Property Description

Full description

To be sold for the first time in over 60 years! An attractive 1930s semi-detached house, with some character features and delightful 105ft south west facing gardens. Now being offered for sale with no onward chain and in need of some modernisation. In an established setting on the borders of Reading and Tilehurst. 3 bedrooms, bathroom, 2 reception rooms, kitchen, downstairs cloakroom, driveway, gas radiator central heating. EER: D65

DESCRIPTION/LOCATION:  A two storey semi-detached house, originally constructed in the 1930s, with a later addition on the ground floor. The current owner lived in the property for about sixty four years and carried out updates during that time, but the property would now benefit from a programme of modernisation. It has therefore been priced accordingly. The well-proportioned accommodation is complemented by particularly nice gardens which have clearly been well tended over the years, but do now require some attention.

This is a good quality family house in a desirable setting, suitable either for owner occupation or for investment purposes.
