Overall Description

"Vicarage View" is an attractive Victorian end-of-terraced house in a very convenient central location within the popular commuter town of Ware. The property is in need of modernisation but does offer potential buyers the opportunity to create a stylish contemporary home to meet their own style and tastes and unlike many other similar properties in the area, it has an upstairs bathroom (making it two bedrooms rather than three). Currently the ground floor has two reception rooms, a sitting room to the front and dining room to the rear, from which you access the galley style kitchen and utility room. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and a good-sized bathroom. The property has a small paved front garden with lockable gate leading to shared access to the rear. The gardens are a good-size and split into two portions, an area of patio by the French doors from the kitchen and a pleasant garden area beyond with mature shrub and fence borders and a garden shed. The property has gas central-heating and is mostly double-glazed although the electrics will need some updating. The property is subject to probate (which has been applied for) and there is no forward chain. Viewing is highly recommended so please call to book an appointment. We have an Open Day booked for 10am to 11am on Saturday the 6th of August so please call to book a time slot.
