This DETACHED CHARACTER HOUSE, available for the first time in about 40 years, is understood to have been built around the early 1900's and has latter extensions and a loft conversion and sits to the front of a generous WEDGE SHAPED PLOT with a Southerly facing garden irregular in shape but approaching 80ft in depth by about 70ft in width. It offers excellent potential to improve and possibly further extend, subject to the usual consents. The property backs on to the grounds of St Marys Church and at the rear there is a service road giving access to garages to some of the other properties in the road.

As also previously mentioned at the rear of the garden is a rear access road beyond which are the grounds of St Marys Church.

NOTE

We understand that the extensions and loft conversion were carried out a long time ago prior to the current seller purchasing the property hence there are no current building regulations for these works. If a buyer is looking to now alter the property to their own requirements these would need the new necessary consents and regulations. The property does require updating and hence a buyer needs to take this into account before entering into making an offer to purchase.

Due to the potential for possible redevelopment with this property the current sellers will want to include an overage in the contract so that if the property is developed by way of additional dwelling/s being built, within a specified period of time set by their solicitors, they will be entitled to a percentage of that profit.
