Overall Description

This modern semi-detached house sits down a quiet cul-de-sac just north of New Beckton Park. There are two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, with a good-sized sitting room and separate kitchen/dining room downstairs, both of which are dual aspect and overlooking the garden. The property does have double-glazed Upvc windows and gas central-heating, although it would benefit from general modernisation which over time will no-doubt include a new boiler and up-graded electrics.
