INTRODUCTION Deceptive from the front, this traditional terraced house is much more than expected. The accommodation is over three floors offering four bedrooms in total along with a good sized lounge, characterful kitchen and lovely conservatory opening onto the garden. Character features have been retained where possible and combined with modern gas central heating and double glazing. The rear garden is a true delight, offering privacy and there is a range of workshops/outhouses which are a real bonus. Appealing to family or first time buyers as well as those looking to downsize closer to facilities.
