Full Details

The Property
This period style maisonette is one of four built by highly regarded Cheltenham based Clifton Homes in 1989. The natural stone elevations are complemented by a slate covered roof, with wooden double glazed sash windows. The property was built to a high standard and has been well maintained. In recent years the shower room has been refitted and the kitchen units refreshed. It is presented in excellent order throughout. The central location with a garage, parking and outside sitting space make this a much sought after home. There are options for second-home ownership or buy-to-let, with the anticipated rental value in the region of £900-£950 per calendar month.

The Accommodation
The front door leads into a lobby with a rear external door for ease of accessing the garage and parking at the rear. The good sized sitting/dining room has a wood effect floor with a shelved storage cupboard off, which could provide a study alcove if required. The kitchen has an electric oven and hob with extractor over. The fridge and freezer are integrated and there is an under counter washer/drier. Off the inner hall is a linen cupboard with radiator, and a hanging cupboard. The larger bedroom has a built-in triple wardrobe and two windows to rear. The second bedroom would make an ideal home office. The shower room has a large shower enclosure, a vanity basin and extensive tiling.

To the front is a south-facing paved area enclosed by railings. From the rear there is a pathway to the back door with potential for storage.

Garage 5.05m by 2.44m (16'6" by 8'0")
Eaves storage, plus a parking space in front of the garage.
