Full description

Renovation project
In a prime and highly convenient setting opposite the Gatekeeper's Cottage in Kimberley Park, a few minutes walk from the town centre and harbourside, a well proportioned semi-detached Victorian residence, requiring renovation (work has already commenced), but still providing characterful, authentic and charming 4-bedroomed accommodation with loft area, with good sized, well enclosed gardens.

The Property - In this prime and highly convenient setting, opposite the Gatekeeper's Cottage at the entrance to Kimberley Park and within a few minutes walk of the town centre and harbourside, a well proportioned, semi-detached Victorian residence that requires work.

The current vendors have commenced with a programme of works that include a new central heating boiler, strengthening of the joists within the kitchen ceiling, removal of old kitchen, pipe work and battens for a downstairs shower room, etc; full details can be made available during a viewing, at which point prospective purchasers will see the full potential this opportunity offers.

The accommodation is well proportioned throughout and retains many period features and, at present, provides those prospective purchasers with a great opportunity to create a modern home of their own style; the property requires bathroom suites and a kitchen. The accommodation includes a through reception room, easily sub-divided to make two rooms again if required, both with stripped timber flooring, period fireplaces, sash windows with shutters; the kitchen/breakfast room (sink but no units or appliances in situ), partition and pipes for downstairs shower room, first floor split-level landing, four bedrooms (one requiring floor, ceiling and walls to be boarded), bathroom, decommissioned WC and loft room.

Outside, the gardens are well enclosed and of a good size, especially for a town house in this location.

An unusual opportunity to purchase a home that requires work in this prime location and, as the vendors' Sole Agent, we strongly recommend an early viewing appointment is made.
