Overall Description

This substantial semi-detached house has been extended to the rear, and has plenty of scope for further expansion either with a loft conversion (as others have in the area) or by further extension to the side into the garage (subject to the usual consents). The property has double-glazed windows and gas central-heating, but would benefit from internal modernisation (kitchen, bathroom, floorings and redecoration). However, it does offer buyers the opportunity to create a large modern family home to suit their individual needs and taste in a really good location for schools, transport links and other amenities. The house has a large back garden with a south-westerly aspect as well as a good-sized garage to the side and private driveway with off-street parking (and potential to create more should you so wish). The property is being sold by Informal Tender with a Guide Price Range of £390,000 to £400,000 and a deadline for "Best and Final" offers of 12 noon on Wednesday 9th August.
