*** NO CHAIN *** Charming two/three bedroom semi-detached cottage with potential for a DRIVEWAY to the rear located close to the noted conservation area, Allestree Park and golf course. Character features. Located in Allestree old village. EPC Rating D.

General Information -

An opportunity to acquire a charming semi-detached cottage of style and character situated in a convenient and most sought after residential area, close to the noted conservation area and delightful Allestree Park, with its golf course and fishing lake.

We believe the property was built in the 1800's and is constructed of brick with a rendered finish beneath a pitched tiled roof with the front elevation having an attractive double fronted appearance revealed by matching sealed unit double glazed windows.

The property is set back from the pavement edge on the corner of Robincroft Road and Cornhill.

An internal inspection will reveal well maintained gas central heating living accommodation and in brief comprises, lounge, dining room, kitchen, first floor landing, three bedrooms and bathroom.

To the rear of the property is a pleasant enclosed garden.

Please Note - There is on-street car parking, however, there is excellent potential for a driveway to the rear of the property (subject to planning permission). In our opinion, a driveway will increase the value of the property and its saleability.

Location -

The location is known as Allestree old village, which is a popular residential area situated approximately four miles from the City centre and provides an excellent range of local amenities including the noted Park Farm shopping centre, excellent schools at all levels and regular bus services.
