Lot 17 - Lock Cottage, Lock Cottage, Bettws, Newport, Gwent, NP20 7AE

  • Unconditional Online Auction Sale
  • Guide Price* : £75,000+

Residential Opportunity/Development Opportunity



A rare opportunity to acquire a detached cottage with land adjacent to the Monmouthshire and Brecon canal. The property offers huge potential either for refurbishment of the existing property or re development of the site (subject to neccessary planning consents).

The canal offers amazing walks or cycling opportunities for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits but is also convenient for access to both local amenities, Newport city centre and the M4 motorway. The property would be ideal for homeowners wanting a secluded retreat, for investment for buy to let, a holiday let or for a builder wanting to re develop the land for either one or two new dwellings (subject to necessary planning consents).

The property requires modernisation and has 1 / 2 bedrooms (currently interconnecting) and electric storage heaters. The gardens extend to the front, side and rear of the property and offer huge potential.

Use NP20 7RB for location. Proceed straight down Mill Heath to the bottom where the road turns left, please park along this section of the road (look out for yellow salt/grit bin) and then follow by foot the lane to your right leading to Lock Cottage.


Ground Floor: Entrance, kitchen, bathroom, lounge
First Floor: 1/2 bedrooms
Outside: Garden areas to front side and rear with hedge and part fenced surrounds.


To be sold with vacant possession


Advised Freehold - to be verified by solicitor
