Property Details

2 2 1
A delightful end of terraced home with two double sized bedrooms, large sunny rear garden and boasting a quiet location, within walking distance to the town centre and the mainline train station. We believe that the cottage dates to the early 1900s and retains characterful features, which include original fireplaces, picture rails and wood flooring as well as sash windows. The cottage benefits from gas fired central heating and uPVC double glazing. The property has been the very much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last six years. During this time it has been well maintained and improved with a stylish contemporary bathroom suite, new front door and re-decoration throughout. In addition the large sunny rear garden has been beautifully landscaped and will certainly be a hit with many potential buyers. This well presented property must be viewed to really appreciate the size of the rooms and the outside space and an early viewing is strongly recommended to avoid missing out on the chance to purchase this wonderful home.
