The property is located on the fringe of the town yet within level walking distance to local amenities, which include a Coop store, petrol station with shop attached, various takeaways and the primary school. The town centre and other facilities are also within easy reach. The property was built about 30 years ago as part of a self build group by our sellers and has been the very much cherished and enjoyed home to the family since then. During the course of time the property has been extremely well maintained and benefits from windows to the front having attractive lead light bars, window sills, soffits, barge boards etc are uPVC for low maintenance. The main bathroom and en-suite shower room are fully tiled with modern white suites and chrome ladder style radiators plus power showers in en-suites. The kitchen has been updated with replacement units and work surfaces and a new driveway has recently been laid.
