4 bedroom House - Semi-Detached (Sold (STC))
DEVELOPMENT PROJECT: A twice extended 1950’s semi-detached family house with driveway, garage and good-sized garden that has potential for modernisation and further improvement. GUIDE PRICE: £500-£525,000. (Property Ref: BYSOUTH)
This 1950's semi-detached house has been extended twice, once to the side to add two more bedrooms above the garage, and again to the rear to make a larger kitchen/breakfast room. The end result is a large and flexible family home that, while it is in need of internal modernisation, does offer buyers the potential for further improvement, such as by converting the garage and workshop into additional living space or putting a bigger extension across the rear (subject to the usual consent). The current first floor layout has four/five bedrooms, a shower room and a cloakroom and while you do need to walk through bedroom two to reach the third and fourth bedrooms, a corridor could be added to resolve this. Downstairs there is a porch, entrance hall, shower room, duel aspect sitting/dining room and large kitchen/breakfast room. There is a good sized back garden with greenhouse to the rear and a low maintenance front garden with private driveway leading to the garage and workshop. Guide Price of £500,000 to £525,000. Open House: 10am to 12 noon Sat 3rd Dec. Informal Tender with "Best & Final" bids by 12 noon on Wed the 7th Dec. No chain.
