ACCOMMODATION An internal appraisal of this much improved family home is a must in order that the outstanding level of presentation can be fully appreciated, along with the huge potential that this large plot offers. Available with no onward chain.

The spacious living area briefly comprises; entrance hall, lounge with bay window to the front and bi-folding doors leading through to a most impressive dining kitchen with range of modern base and wall mounted units and integrated appliances. A rear entrance lobby gives access to the ground floor WC, shower room/utility room and guest bedroom. This area in particular could ideally be used for teenage or older relatives alike.

To the first floor are three bedrooms and the bathroom which has also been re-fitted with a contemporary style suite.

The house has a gas fired central heating system, uPVC double glazing to window units and external doors and stands on a larger plot with gardens to the front and rear along with a stone chipped driveway which provides off road parking for a number of vehicles and extends from the front to the side and rear. In our opinion, this plot presents an opportunity to be developed subject to the required planning and building regulation approval.

St John's is renowned for the wide variety of quality residential property within the immediate area along with convenient access to an extensive range of amenities including the highly regarded Queen Elizabeth Grammar School and Wakefield Girls High School which are within walking distance.

The property benefits from a planning history for redevelopment which was approved (now expired) offering good confidence for future planning applications.
