BRIEF PROPERTY DESCRIPTION The property comprises a traditional two bedroom semi-detached house which has substantial UPVC double glazing and gas central heating with the presence of a relatively modern Worcester gas fired central heating boiler. Whilst internally the accommodation could benefit from some modernisation and updating it is fit for rental purposes. From the front garden, which is well tended there is access to the ground floor via a reception lobby which has staircase leading off to the first floor and a door giving access into a good sized lounge with bay window to front and door into an open plan dining kitchen with a useful under stairs void providing a pantry area.

Upon the first floor a landing area gives access to a large principal bedroom and separate good sized double bedroom. The family bathroom is of dated décor but is of a spacious arrangement and also provides an airing cupboard.

To the outside, the property enjoys a fabulous courtyard area which walks out onto beautifully well tended rear gardens which includes various flower beds and beyond an allotment area.

The property furthermore enjoys a two bay car parking space to the rear which has been established by the neighbouring residence over the past 30 odd years using a unregistered area of land and service road leading off Slater Road. During the time of residency this access has been uncontested and used for such principal.
