Overall Description

This is a 1930's semi-detached house in an elevated position on a pleasant residential street close to local shops and other amenities. The property is in need of complete modernisation and renovation, but also offers buyers great potential to create a larger property to suit their needs, either by converting the loft into a fourth en-suite bedroom, or by adding a single storey extension to the rear as others have in the area, subject to the usual consents. The property currently has three bedrooms, two doubles, a bathroom and separate cloakroom upstairs, whilst downstairs there is an entrance hall, two reception rooms and a galley kitchen. The house has a shared driveway to the side with garage and a back garden with patio and mature trees. The property is being sold with no onward chain.
