Property Details

3 1 3
A delightful detached chalet style home, presented to the market with no onward chain, offering well proportioned, flexible accommodation with two/three double bedrooms and boasting views of Duncliffe Woods to the rear. The property is situated in the much favoured Wyke area of the town, just a short walk to local facilities, which include a One Stop shop with post office, hairdressers and computer shop. The town centre and mainline train station are also within easy reach as are some beautiful countryside walks. The property is situated in a quiet cul de sac built, in the mid 1980's by a well known local builder and offers comfortable living with versatile space, scope to work from home and the opportunity to update to ones' own choice. The property benefits from double glazing, gas fired central heating from a combination boiler and sits in nice sized enclosed grounds. A viewing is absolutely necessary to really appreciate the flexibility, room sizes and easy to use layout as well as its location, which is where town and country start to merge.
