Property Details

4 2 3
A spacious semi detached family home with four double bedrooms, situated in a quiet area - overlooking recreational grounds and within an easy walk of the town centre and some delightful countryside walks. The property is located in a popular residential area, close to schooling for all ages and the town, which offers a selection of independent shops and chain stores, doctor and dentist surgeries and a range of entertainment venues. The property has been a very much cherished and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last ten years. During this time they have invested a great deal of time and energy transforming a tired and dated property into a stylish, contemporary home that will certainly satisfy many potential buyers requirements. The property has benefitted from an addition to the side that has created a large main bedroom suite, garage and work from home space, kitchen units and bathroom suites have been replaced, durable Travertine tiling laid to the main reception areas and most of the windows have been renewed. A new gas fired combination boiler has been installed and the front has been K rendered for easy maintenance. This lovely home offers an easy to use layout with some room use flexibility and has to be viewed to really appreciate the size of the rooms, the outside space and the location. An early viewing is strongly recommended to avoid missing out on the chance to purchase this wonderful home.
