    I am reluctant to divulge the location as I have only had an offer accepted!

    Roof looks in decent shape but needs re-slating, walls need stripping back to brick and re plastering and 2 massive chimney stacks knocking out.

    Cellar is nice and dry so hopefully not to many damp problems but there is some movement in the brickwork over the bay windows, could be normal settling but if it need steel work going in there that would add to the cost greatly.

    Kitchen/bathrooms need sorting and putting an en-suite in a bedroom upstairs, needs a full re-wire and boiler/rads/plumbing system.

    Prob going to insulate inside the exterior wall to try to keep some heat in, no cavity in houses this age so they can cost a lot to heat.

    Hopefully 60k might do it but need to have extra in case it all goes tits up.
