Property Details

3 2 1
An attractive looking semi detached family home with three good sized bedrooms, situated in the sought after Wyke area of the town and within walking distance to the town, train station and some fabulous river and country side walks. The property was built in the early 1990s and has been the much loved and happy home to our sellers for over twenty two years. During this time the property has been extremely well maintained and in the early years benefitted from solid wood replacement kitchen units, a conservatory was added and more recently the en-suite has been enlarged and the mixer tap renewed as well as the kitchen work top being improved with 'Granite Transformation'. The property also benefits from uPVC double glazing throughout, gas fired central heating and an electric remote controlled up and over garage door. This lovely home provides bright well proportioned rooms and will certainly satisfy the needs of many potential buyers' needs - from those looking for their first home to those looking for an interim downsize as well as an investment or lock up and leave UK base. A viewing is vital to truly appreciate what is on offer and an early viewing will definitely be required to avoid missing out on the chance to be the next lucky owner of this wonderful home.
