THE IMPRESSIVE SIZE of this MOST APPEALING, LARGER STYLE SEMI-DETACHED RESIDENCE is impossible to assess from the outside and the MAGNIFICENT REAR GARDEN OF EXCEPTIONAL SIZE would be a GARDENING ENTHUSIAST'S DREAM and is very rarely found with a property in this price region, within this sought after residential location. This FAMILY HOME, which, offers GENEROUS, WELL PROPORTIONED ACCOMMODATION including FOUR FITTED BEDROOMS, also has an EXTENDED, ELEGANT, WELL-LIT DRAWING ROOM which is a "through" room with windows to the front and rear providing very good natural light and different aspects/outlook and the separate or connecting living-dining room, when combined with the drawing room, forms EXCELLENT RECEPTION SPACE ideal for entertaining, particularly for parties and larger family gatherings. The GENEROUS WINDOW SPACE affords very good natural light and the majority of the rooms also benefit from the southerly-facing aspect to the front, providing some natural warmth and there is also the advantage of NO OTHER PROPERTIES' WINDOWS IMMEDIATELY DIRECTLY FACING THE FRONT ELEVATION. The property, which, is ONE OF ONLY A PAIR OF THIS STYLE and therefore with a degree of individuality, has BEEN IN THE SAME FAMILY OWNERSHIP FOR ALMOST FIFTY YEARS and now has scope for a degree of modernisation and some improvements and should respond well. Situated in a very pleasant and extremely convenient position, with grass verges and some trees along the road, enhancing the appeal of the location, the property, as previously mentioned, has A BEAUTIFUL REAR GARDEN OF EXCEPTIONAL SIZE which should certainly appeal to gardening enthusiasts and families alike and has to be seen to be appreciated!
