Overall Description

This is a substantial semi-detached Victorian semi-detached house down a pleasant residential road in the centre of Ponders End. The property has lovely high ceilings and much of its original character but does require complete modernisation, with scope to extend to the rear, and into the large loft (as others have along the road). It offers excellent potential to create a large family home - or perhaps a couple of flats (subject to the usual consents). The house currently has a nice long entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen and dining room with bay window looking down the garden on the ground floor. Upstairs is a good-sized landing (with space for a return staircase if you do convert the loft - which seems an obvious move), three bedrooms and a bathroom (the bathroom suite has been removed but the plumbing is all there). Outside there is a 130' long garden with plenty of mature trees, brick built garden WC and a side entrance leading back to the front. If you are looking for a major project either for yourself or to do the property up and sell it on/rent it out then this large Victorian house is an ideal opportunity. The property is being sold by Informal Tender with a Guide Price of £375,000-£400,000. We have Open Days booked for 11am to 12 noon on Sat the 9th of September, and 1pm to 2pm on Sat the 16th of September. INFORMAL TENDER with a deadline for "Best & Final" offers by 12 noon on Tuesday 19th September. Please call to make an appointment.

Location

The property is located in Ponders End, a bustling local community in the Borough of Enfield, just east of the A10 and around a ten minutes walk from both Southbury station (Liverpool St 31 minutes) and Ponders End station (Liverpool Street 20 minutes, Tottenham Hale 6 minutes), and with plenty of bus services up and down the High Street. There is a good selection of local shops up and down the High Street with larger retailers and other amenities in the Enfield Retail Park on the A10 (Morrisons, Sainsburys, B&Q, Cineworld Cinema). Nearby schools include the St Matthews C of E Primary School, Zion Tuition, Heron Hall Secondary Acadamy and the One Degree Academy. The Ponders End Recreation Ground is a five minute walk away and a five minute drive takes you to the Lee Valley Leisure Complex which includes a golf course, athletics track, camp site, indoor bowls club, multiplex cinema and restaurants.
