Property Details

4 2 2
Note - the property has been subject to subsidence. A well proportioned detached family home with four bedrooms and situated in the favoured Wyke area of the town and close to local facilities, which include a One Stop shop with post office, hairdressers and computer shop. The town centre and mainline train station are also within easy reach as are some beautiful countryside walks. The property is situated in a quiet cul de sac built, in the mid 1980's by a well known local builder and has been the much loved and enjoyed home to our seller for the last seventeen years. This lovely home offers comfortable living with versatile accommodation providing scope for a ground floor bedroom and shower room and the opportunity to update to ones' own choice. The property benefits from wood framed double glazing, gas fired central heating from a combination boiler and sits in nicely proportioned established grounds. A viewing is absolutely necessary to really appreciate the flexibility, room sizes and easy to use layout as well as its location, which is where town and country start to merge.
