley Hayes and Horsley Lodge.

The cottage is accessed via a composite door into porch area with an opening into the dining room. There are doors off to the sitting room, garden room and kitchen.

Moving into the kitchen, it has a range of wall and base cupboards, rolled edge preparation surfaces with inset stainless steel sink with adjacent drainer and a chrome mixer tap over with tile splashback surround. There is an electric oven, four ring gas hob, appliance spaces and plumbing for a washing machine and fridge plus the wall mounted Worcester gas boiler.

The garden room benefits from the sunny southerly aspect and has a door providing access to the rear garden.

Walking into the sitting room that has a brick fireplace housing a burner with wooden lintel and a tiled hearth. There are doors off to the snug and utility room plus a staircase to the first floor.

The snug has an open brick fireplace with door providing access to the side garden area.
