Property Details

2 2 1
A nicely proportioned end of terrace modern home with two double sized bedrooms, presented to the market with the bonus of no onward chain and enjoying a tucked away position in a popular residential area where town and country merge. The property is about nineteen years and has been owned by our sellers for the last sixteen years. During this time it has been well maintained and improved with the addition of a conservatory and has been a successful investment property for the last thirteen years. However, this lovely home would make a great first time buy, wonderful first time family home or equally as a downsize or lock up and leave UK base. The property benefits from uPVC double glazing throughout and gas fired central heating via radiators. A viewing is strongly advisable, not just to appreciate the property itself but also its surroundings and location, which is within reach of local facilities, which include a doctors' surgery, dentist, public house serving food with a Coop convenience store, hairdressers and fish and chip shop a little further on. The town centre and mainline train station are about a mile away.
