I always feel the weight of responsibility when we sell a house that has been in the family for so long.  It really can be very emotional for the sellers (unsurprisingly).  This great little house will need someone very special then to bring it up to date.  I love the layout of the houses on this side of the road, especially the wide landing with its large window which looks like it is crying out for a desk or sumptuous chaise longue! Most exciting though is the garage found behind the house.  It’s so rare to find potential off road parking in this area (although you would almost certainly need to apply to have the kerb dropped despite having been used for many decades!).  This is likely to sell really quickly so don’t delay, especially given its popular position accessible to the town centre.

Full description

This appealing end of terrace period home requires modernisation to bring it up to its full potential after being in the same family for over 90 years. The house has UPVC double glazing and gas central heating and has the popular layout of a spacious hallway and landing. There are two good sized reception rooms downstairs as well as a compact kitchen and two double bedrooms serviced by a bathroom on the first floor. To the rear of the house lies a small enclosed garden with an attached store and outside W.C. Rarely seen and most desirable is the garage to the rear (subject to the installation of a dropped kerb). This requires some renovating/replacement but gives the potential to create off road parking. Offered with no onwards chain, we have promised the family we'll find the much-loved home a fabulous new owner. Could that be you?
