The property has been updated improved and maintained to a high standard and now provides a characterful, versatile, ambient, welcoming and comfortably appointed family home with the advantage of modern conveniences including; uPVC double glazing, gas fired central heating with upgraded system incorporating renewed radiators, replacement boiler and other areas such as the attractive hardwood herringbone pattern oak flooring undertaken a few years ago.

The house offers the scope to be sub-divided to create a self-contained annexe or flat with separate outside access from the rear, should this meet with a buyer's needs?
