Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
Enjoying elevated views from the rear, across the town centre to the harbour, Carrick Roads and The Roseland Peninsula, an attractively refurbished and well proportioned 3 (possibly 4) bedroom terraced home, full of character and original features, including timber joinery, floorboards and fireplaces, with the added benefit of low maintenance front and rear gardens leading to parking to the rear.

THE PROPERTY

Having been vastly updated by the current owners, including tasteful redecoration, restoration of many original features, installation of a wood-burner, refitting of the kitchen, installation of a new roof, re-laying both garden areas and general upgrades throughout, this delightful home feels bright, spacious and well equipped. In addition, a large basement provides extensive storage for sports equipment, garden furniture and a useful utility area with plumbing for white goods . Unusually for a property this close to the town centre, a parking space is located beyond the rear garden leading from a rear lane.

The relatively traditional layout briefly comprises an entrance porch, hallway, deep opened-up living and dining rooms, kitchen/breakfast room, three first floor bedrooms with large bath/shower room at mid level, second floor loft area which is partly converted into a room and, with the installation of a fixed staircase, could provide a superb master bedroom with space/potential for an en-suite, subject to consents.
