The Property
A beautiful proportioned 1960s built detached house that offers everything a family home needs to be, it's both light and spacious and has great views, front and rear. The ground floor has a lounge running the depth of the home, with a very cosy snug that opens out into the garden. The kitchen is even bigger with a good range of fitted units and a large dining area that also opens out into the garden via French doors. Upstairs are three double bedrooms and a good sized single room. The master bedroom has a self contained en-suite, the house bathroom is also fairly new. The outside space is also very generous with good parking at the front and a single garage (that offers potential development). The rear garden offers great far reaching views and is of very good size too.
