Full description

This three bedroom semi-detached property is offered for sale with no upward chain and represents a fantastic opportunity for anyone wishing to put their own mark on a place. Although in need of some refurbishment and modernisation the property's rooms are well proportioned and the plot offers scope for extension subject to local planning permission. The property is further enhanced through UPVC double glazed windows, gas fired central heating via a combination boiler, off-road parking, car port and garage.

The property briefly comprises of an entrance porch and on into a good size entrance hall. The entrance hall has a cloakroom cupboard off of it in addition to a useful under stairs storage cupboard. There are stairs rising to the first floor and doors through to the kitchen and lounge/diner. The lounge/diner does have a set of double doors allowing the two spaces to be separated, or left open to form one sizable reception room. The living room section has a gas fire mounted onto a feature fireplace with raised hearth and a window to the front aspect. The dining room offers space for a table and chairs with a window to the rear elevation. The kitchen has a range of base and wall mounted units with granite effect roll-edge work surfaces. There is space for all essential appliances to include a cooker, fridge/freezer, and plumbing for a washing machine. There is a pantry storage cupboard and a door that leads out to the car port at the side of the property. The kitchen could be extended or knocked through to the dining room to potentially make a spacious kitchen/diner.

To the first floor there are two double bedrooms both of which have some form of fitted wardrobe/cupboard space. The larger of the two double rooms also houses the airing cupboard. The third bedroom is a single but does offer options to become a dressing area, home office or hobby room if not required as a bedroom space. Finally on the first floor is the bathroom which comprises a three piece white suite to include a paneled bath with mains shower over, low level WC and pedestal wash hand basin.

To the front of the property there is a paved driveway that provides off-road parking for one vehicle as well as direct car access through timber doors to the car port which provides further parking and storage solutions. Beyond the car port there is a garage/workshop which has light and power. To the rear is an enclosed garden, mainly laid to lawn with a paved patio seating area.

Internal viewing is highly recommended to truly appreciate the scope and potential this property has to offer.
