Description
The property requires modernisation, providing the new owner with an excellent opportunity to add their own stamp. The house is elevated from the roadside and approached via steps, which lead to the top of the raised front garden. From here a front door accessed the hallway, which has two storage cupboards, stairs rising to the first floor and doors leading to the living room and the kitchen.

There is a through lounge, which runs from the front to the back of the property and has dual aspect windows and fireplace featuring an electric fire.

The kitchen is a fair size and has wall and base units with work surfaces incorporating an inset stainless-steel sink and drainer. There is also space for a cooker and various other appliances, a wall-mounted Worcester boiler, a window to the rear aspect and a door leading to the garden.

The first-floor accommodation is accessed via a landing, which has a loft hatch to the roof space.

Bedroom one is a double room, with a window to the rear aspect and a built-in wardrobe/storage.

The second bedroom is also a double room and has window overlooking the rear garden.

There is also a third, which is a good-sized single room with a window to front aspect and useful storage recess.

The bathroom requires updating and currently comprises a pedestal washbasin, a low-level WC and a panelled bath with a shower over. There is also a frosted window to the front aspect.


Outside
The property benefits from a substantial mature rear garden, which is tiered and enjoys a very private wooded backdrop. The upper sections are mainly laid to lawn and bordered by mature trees.
