Believed to have been built by Messrs T.A. King in the mid-50s, it has a host of retained original features, including oak panelling.

Enhancing the property further is a lovely east-facing rear garden with a side driveway leading to a double garage.

The front garden is as attractive as the rear, with a gated stepping path leading through lawns to the oak-studded front door.

The property would benefit from updating as is, or could provide an ideal opportunity to remodel and extend, subject to planning.
