This bright, beautifully presented semi-detached villa was originally constructed during the 1970’s and is arranged over two floors. The tastefully decorated interior offers an ideal family home with the benefit of gas central heating fired from a one year old Combi boiler, and double glazed windows with PVC frames. French doors within the spacious front facing sitting room give access the well fitted kitchen/dining room, and the more recently constructed conservatory, which in turn leads to the easily managed back garden. The ground floor also contains a useful study, or playroom. At first floor level you will find two double bedrooms, the master with a three-door fitted wardrobe. The attractive bathroom has fully tiled walls, a three piece modern suite, and a shower attachment with a glazed screen over the bath. The property also has a single garage located to the rear of the back garden.
