THE PROPERTY
Situated in wooded surroundings within the famous RSPB bird sanctuary at Minsmere this semi detached property affords the rarest of opportunities to own a property in the heart of this bird reserve a couple of minutes walk or so from the RSPB centre. The property, which has oil fired heating and double glazed windows, is in need of a programme of updating but would seemingly make the perfect second home, particularly for bird watchers, and with excellent potential to develop a strong income stream with potential year round lettings. The front hall gives access to both reception rooms with the sitting room having a fireplace and double aspect windows and the kitchen having a range of fitted units with fitted worksurfaces, built in sink, split level cooker with oven and hob, shelved pantry and door to outside. On the first floor the landing gives separate access to all three bedrooms and bathroom and has an airing cupboard with hot water cylinder with immersion heater. 1 Vault Hill Cottages has good sized gardens which are wedge shaped and surround the property and are laid to grass, shrubs and established trees. Garden work shed with wood store attached, coal bunker and brick built barbeque. Attached to the property is an outside WC and separate Storage cupboard with the modern water pumping system and it would be relatively easy to incorporate this into the main property (subject to planning and building regulations).
