BRIEF DESCRIPTION Being an ideal first time buyer or buy-to-let property, the huge benefit of this property is that, being on the end of a row of terraces, it has double gated access into the rear garden of the property, where there is a block paved seating terrace which could act as a private parking area which leads to a GARAGE. The property has been tenanted in recent years but is brought to market repainted throughout and has been refurbished in the last three months, and offers some original features, namely dado rails, picture rails and period tiled flooring to the entrance hall. The accommodation comprises: Entrance porch through a stained glass leaded light door to entrance hall, with period tiled flooring and a staircase off providing access to the first floor accommodation; open plan living/dining room with an attractive cast iron decorative tiled fireplace; step down to the breakfast kitchen which features a range of light wood effect units with brass fitments, roll top work surfaces with breakfast bar, a Belfast style sink and solid wood drainer and access to the rear garden; separate utility room which features plumbing for a washing machine and a wall mounted gas combination boiler. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a downstairs cloakroom/WC. On the first floor, there are two true double bedrooms, the master being to the front of the property and of a most excellent size, with both of these bedrooms featuring engineered oak flooring. The bathroom benefits from a recently installed three piece suite and features an exposed valve mixer shower unit with dual dispenser over the bath. Completing the living accommodation is a box room/study which offers flexibility of use as it could be a small child's bedroom/nursery or a home study area. In total the property offers 2/3 bedrooms and features a combination of glazing and gas central heating. Externally, to the rear there is a paved pathway from the property itself leading to a painted timber decked terrace with an accompanying block paved patio, which could easily double up as a driveway, and a pebbled area with a brick built barbeque. There is pedestrian and double gated access from the side communal alley into the rear of the property.

The area has recently undergone much regeneration and improvement and the popular Telford's Warehouse is approximately 5 minutes walk away.
