Full description

Tucked away from view yet just a short stroll from the city centre this charming semi-detached Victorian home just oozes character and period features from tip to toe! There is a reception hall with original minton tiled floor, living room with bay window and open fire, separate sitting room, kitchen with family dining area and pot-belly stove, cellar, three double bedrooms with antique pine floorboards, two bathrooms and a linked fourth bedroom (ideal for guests, sleep overs or a study).

What The Seller Loves: - "The garden is ideal for children to play in and it's secluded and safe. The kitchen size means it is great for entertaining, we really enjoy preparing food whilst chatting to friends."

What We've Noticed: - This would be a great home for those with older children. All of the cities amenities and facilities are on hand meaning as parents you spend less time running Mum and Dad's taxi.

The garden is reasonably private and nicely secluded by mature trees and bushes.
