This very attractive detached house now comes to the market with great possibility for extension, subject to planning. Currently there are three double bedrooms, a large family bathroom which is fully tiled with a four piece suite and separate shower. There are two reception areas with an open fireplace to the sitting room and French doors to the garden. In addition, there is also a downstairs cloakroom, a fitted kitchen with space for all the usual appliances and a Range style oven, which connects to a separate breakfast area with a view over the garden. The property is heated by gas central heating and has leaded windows throughout, some of which have been replaced in a heritage style leaded double glazed unit. Other noteworthy features include a lovely sized master bedroom with a range of fitted wardrobes and windows to the front rear and side. The second bedroom is also a very large double with exposed floorboards, eaves space, a dormer window to the side and a leaded window to the front.

To summarise, this is a light and characterful, solidly built family home, in one of the areas best locations for schooling and access to the town. The property would benefit from some cosmetic attention at this stage, but represents an incredible opportunity for enlargement subject to planning.
