THE PROPERTY An impressive and substantial double fronted Victorian terraced house, arranged over three storeys and offering generously proportioned adaptable accommodation. Standing on a large plot, with front garden, long enclosed mature back garden, and large garage to the end.

This comfortably appointed home, offering flexibility of layout and usage, provides excellent family accommodation. Traditionally built and retaining a wealth of period and characterful features, sympathetically upgraded and improved, and these complimented by a host of modern conveniences.

In recent years upgrading works have included additional underfloor ventilation, upgrading of the electrical system, two new consumer units, the kitchen with additional new units and an island, styled and in keeping with the original handcrafted kitchen. The central heating upgraded with a Worcester Bosch boiler, installed circa 2015, and a large capacity Worcester hot water tank. A downstairs shower room, upgraded with underfloor heating, and heated mirror, and the upstairs bathroom also upgraded, now most stylish. The roof upgraded with approval and substantially reconstructed in 1995, together with the installation of two bedrooms and eaves storage undertaken circa 1999.

The property occupying a surprisingly large and generous sized long plot, set back from the street with a wall at the front, with a private front garden and to the rear a long enclosed back garden enjoying a good degree of privacy with lawns. At the end a useful large double garage which was apparently formerly a stable, now well refurbished and for example having cabling laid on for electric car hook up, and an electric roller door.

Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
