Overall Description

This large Victorian town house has obvious potential for development, either by converting the property into apartments or by modernising it to create a substantial character family home with large garden. The house needs complete refurbishment throughout, and does not currently have central heating, although it has recently had a refurbished roof. The house is laid out over three floors with large entrance hall, three receptions a kitchen and cloakroom on the ground floor. On the middle floor there are three bedrooms, a bathroom and kitchenette, with two further bedrooms on the top floor. The property is typical of Victorian town houses with its high ceilings, large windows, fireplaces (replaced in the 50's) and very good-sized receptions and bedrooms - in all around 1,750 square feet. The garden to the rear is around 75' long with central lawn and well-stocked floor beds. The property is being sold by Informal Tender with a guide price range of £650,000 to £700,000 and a deadline for "best and final" offers of 12 noon on Tuesday the 20th of June. We have a Second Open House this Saturday 17th June from 1.30-2.30pm. Please call to make an appointment.
