If, like us, you’re a big fan of Homes Under The Hammer, you will love this country cottage.
Cue cheesy and appropriate music “Country roads take me home” or what about “Go wild in the country”.
We’ll admit this property isn’t gorgeous but it certainly has the potential to be chocolate-box pretty.
Number 6 South View, Hunton, near Bedale, is in need of complete modernisation. It hasn’t even got a bathroom, although it does have an outside loo.
At £50,000, the guide price looks exciting. The pictures do too, in our opinion, but then we love the idea of a project.
The house is up for auction with one of our favourite Yorkshire estate agents, Robin Jessop, and will go under the hammer on April 16 in Northallerton.
Inside, it has a sitting room with feature fireplace, exposed beams and stone-flagged floors, a dining kitchen with original cast iron range and a kitchen with Belfast sink and a rear pantry.
On the first floor, there are three bedrooms. Outside, there are gardens to the front and rear.
The village of Hunton has lots of amenities, including a village shop, pub and a primary school. It’s within easy reach of the A1 at Leeming Bar.
The auction is on April 16 (unless the cottage is sold before). It starts at 7pm at Allerton Court Hotel, Northallerton. For details visit www.robinjessop.co.uk
