A truly rare opportunity to purchase a detached two bedroom cottage, in need of renovation, in a tucked away location in Freshwater Bay. The property has sea glimpses to the front and features a good sized garden and an attached garage.
The property does require some upgrading and modernisation and offers great potential to provide a comfortable home ideally suited as a permanent or second home/holiday retreat. The accommodation comprises a sitting room to the front with a sea glimpse, open plan kitchen/dining room, sun room and potential shower room to the rear. To the first floor there are two good double bedrooms (one with a sea glimpse) and a large bathroom. There is a good garden to the side and rear of the cottage with a large outbuilding offering annexe potential.
Tucked away along a ‘No Through’ private road, the property is close to local footpaths and bridleways giving access to miles of downland and coastal walks and is also within a few hundred yards of the beach and Nature Reserve in Freshwater Bay.

To the side of the property is a pedestrian gated access to a side area of garden leading through to the rear garden. The rear area of garden houses a useful annexe building which requires upgrading and modernisation, but provides great potential for additional separate 1 bedroomed self contained accommodation if required. At the end of the rear garden is a footpath which gives access down onto Gate Lane and there is a right of way over part of the pathway for the neighbouring property. Beyond the rear footpath the land extends into another larger area of garden.
