Property Description

Full description

Enjoying a tucked away, quiet and private position at the end of a pedestrian path is this delightful semi detached mature family home offering well proportioned rooms and boasting a generously sized rear garden. We believe that the property was built in the 1920's and has been a family home to our sellers for the last nine years during which time it has been cherished and improved with solar panels providing free electricity to the property with any surplus going to the National Grid. The property also benefits from Upvc double glazing throughout and has electric economy 7 heating. Internally, the property offers comfortable accommodation with scope to put one's own mark on it. An early viewing is highly advisable to avoid missing out on this lovely home and to see how it would meet a great many potential buyer's requirements.

In brief, the ground floor accommodation consists of entrance hall leading to an inner hall with large storage cupboard, sitting room with lovely stone fireplace and burner, dining area and the kitchen with plenty of storage cupboards. In addition there is also the bathroom. On the first floor there is a split level galleried landing and three good sized bedrooms, two of which are of a double size. Outside there is a front garden and good sized rear garden with separate vegetable patch. There is on-road parking and the bays are free for all to use except the one specifically marked.
