A splendid, probably late 19th Century, centre terrace house, in past years updated and most recently a new roof installed together with the boiler and fuseboard which is less than 2 years old, but now requiring further refurbishment and modernisation to exploit the undoubted potential the property offers! Externally the distinctive red brick double bay facade retains much of it’s original architectural detailing, whilst the interior includes a largely traditional layout of accommodation, tall ceilings, high skirtings in places, together with some nice cornices and feature fire surrounds. The ground floor includes a hall, bay fronted sitting room and open plan kitchen dining room with access to a utility. The first floor includes 3 bedrooms and a modern bathroom wc. It is worth mentioning the potential to extend in the loft subject to the necessary local authority planning permissions being granted.
The location couldn’t be more convenient! Within a few minutes walk is Highams Park Village Centre, highly prized rail crossing and Signal Box, and a sizeable Tesco store meeting everyone’s shopping needs. There is a vibrant range of Cafes, restaurants and eateries, excellent sought after schooling, and the mainline station offers a 20 minute or so journey to London’s Liverpool St., station.
