In addition to the two bedrooms, the accommodation which is arranged over two floors comprises a living room, kitchen and bathroom.
Windows are double glazed and heating is provided by electric storage / panel heaters.
The property requires refurbishment and updating which is reflected in the price but nonetheless offers an affordable starter home in this convenient location.

The living room has two windows to the front of the house looking over the garden. Heating is provided by a storage heater. A further pine door at the rear opens to the kitchen with windows to the side and rear, and door to a rear lobby with built-in cupboard housing the hot water tank and door to the back garden. The kitchen has fitted units including a sink and plumbing for a dishwasher although replacement units would be desirable. A cupboard under the stairs provides additional storage. The freestanding appliances will remain although no warranties will be given. Storage meter.
The carpeted stair which is lit by a window at the top, leads up to a small landing with doors to two double bedrooms and the bathroom, and a hatch to the loft space. The bathroom has a three piece suite with electric over-bath shower. The larger bedroom (bedroom 1) to the left has a window enjoying the open aspect over to Gilbertson Park, and a large built-in cupboard over the stairs.

Interested parties are advised to note their interest through their solicitor as soon as possible so that they can be informed if a closing date is fixed.
