HOUSE hunters can soon bid for a cute countryside cottage which is set to go under the hammer.

The small property, situated in the Wyre Forest of Rock, has been described as having "real chocolate box cottage potential."

2 Stone Cottages is a semi-detached residence which will have a guide price of £115,000 when it goes to auction in late October.

Jonathan Hackett, consultant director at auctioneers Bond Wolfe said the property also has the space available for potential development, subject to planning permission.

Mr Hackett said: “This property has real potential to become the cute countryside cottage of someone’s dreams, although it is in need of improvement works.

“The cottage stands back from the road behind a front garden and has a porch, reception room, kitchen and bathroom downstairs, with a landing and two bedrooms upstairs.

“The property benefits from electric heating and has gardens to the front, side and rear, plus a side garage.

“There also is great potential development space to the side, subject to planning permission.”

Mr Hackett added: “Rock is a desirable rural village and is well-placed for the Wyre Forest and attractive towns such as Bewdley and Kidderminster.”

The cottage is just one among several lots that are appearing in Bond Wolfe’s next auction, which will start at 9am on Thursday, October 26.
