Property Details

2 1 1
**OFF ROAD PARKING AND GARAGE OPPORTUNITY SUBJECT TO PLANNING**END OF CHAIN**CENTRAL LOCATION** A wonderful chance to purchase a charming mid terraced cottage in need of modernisation and presented to the market with the bonus of no onward chain. The property is situated within a short walk to the town centre where there is a selection of independent shops and chain stores, doctor and dentist surgeries and a variety of entertainment venues. The cottage offers nicely proportioned rooms and although comfortable in its current state is in need of some general maintenance and updating. The property benefits from uPVC double glazing and economy 7 electric heating. An early viewing is highly advisable to avoid missing out on the opportunity of owning this little gem.

In brief, the ground floor accommodation consists of combined sitting and dining room with brick fireplace, kitchen, rear lobby and bathroom. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, one double and one single size. Outside there is a sunny and private L shaped rear garden that is in need of some management.
