Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An appealing, deceptively spacious Victorian MID TERRACED TOWN HOUSE in need of general updating and redecoration but with excellent potential to create a lovely home. The property which is of traditional brick construction with painted elevations under a tiled roof has the benefit of a single storey rear extension. Situated in a popular residential area on the favoured North side of the town, the property is within easy walking distance of Ipswich town centre with its wide range of cultural, business and leisure facilities.

The house has the benefit of 2 reception rooms with a kitchen, utility area and bathroom on the Ground Floor and 3 good sized bedrooms on the First Floor. To the rear is a Garage and Workshop/Store with access off Gymnasium Street. There are also UPVC double glazed replacement windows virtually throughout and gas fired central heating. The property enjoys a certain amount of character with high ceilings and a good sized landing with the potential to create en-suite facilities on the First Floor.

The property is conveniently located close to local shops and there is easy access to Christchurch Park, St Matthews C of E Junior School and Ipswich School whilst Northgate High School, a favoured catchment high school is only 5 minutes by car. Ipswich mainline railway station with its regular inter-city service to London's Liverpool Street Station (approx. 70 minutes) is only 20 minutes walk away.
