Property Details

3 3 2
A well presented and maintained semi detached family home with three good sized bedrooms and situated at the top of a quiet road, close to the primary school and boasting some lovely hill and woodland views. The property is within easy reach of the village's facilities, which include a public house, petrol station with shop plus a Coop convenience store. There is also the Trailway with the old railway station and cafe plus a large seven acre recreation ground. The property has been a very much loved and enjoyed home to our seller for the last twelve years. During this time it has been well maintained and improved with some new uPVC double glazed windows, facias and patio doors, additional storage cupboards added in the kitchen plus new work surfaces, a new gas fired central heating boiler has been installed, shutters to some windows have been fitted and an en-suite created to the main bedrooms. Outside, the garden has been well cared for and the garage roof has been replaced. This lovely home offers comfortable and deceptively roomy accommodation that must be viewed to really appreciate how it would lend itself to many potential buyers needs. An early viewing is highly recommended to avoid missing out on the chance to be the next lucky owner.
