Property Overview

Excellent investment opportunity: 2 Bedroom semi-detached bungalow in a quiet cul-de-sac, village location requiring full modernisation. This property would make a lovely home, a buy to let or an opportunity to convert it into a saleable sought after home.

What a fantastic opportunity to take a semi-detached home and turn it into anything that you'd like it to be. Having hardly been touched since the '60s this house requires modernising so you could do as much, or as little, as you wish to it. Currently, it has a kitchen, living room, bathroom and two double bedrooms, one of which could be used as a dining room with a door out into the conservatory. With the necessary planning consents, there are many different options to update and extend if you so wish. There is huge potential.

Outside, I have gardens to the front and rear of the property plus a drive which would allow you to allow for off road / off street parking for at least two cars. There is also a large single garage.

I'm on a quiet cul-de-sac in the village of Killinghall which has a primary school, two pubs and a doctors surgery. Buses run to Harrogate, Ripon and Leeds every 15 minutes. There is a good train service to Leeds and York from Harrogate which includes a weekday direct service to London. Harrogate Town Centre is just a 10-minute drive away. Leeds-Bradford Airport is just over 30 minutes away.

Auctioneer's Comments

Allowing the additional time to exchange contracts means interested parties can proceed with traditional residential finance.

  • A non-refundable Reservation Fee of 4.2% of the final agreed sale price including VAT - this is subject to a minimum of £6,000.00 including VAT - which reserves the property from sale by securing the transaction and takes the property off the market. The Reservation Fee is paid in addition to the final negotiated selling price.
  • A non-refundable Buyer Information Pack fee of £200.00 including VAT towards the preparation cost of the pack, if the Buyer Information Pack has been produced and provided by IAM Sold.

Energy Performance Certificate (EPCs)

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All homes bought, sold or rented require an EPC. EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
