Full description

Tenure: Freehold

OPEN HOUSE! SATURDAY 19TH AUGUST between 2.00pm - 4.00pm BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. THE OPEN HOUSE VIEWINGS ARE NOW FULLY ALLOCATED. This imposing four bedroom detached family home, thought to be Edwardian, is available for the first time in over 50 years and retains many fine period features. It is located in a prime residential Avenue on the favoured west side of the City centre within minutes' walking distance of the Station and having a superb west facing garden about 125ft in depth and backing on to Admirals Park. It really must be viewed to fully appreciate all that it has to offer and its potential.

This fine example of a character family home is situated on the fringe of the City centre on the favoured west side, and could well suit a commuting buyer due to its proximity to the Station. It offers tremendous potential for a buyer to improve, adapt and possibly extend (subject to the usual consents) to their own tastes and requirements. The house has many period features including tall skirtings, high ceilings, panelled doors with period door furniture, fireplaces and sash windows. The accommodation itself is adaptable depending upon requirements having an impressive entrance hall, cloakroom, three good size reception rooms, small kitchen and boiler room, and on the first floor four bedrooms, bathroom and separate w.c. It is our opinion that a buyer will certainly alter the ground floor accommodation, if not extend (subject to the necessary consents), to create or provide a larger kitchen and perhaps consider extending into the loft. Undoubtedly a feature of the property is the truly delightful and well established westerly facing garden which measures approximately 125ft in length by about 45ft in width and has an open aspect behind as it backs onto Admirals Park. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
