AGENT’S COMMENT – “The present owners purchased the property in 2009 and the renovation works were undertaken by professional trades people.  Works completed included a new roof and pointing of chimney stack.  Internal walls were skimmed throughout. New bathroom and kitchen were fitted in 2010.  All floors have been sanded, internal doors have been dipped and there are attractive period pine features throughout the property.  Two new fireplaces were fitted with working open fires.  Oak doors and slate tiled floor in the breakfast kitchen.  Four good size bedrooms upstairs plus a boarded loft area with insulated and plaster boarded roof, power points, lighting and Velux window.  Abbey Timber and Damp Guarantee with 20 years remaining.  The townhouse also benefits from a spacious South West facing rear yard which has a parking space but this could easily be converted to make a larger rear garden”.
