Full Details

This charming mid-terrace property boasts a delightful 1950s style and décor, complemented by a gorgeous garden. Traditional features, such as wood panel doors and picture rails, create stunning focal points throughout the home. The original hard flooring on the ground floor has been lacquered and polished by the current owner. Both the front and rear gardens are beautifully maintained, with two outbuildings, and a garage adding extra utility. Drawings are available that show the potential for a single-storey extension at the rear, significantly increasing the property's floor space. Perfect for a young family or as a first-time buying opportunity, the property also benefits from double glazing throughout.

Set well back from the road, a picket fence surrounds the front garden while a decorative iron gates and paved pathway invites you in.

At the centre of the room is the original 1950s fireplace with a tiled surround and hearth, a fabulous feature if one wanted to retain it. The dining room overlooks the lovely rear garden and has a central fireplace that has a more Art Deco feel, with a tiled hearth and mantel. There are also double-glazed doors that open out onto the paved terrace.

There is a sink unit with twin taps at the end, wall cupboards on the right, space for a freestanding cooker and a work surface with open-fronted storage below.
