Normie are delighted to present this three-bedroom semi-detached house in need of some updating. The vendor advises, that the house benefits from a south facing position from the front and is a spacious three bedroom original 1930’s semi detached property. The front garden and driveway are partially paved and have mature planting including substantial hedgerow. The garden could be transformed into a summer sun trap or to extend the existing driveway to support multiple vehicles much like some of the neighbouring properties. The glazed entrance vestibule houses the electric meter which is the only power source to the property, there is no mains gas to the property at all. Upon entering the property there is a wall mounted electric storage heater, open stairs leading to the first floor and a large hallway space leading to the downstairs rooms. From the entrance hallway you firstly have access to a spacious lounge with feature bay window and what we believe to be a closed/sealed chimney. It has been used for display but with the correct checks this beautiful space could be reopened for a log burner or equivalent to be sited here. The second equally as spacious reception/dining room has a feature fireplace surround which houses a fully working solid fuel fireplace and also the back boiler for the property. There is also a second large feature bay window overlooking the rear garden.
An extended kitchen with not one but two windows, one to the driveway and one to the rear garden side aspect, providing a very light and airy space. In situ are a host of existing wall and base units, including working sink, but with space for further appliances already available. In need of a modern touch. Spaces for white goods to be moved in make the kitchen functional however the long space would benefit greatly from a modern kitchen being installed.
Side door access to the rear garden and continuation of the driveway to a purpose built garage/out building set far back from the road. There is power going to the structure and has been used as a workshop for a number of years. Plenty of space for planting or even following some of the neighbouring properties and consider a side extension. The opportunities are endless. There is a small shed structure where the kitchen ends and also a wooden coal store. The rear garden is a very mature space and currently houses two ample sized nature ponds. There is extensive planting behind the workshop and the garden includes several well established fruit trees (apple, plum and pear) along with several varieties of berry and would make a great kitchen garden for those wanting to explore a property with a hint of self sufficiency. There is a good size lawn which is easily maintainable and a paved seating area in front of the rear reception window. An opportunity to open out this space and bring the outside in could be in the shape of swapping the window for large opening doors, or there is even an opportunity to extend the rear reception room in line with the extended kitchen and neighbouring property to give you and extended kitchen diner at the back. The possibilities really are endless.
Back inside the property and you have ample under stairs storage behind a door off the hallway, which could easily be used as a pantry, general storage or even the possibility of being converted into a downstairs toilet. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms; two substantially sized doubles mirroring the downstairs reception rooms and a further single all offering plenty of space for bedroom furniture. The front master bedroom benefits from the beautiful feature bay window and overlooks the front garden. The second double to the rear has a large window looking out to the rear garden and is also supported with a wall mounted electric heater. The single bedroom is of a good size and has a window overlooking the front garden/driveway, is supported with a wall mounted electric heater and presently has plenty of space for storage, but would make a good sized single bedroom.
Finally we have the main property bathroom with separate WC that could both benefit from modernisation. The dark green suite in situ at present is functional however there is ample storage space in the bathroom by means of an airing cupboard. Outside of the bathroom and toilet doors there is a small access door to a good size loft area which has been boarded by the owners and used for storage.
All in all this property needs bringing into the twentieth century however the foundations are there with good sized rooms and a good outside space and lots of possibilities.
