Property Details

4 3 2
A bright and spacious detached family home ideally situated in one of the town's most desirable and sought after roads, just a short walk to the high street, schooling for all ages and in striking distance of the mainline train station serving London and the West Country. We believe that the property was built in the 1970s and in keeping with the era boasts well proportioned rooms flooded with plenty of natural light from the large windows. During the property's lifetime it has only had two owners with our selling family being in residence for the last twenty two years. During this time it has been well maintained and improved with a rear and first floor extension, new bathroom suites and kitchen units, cavity wall and loft insulation. It also benefits from some recent redecoration and new flooring to the hall, stairs and landing. This wonderful property certainly will go a long way to meet many buyers needs from those looking for a family home to those looking for an interim downsize on retirement. There is also the potential to create an annexe for a dependent relative. Viewing is a must to really appreciate what this home can offer the next lucky owner.
