Property Description

Built in the 1930s this red sandstone fronted Detached House is the model type noted for its generous footprint and particularly for its large, wood panelled (painted), reception hall which really does make for a wonderful first impression.

Set upon a level plot the garden is very nicely landscaped, the rear garden south facing to capture the day's sun. The subjects are in fine order, as our imagery will show, and boast an impressive specification with quality replacement double glazed windows (uPVC framed), modern fitments to the kitchen, bathroom and shower room, and a gas central heating system where the boiler has been renewed. Within the inglenook of the lounge is a handsome modern limestone fireplace with a glass fronted, remote controlled, gas fire by Gazco, a delightful cosy luxury for autumn/winter evenings.

It is a home that will appeal to both families and couples, its six main apartments can be used as three or four bedrooms as required. Much of the character of the original house is retained, enhanced by all the benefits the modern fitments and spec affords.
