Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A rare opportunity to purchase a property that requires complete modernisation/refurbishment and that is considered to offer further extension/ enlargement potential as has been the case with several similar neighbouring properties (subject to obtaining the necessary consents).

Presently a two double bedroom, two reception room semi-detached chalet bungalow, accommodation is arranged over two floors with the property having been extended into the loft at some time in the distant past.

Offered for sale with the benefit of vacant possession and no onward chain the property has been cleared of chattels so this really is sold as seen! A small porch leads into the hall, where access is gained to all ground floor rooms, to the front a reasonable sized 16'5 x 11' sitting room with gas fire (NOT TESTED), a separate dining room with patio doors out to the rear garden and a staircase leading up from here to the first floor bedroom. The kitchen in need of modernising is basically fitted and includes a utility recess, the bathroom has a sage coloured suite and is also in need of replacement. There is a ground floor double bedroom with an outlook to the rear over the garden. On the first floor, another double bedroom with eaves storage cupboards and a pleasant view across roof tops to the South Downs National Park in the distance.

Outside, a small front garden which in many of these properties has been turned into off street parking (STANC), a shared driveway leads to the rear garden measuring 65' in depth by 30' in width and due to its size is considered to offer further enlargement potential to the property without leaving a postage stamp garden. There are some replacement double windows and a gas fired central heating system however this has not been tested by the agents and should be considered not to be in working order when planning ones budget for the refurbishment costs.
