Thought to have been constructed circa. 1934, this 'ideal for family', semi-detached house stands on a level plot that includes a frontage, (that could easily be converted into private, off road parking), a shared driveway and a sizeable rear garden which includes areas of patio, lawn and borders.

The accommodation briefly comprises of; a reception hall, living room, dining room, fitted kitchen, landing, three well-proportioned bedrooms and a large bathroom.

The house has been predominantly fitted with uPVC double glazing which has been sympathetically installed to include stained glass quarter light windows matching the original stained glass windows (two of which have been retained and secondary double glazed as an eye-catching character feature). Solid Oak flooring has been fitted throughout the ground floor and a smart, contemporary, white fitted kitchen has been installed with Oak worktops incorporating a fitted De Dietrich induction hob and a fitted oven and grill. A beautiful period style 'statement' bathroom is a stand-out feature of the first floor accommodation with a stand-alone roll top bath (with an umbrella shower over), as its focal point. The house also boasts gas central heating and offers plenty of storage space including a pantry, a boarded loft area with an extended loft hatch and pull down ladder, a large, modern garden shed and three original outhouses.

MILEHOUSE Milehouse is a late Victorian, Edwardian and 1930s suburb. It is now notable for being the depot base of the local City Bus company and has a popular, Wetherspoons pub.
