Overall Description

This 1930's terraced house is in need of complete internal modernisation yet also has scope for significant enlargement and improvement, either by converting the loft space into another bedroom, perhaps with en-suite, or by extending at the rear to create a larger kitchen/dining room (both of which have been done to the neighbouring property under permitted development). The property sits in a quiet and desirable location close to good schools and transport links, so if you are looking for a project to turn into your dream family home, to suit your own tastes, or an investment property to rent out or sell on, then you should definitely book a viewing. Currently, the house has a fairly typical 1930's layout with three bedrooms, a bathroom and cloakroom upstairs and a hallway, two receptions and galley kitchen on the ground floor. The property does not have central heating, although there is a gas supply in the kitchen, and it also has the original single-glazed timber windows as well as dated wiring, but it does have much of its original character including the period fireplaces in the sitting room and master bedroom, as well as bay windows to the front, wooden floorboards and picture rails. The back garden is 90' long with a couple of apple trees as well as a pre-fab concrete garage at the rear with access to the street down a shared driveway.

Location

The property sits in a quiet and sought-after residential location just a ten to fifteen minutes walk from Gidea Park and Romford mainline railway stations with their regular commuter services to London Liverpool Street as well as Romford Underground Station (Romford Station is part of Crossrail so will become part of the Elizabeth Line linking to Paddington and Heathrow). The property is a short walk to the excellent shops and other amenities of Romford, including the Liberty and Mercury Shopping Centres with their array of popular High Street outlets. The property also has good local schools close by including the Gidea Park Primary School and Gidea Park College. Lodge Farm Park and Raphael Park and both walking distance as is Romford Golf Course. In summary, it is an excellent location to raise a family.
