Property Details

3 1 1
A wonderful chance to purchase a lovingly restored end of terrace Victorian home with three good sized bedrooms, enjoying some countryside views in the distance and within walking distance to the town centre. The property dates to 1896 when it is believed to have been two houses, which have historically combined to form one spacious double fronted home that over the last two and half years has benefited from a sympathetic update marrying modern day conveniences with traditional features. The property retains many character features, such as two lovely Victorian fireplaces, the original pine floorboards plus deep skirting boards and high ceilings. To cater for today's needs the property benefits from uPVC double glazing and a combination gas fired central heating boiler, which is about five years old. This beautifully presented home also has new soft closing kitchen units with solid oak work surfaces and some integrated appliances, a new stylish bathroom suite and has been decorated throughout using Farrow & Ball paint. This bright and well laid out home must be viewed to truly appreciate just what it has to offer as well as its location within the town.
