Rare opportunity to buy house and cottage

It is very rare that neighbouring properties come to the market at the same time and even rarer that they be in the same ownership.

Edwin Thompson Swan House and Cygnet Cottage

The aptly called Swan House and Cygnet Cottage in West Street, Norham, are just such a case.

This is a really great opportunity for a purchaser to buy a lovely two bedroom house with a charming one bedroom cottage attached. The current owners have let the property out to holiday makers and it has proved a great success, but it could just as easily be used for a dependant relative or as a long term let.

No. 25 is a well proportioned two bed house with generous reception space and No. 27 is a charming one bed cottage. Swan House and Cygnet Cottage have the added benefit of having a secure garage facing onto West Street that could subject to planning be integrated into the cottage creating a second bedroom.

Swan House has a sun room overlooking the garden and Cygnet Cottage has a bright patio providing the ideal space for enjoying the sunshine. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with some mature fruit tree, and shrubs. There are two out houses and a greenhouse as well as an outside WC. There is vehicular access to the garden at rear and potential, again subject to planning to build a garage or a studio/home office.

Swan House has generous reception space with two reception rooms, and a large sun room which has plenty of space for a table and chairs and sofas.

Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and a bathroom, there is also a large attic room that is fully boarded and has rear facing velux windows providing plenty of light.

The cottage has a warm reception room, a kitchen breakfast room a good sized double bedroom and a wet room.

Swan House and Cygnet Cottage would offer any purchaser the opportunity of creating a viable income stream from the cottage should it be desired whilst having a charming home.
