An excellent opportunity to acquire a detached property which is in need of total refurbishment, situated in a sought-after cul-de-sac position. The property does benefit from Upvc double glazed windows and doors throughout which we understand were installed in recent times and there are generous mature gardens that require landscaping. Some of the works required include re-wiring, a new heating system, new kitchen, bathroom and redecoration throughout. In brief the accommodation includes: Entrance Hall, Sitting Room, Kitchen/Diner, 3 Bedrooms, Bathroom and separate W.C. The property is approached by an asphalt driveway providing off street parking for 3 vehicles which in turn leads to the single garage and there are generous mature gardens to both the front and rear. The property is offered for sale with no forward chain and in our opinion should be viewed at an early opportunity as we anticipate strong interest from the outset. Viewing is strictly by appointment through Farrons Estate Agents: 01934 842000.
