"Uniquely Offered For The First Time Since Construction In The 1930s...!

And Occupying A Sizeable Corner Plot Setting…

A 3 Bedroom Semi Detached House With Considerable Potential & Requiring Updating!"

This "Looked After" family house has been within the same family since the original construction in the late 1930s period. Well maintained over the years, the property now represents an ideal project for modernisation and potential enlargement, which the plot certainly affords (subject to necessary planning consents). Upon interior inspection reveals a traditional layout which includes a reception hall, bay fronted sitting room, separate living/dining room, kitchen, and across the back a lean-to style conservatory. The first floor is "light and airy" and includes off the landing 3 decent size bedrooms, bathroom and separate wc. The property enjoys frontages to both Galeborough and Monserrat Avenue, with access to a garage of the former. Within walking distance is Highams Park Centre, the popular Oak Hill Primary School and a mainline station serving Liverpool St (just 20 minutes or so). This property is being sold with no forward chain and is exclusive to McRae's Property Services.
