A rare opportunity to acquire a pretty two bedroom semi-detached house with great potential to refurbish and extend to create a charming family home within walking distance of the town centre, station and popular schools. This highly desirable property built in the 1930’s has a wealth of original features and has a pretty mature garden. Ample space to the front of the property could provide the opportunity to create off-street parking (all changes would be subject to the usual planning permission).
TO THE GROUND FLOOR:
The property has a part-glazed front door leading to a useful porch with tiled floor and space for coats and shoes.
The entrance hall has doors to the sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room and bathroom, and staircase to the first floor.
The sitting room is double aspect with a gas coal effect fire featuring a wooden surround and TV point.
The kitchen to the rear is also double aspect and features wood effect base and wall units, laminate worktop, part-tiled walls and vinyl flooring. There is a Siemens ceramic hob, electric oven and integrated washing machine, a stainless steel single drainer sink and a meter cupboard also housing the fuse board. There is space for a table and chairs and a door to a traditional style pantry with a window to the garden. A part glazed door leads to the side of the property for access to the rear garden.
The downstairs bathroom has a white suite and electric shower over the bath, with an obscured glazed window to the side.
TO THE FIRST FLOOR:
The carpeted staircase has a window to the front of the property creating a bright open feel. The landing has a large built-in storage cupboard and doors leading to the two double bedrooms.
Bedroom one is double aspect and features a pretty cast-iron fireplace.
Bedroom two has a window to the side and a built-in wardrobe. There is also access to the boiler, airing cupboard housing the hot water cylinder and access to the loft via a hatch.
The generous front garden is mainly laid to lawn with a path to the front door, mature shrubs, a wooden fence to one side and mixed hedging affording privacy.
The rear garden is filled with a variety of mature shrubs and trees and has the added advantage of a large store that is attached to the kitchen.
