A chance to create the home of your dreams!
An opportunity to purchase a cottage property in a delightful setting with large rear gardens. Work to extend and improve the property has ceased due to a change of circumstances for the seller. Therefore, there is a real opportunity to continue the work started and complete the property to the buyers own specification.
There is scope to create something really special.
The tranquil village of Fimber lies quietly at both sides of the B1251 and is settled into the hillside. It forms around the village mere which is presided over by the small church on the hill which looks down over the village. Access to the church is via a lovely stone archway.
Given that there is a huge flexibility in how the property will be finished, the description contained within these particulars is merely a guide as to the size of the rooms. Please refer to the floor layout plan for a more detailed impression of the layout.
