Agent Comments

"A terraced property that requires extensive modernisation that is reflected in the asking price. Offered for sale with no forward chain allows the opportunity of an early completion date"

"The village centre of Netley Abbey and the picturesque Victoria country park are found nearby and are appealing aspects of this popular neighbourhood"

Introduction

Located in a popular residential area the outstanding feature is the long rear garden that enjoys a pleasant outlook backing onto a recreation park. The property will appeal to purchasers seeking a renovation project that provides them with the opportunity to put their stamp on the interior. Two reception rooms are supplemented by three double bedrooms and the close proximity of Victoria Country Park and Netley Abbey village centre will appeal to a wide range of buyers.

Description

The recessed entrance door opens to the hall where stairs ascend to the first floor. The lounge has a front aspect bay window and the wooden mantelpiece has a pebble effect electric fire. An open aspect flows through to the spacious dining room that has a gas fire and a rear elevation window with a door allowing access to the understairs cupboard. A further door leads to the kitchen that comprises a dated range of wall and base units, in need of replacement. A side elevation window allows natural light and a half glazed door permits access to the rear garden. The shower room positioned at the rear of the ground floor has a dated three piece suite and will require modernisation. On the first floor the landing has a spindled balustrade and a hatch allows access to the loft space. The front aspect bedroom is the full width of the house and is a generous double room with a fitted wardrobe and an original cast iron grate. Bedroom two is positioned in the centre of the house and is also a double with a fitted wardrobe and an original cast fire grate. Equally impressive in size, bedroom three has views over the rear garden and the recreation park beyond with the added benefit of an en-suite cloakroom.

Outside

A small area is found to the front of the property with a low brick wall defining the front boundary and a path leads to the entrance door. The long rear garden is an outstanding feature of the property with an attractive outlook and views to the recreation park found beyond the rear boundary. The garden will require landscaping.
