Property Details

3 2 2
A fetching detached family home with three double bedrooms, presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain and situated in a popular residential area where town and country merge. We believe that the property was built in about 1991 and has been the very much cherished and enjoyed home to our seller since new. During this time it has been exceptionally well maintained and has benefited from replacement double glazing and gas central heating boiler. This delightful home provides well proportioned bright rooms with plenty of natural light and allows for flexible usage with the dining room offering itself as a potential fourth bedroom. The property is located on the edge of town, close to some wonderful river and countryside walks and within walking distance of a doctor and dental surgery, public house that serves food, primary school, as well as a Co-op store, hairdressers and fish and chip shop. The town centre is a little further on as is the mainline train station. The lovely home must be viewed to really appreciate what it has to offer and how easily it will satisfy many buyers' needs.
