A VERY RARE FIND, A SEMI-DETACHED COTTAGE IN THE HEART OF WICK ST LAWRENCE...........Built in the 13th Century, this property was originally called Castle Cottage as it use to have a 12ft high wall surrounding the perimeter which had slots for firing arrows as it was regularly attacked by the Roundheads arriving by sea from Wick Wharf, remnants of the slots can still be seen in the outside garage wall. It was also been used to accommodate the workman who built the parish church, but for the last 70 years, it has been owned by one family.
The cottage would benefit from some updating but really does ooze character and history with the accommodation comprising hallway, inner hallway, an amazing lounge with the most incredible inglenook fireplace with central wood burner, dining room with double doors onto the garden, kitchen/breakfast room, office, cloakroom, 3 bedrooms, bathroom, en-suite cloakroom, and a rear porch area.
The property sits on a fantastic plot, and you have superb gardens that are perfect for entertaining and enjoying the sunny afternoons. To the rear you have a driveway that provides ample off street parking and a double garage.
So if you want a backwater location, want large gardens, want a bit of history, then House Fox estate agents, recommend you call today, as properties like this are very rarely available.
