Since its construction in the 1930s, this semi-detached house has remained in the possession of a single family. Situated in a desirable location on the corner of Bateson Road , the property boasts a spacious plot ripe for potential development, extension, or even the creation of a separate dwelling (subject to planning permission). While it requires updating, the house offers ample opportunity for customisation.

Upon entry, a welcoming entrance hall leads to the first floor via a staircase. The front of the house features a reception room adorned with a double-glazed bay window and a charming fireplace. Another reception room towards the rear offers a cosy space with a wall-mounted gas fire, understairs storage cupboard, and utility cupboard. A convenient ground-floor bathroom is equipped with a three-piece suite including a bath, WC, and washbasin. The rear lobby provides access to the kitchen, fitted with a coordinated range of base and eye-level units, along with gas and electrical cooker points and room for additional appliances. A single door leads to the rear garden, making outdoor activities easily accessible.

Upstairs, three bedrooms await, two of which are doubles. The main bedroom features fitted wardrobes for added storage convenience.

Outside, the front garden has been thoughtfully landscaped with shingles, enhancing the property's curb appeal. The generously sized side garden, also shingled and enclosed by a mature hedgerow, offers further outdoor space. Side access leads to the rear garden, a delightful sanctuary split into various zones including a patio, lawn, and flower beds, all enclosed by timber fencing.

A superb 1930s semi detached home in need of updating and with good sized plot providing an opportunity for development/extension and or separate dwelling (STP). No chain.
