Rarely available renovation/modernisation project in highly desirable location. This semi-detached house has accommodation extending to just over 1200 sq. ft. which includes an attached single garage, three bedrooms, two reception rooms, kitchen, utility, cloakroom and upstairs bathroom with separate toilet.
The property is situated in a highly desirable cul-de-sac just of Park Road in the heart of Old Lexden, The location is within a mile of Colchester town centre and the garden backs onto Colchester's Royal Grammar School. The house is set back from the road behind an established front garden and block paved drive which offers space to park two cars back to back. The drive leads to an attached single garage and continues to the side providing pedestrian access to the rear garden. The rear garden is south facing and very private with a number of established trees and shrub borders. It extends to over 100ft in depth by approximately 40/50 foot in width.
Internally the property is in need of renovation and we do not anticipate lenders approving low loan to value mortgage applications. There are a number of cracks in the property which have been independently surveyed and we do not believe to be of any ongoing significance, however a full remedial program will need to be undertook as they are un-slightly. This is in addition to the usual cosmetic improvements such as new kitchen, bathrooms, decoration etc. The heating system was updated in 2015 to include a new 'Vaillant' combi boiler and some replacement radiators.
Although in need of renovation the house is currently perfectly habitable and the desirable location and lovely plot are likely to generate significant interest. The marketing price is offered as a minimum guide and we anticipate offers exceeding the stated level. We will require any interested parties finances to be pre-qualified prior to viewing.
