Description
This is a very attractive mature semi-detached property which has been thoughtfully renovated and upgraded, without any loss of the period character which makes this era of property ever popular. It occupies a level position with an extra-wide frontage creating excellent double width driveway parking, a landscaped garden and an additional area which is cultivated as a kitchen garden. It offers two separate reception rooms, with connecting doors which open to create a "through" room when entertaining. A smart modern kitchen is now partly open-plan to the dining room. There is also a separate laundry/utility room and internal access into the attached garage. The property offers 3 bedrooms [two doubles and a single]. Both double rooms have fitted furniture. The bedrooms are served by a new 4 piece bathroom in white offering both a bath and a separate shower cubicle. Gas central heating is installed and the property is fully double glazed in PVCu framework. The rear garden is in full sun throughout the afternoon and into the evening.
