As you approach the property you will see that all the houses along the side of the road have wrought iron railings in front of them with a small gate leading to an initial front terrace which can be adorned with plants.

A staircase separates the kitchen and the living room leading up to two double bedrooms with built in wardrobes and a neutrally finished bathroom with a window overlooking the garden.
Planning permission had been previously granted to extend the property but has lapsed now. There is further potential to also go up into the attic, creating another bedroom, as other residents in the street have done.
