If you're looking for period charm and a freehold house close to transport links into town, then this 2-double bedroom (plus a study/child's room) house might just be the one for you. No chain.
The house has real kerb appeal with its brick frontage and beautiful sash windows. There are 4 period fireplaces dotted throughout the property and stripped wooden floorboards downstairs. The front room has a large bay window that allows natural light to stream in. The dining room makes for an ideal place for entertaining with the kitchen directly off it. Both reception rooms have bespoke alcove cupboards and shelving. The kitchen itself is bright and modern with a niche for a free-standing fridge freezer. The bathroom at the back boasts a simple white suite with a wall-mounted shower. Heading upstairs, the master bedroom extends across the full width of the property.

There's a central lawn flanked by mature trees and shrubbery providing green surroundings and privacy.
