This four bedroom, semi detached period property has been extended and renovated in a sympathetic and aesthetically pleasing manner.

The property has been lovingly refurbished to benefit from 'all mod cons', such as uPVC double glazing, gas fired central heating, a stylish shaker style kitchen with built in appliances and a contemporary family bathroom. Whilst still retaining many of its period features such as 'Parquet' flooring, deep stone window sills, exposed stone walls, ceiling and structural beams and timber lintel.
