Overall Description

This is a substantial semi-detached Edwardian house which retains many of its original period features - high ceilings, open fireplaces, original plasterwork, dado and picture rails - but is in need of complete renovation and also has scope for further extension to the rear and/or the loft to create a large and impressive family home. There is also potential to subdivide the property into two garden apartments as others have in the area (all subject to the usual consents of course). The property has four bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs (we believe the fourth was created with a previous extension to the rear), while downstairs there are three receptions, all with period fireplaces, a kitchen, conservatory, downstairs cloakroom and good-sized entrance hall. The property does have gas central-heating although the sash windows will need restoring and the wiring will no doubt need an upgrade. There is a driveway to the front with two off-street parking spaces and a large mature back-garden that is a more than a little overgrown in places but could be delightful. If you are looking for a "project" to make your own then this character property is not to be missed.
