Property description

Two/three bedroom end terrace cottage

Fantastic development opportunity to purchase this spacious two/three bedroom end of terrace cottage within the rural locale of Tarbrax. The accommodation comprises entrance hall, lounge, kitchen, two/three bedrooms, family bathroom and w.C. This was previously a three bedroom house until the wall splitting the two bedrooms was removed due to the floorboards being lifted because of rotten joists. This building requires extensive renovation works and can offer a sizeable return on investment.

Unsafe properties
Unsafe properties are evidently in a condition that poses a serious risk to the health or safety of occupants or visitors, or where the way the home is marketed suggests it is unsuitable for occupation in that condition. There is little point in a condition survey being undertaken on a home that is unfit for occupation in any case, and is being advertised as such.
