17th Century thatched cottage up for sale
A Grade II listed three-bedroomed detached thatched cottage near Loughborough, thought to be more than 350 years-old, is among the stand-out properties at Bond Wolfe Auctions’ next auction later this month.
Set in the historic village of Rempstone, which was recorded in the Domesday Book, the thatched cottage has been entered for sale with a highly attractive guide price* of just £225,000+ in the online-only, live-streamed auction on Wednesday 28 October.
The Thatch, at 6 Main Street, Rempstone, is thought to date from around the 1650s and wears its history on its sleeve, with exposed beams, open fireplaces and whitewashed walls throughout.
It stands back from the road behind a foregarden, with a gravelled rear garden, and comprises a hall, two large reception rooms, kitchen, WC and potential study or bedroom on the ground floor. On the first floor there is a bathroom with WC as well as three bedrooms, one with en suite shower and WC.
In a rural setting, a short distance from Loughborough, this period property has been tastefully refurbished and modernised, with a gas-fired central heating system and a fitted kitchen with granite worktops. There is ample off-road parking and room for a garage, subject to suitable planning permission.
Jonathan Hackett, consultant director at Bond Wolfe Auctions, said: “This is a rare opportunity to acquire an historic home with character to spare at an exceptional price. Given its rural surroundings and fully expect highly competitive bidding when this property comes up for sale.
“It is in remarkable condition, well fitted throughout and is set to become some lucky bidder’s dream home.”
The freehold property is part of a catalogue of 212 properties to be offered on Wednesday 28 October in what will be the fourth online auction held by Bond Wolfe Auctions since COVID-19 restrictions were introduced in March.
In 2020, year to date, Bond Wolfe Auctions has sold 685 lots raising £72.5 million.
