Full Description THE PROPERTY This is fantastic development opportunity for someone with the vision to make this a sensational family home. The property is currently without off road parking with a path leading up to the front porch. There is also a shared access passage through the building between this home and next door, providing access to both gardens. The rear garden for this garden is very overgrown (hence the photo taken from the bedroom window) although it is a terrific size and therefore has bags more potential. The porch precedes the hallway, with a door missing in between, and has doors leading off to all three reception rooms. The first door to the left is the main lounge with bay window and feature chimney breast. The lounge has been stripped back and had has been re-plastered in places. There is also wood effect flooring. The sitting room is the second door to the left and is the best finished room in the house, with more wood effect flooring and bay window looking out to the rear.   The third reception room is the dining room which is a good sized space which originally would have been the kitchen, would it have not been for the extension to the rear which is now the kitchen. Galley style, the kitchen has wall and base units along the right and back side of the room. There is also an exit door to the left for the rear garden. Moving upstairs, the family bathroom has been split into two, with the idea of creating both a bathroom and shower room. The bathroom is more complete than the shower room however it is likely that the new owners will replace both. The landing area is fairly large and could work as a nice study area, if not for extra furniture. All three bedrooms are of a double size, with bedrooms one and two having fitted wardrobes and bay windows. NB - ROOM SIZES ARE SHOWN AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.
