With regards to viewing properties, please bear in mind that there will be strict controls in how we do this. Viewings can only be carried out where there are no vulnerable occupants in a property and where no viewers (or agent) are showing any symptoms. More than one person (but only from the same household and no children) will be allowed inside the property and viewers will need to bring their own mask and gloves and be asked not to touch anything during the viewing. Social distancing will have to be observed as much as possible. Please only view if you are sure the house might be 'the one' for you. Thank you for your understanding!
Spacious family house or investment/redevelopment opportunity!
Internally, a very appealing and surprisingly large house with a garden and planning permission to convert an outbuilding situated right in the centre of the town. The property has great potential (subject to further permission) to split into two flats, providing a re-development opportunity for letting or re-sale. On the other hand, with five double bedrooms on the first floor, the current accommodation could suit a large family. On the ground floor, there is a pretty lounge with multi-fuel stove and window seat, leading to a dining room and on to the kitchen which overlooks the garden. There is a ground floor w.c. off the hallway and stairs rising to the first floor where there are five double bedrooms and a bathroom. Outside, at the back of the house is an enclosed, private garden with rear access to a side road. The outhouse in the garden is currently being used as a summer house/studio and utility room, with plumbing for the washing machine. Planning permission has been granted to convert this to ancillary accommodation. This property has a great deal to offer, whether as an investment or permanent home.
