Property Details

3 3 1
A wonderful opportunity to purchase a bright and roomy individual detached family home with three generously sized bedrooms, potential to create an annexe and situated in a favoured road, which is a short level walk to the town centre and mainline train station. The exact date of the property is unknown but believed to be around the 1930/40s and has been the very much loved and enjoyed family home to our sellers for over thirty five years. During this time it has been extremely well maintained and improved as well as being re-configured to provide better use of space. A conservatory was added to offer interchangeable space with the snug and replacement kitchen units were fitted about ten years ago. The property also benefits from a new gas fired central heating boiler and uPVC double glazed windows, both of which were installed about four years ago, the roof was also replaced and the chimney being re-built at the same time. The garages have been re-wired and offer potential to create an annexe, if required and subject to the necessary permissions. This lovely home must be viewed to truly appreciate how it will satisfy many potential buyers' needs and its location. An early viewing is strongly urged to avoid missing out on the chance to be the next lucky owner.
