OVERVIEW Hollydene is a freehold grade 2 listed middle terrace thatched cottage that provides the opportunity to buy a little piece of English heritage. Hollydene is a part of Goldbook, which according to a historic entry, is believed to have been a substantial thatched detached house, since many years ago having been split into three dwellings. The property offers two bedrooms on the first floor (interconnected) and three outdoor spaces. Immediately to the rear and front the property presents with cottage gardens and separately a large wild garden with the brook forming the end boundary point. The property is characterful with exposed beams adding to its charm. Downstairs accommodation is provided by its cozy sitting room with inglenook fireplace and log burner, a small room that is currently used as a store but would make for a study for homeworking and a decent size kitchen / diner. The bathroom with separated WC is also located on the ground floor. Whilst the property does not have off road parking, off road parking is available within the village hall public carpark to be found more or less opposite Hollydene. Located in the picturesque rural village of Hoxne. It is likely that the property would appeal to first time buyers or would make a restful holiday retreat which could be a suitable candidate for short term holiday lets.

HOW IT WORKS Unconditional Timed Auction Online: This is a binding method of sale similar to a traditional multi-lot public property auction. The only difference is the bidding takes place on line. The successful purchaser will be required to pay a 10% deposit on the fall of the virtual gavel and contracts will be exchanged. Bidding for properties online works in a similar fashion to eBay. You can place bids using your PC, tablet or mobile phone and the minimum amount you can bid is defined by the 'bid increment' level. When you place a bid, the property listing page will show you if your bid was successful and whether or not you are the highest bidder. When you are the highest bidder on a property, if another· bidder outbids you the system will notify you by email so that you can place another bid if you wish. The major difference from eBay is that our system eradicates sudden death 'bid sniping' through the use of auction 'extension times'. If you have any questions or require any clarification please contact the auctioneer.
