Guide price £500,000 to £575,000


This is a 1930’s style terraced house with a rear entrance garage, in an area sought after due to highly acclaimed schools. The house requires updating which is reflected in the attractive guide price.

The property offers potential to build a rear extension or into the loft space subject to any permissions required (although buyers should research permitted development rights as they may be able to build an extension without the need for planning consent).

Many houses along the road have already been extended into the loft and to the rear. Loft extensions normally allow for a double bedroom and an en-suite or two bedrooms allowing the foot print of the house to be increased significantly.

The house offers over 1000 sq ft of living space with two reception rooms providing flexibility of the living space. As an example, some buyers might use one of the reception rooms as a fourth bedroom which is especially appealing to anyone who is considering the future rental potential of the house.

There are some period features such as fireplaces, round bay windows, high ceilings, dado rails to name a few.

There is much more to this property that can only be appreciated upon viewing, however the images do a fantastic job of showing you what’s on offer. Please also see our 360-degree images to give you more insight into what the property offers.
