OVERVIEW In a great location on the fringes of the town centre and having good transport links in and out of town, this deceptive semi detached house has excellent potential and will appeal to a variety of buyers. Previously run as a guest house with 6 letting rooms, the property is now a substantial family home. Additional living space and bedrooms have been created at the rear of the property within a three bedroom annexe - perfect as owners accommodation and there is an impressive family kitchen with double height ceiling and an island. Externally, there is parking and turning for five cars plus a garden area - a real bonus for a property of this style. Ideal for large families looking for a multi generational home, investors looking to create lettings units or buyers looking for a work/life balance change. Some updating is required to the main house, however traditional features have been retained where possible.
