Property Details

3 1 2
An individually designed detached home offering choice as to room usage with two/three double bedrooms and one/two reception rooms. This attractive chalet style home is situated in the favoured Wyke area of the town, within walking distance to local amenities, which includes a One Stop with post office, hairdressers and computer shop plus a primary school. The town centre and mainline train station are also within easy reach, as are some beautiful countryside walks. The property was built in the mid 1970s and in keeping with the era boasts well proportioned rooms, flooded with plenty of natural light from the large windows and an easy to use flexible layout. Our sellers have been in residence for about eleven years - during this time they have invested a great deal of time and energy to create a stylish, contemporary home that will certainly get the seal of approval from many potential viewers. The roof has been replaced, re-wiring has been carried out and new flooring laid throughout with heating under from the combination gas boiler. The kitchen units have been replaced with fashionable soft closing cupboards and integrated appliances and the bathrooms suites have been updated in line with current trends. The windows have been replaced by uPVC double glazing, all the internal doors have been renewed to oak doors, the composite front door is finished in an oak style and matches the garage doors and a new drive has been laid. In addition the gardens have benefited from landscaping and a work from home cabin has been installed in the garden. Viewing is essential to truly appreciate what this home has to offer and a note worthy point to make is that the sellers are suited with an end of chain empty property.
