St Margarets Crescent, Leiston | £225,000

An attractive mid twentieth century semi detached three bedroom family house in a popular residential area within walking distance of the town centre and within convenient reach of the Suffolk Heritage Coast. The property has great potential and deserves early viewing. Good parking, sunny garden.
This most appealing semi-detached post-war family house is situated in a popular residential area on the western edge of Leiston, within walking distance of the town centre amenities and within convenient reach, by car, of the beautiful Suffolk Heritage Coast. The house, which would benefit from general updating, is centrally heated by gas fired radiators. The boiler has recently been replaced. The accommodation has a spacious sitting room and a separate dining room which is adjacent to the fitted kitchen. There is potential to open the kitchen and dining room into one room. The original coal shed and stores have been altered to create a very useful utility room and rear lobby. There is a downstairs w.c. and a first floor bathroom. The bedrooms (two doubles and a single room) are well proportioned and benefit from built in wardrobes. The garden is of a generous size and offers space to extend the accommodation (subject to the usual consents). There is a wide frontage with a driveway that affords good off street parking and a pretty front garden. The property retains many original architectural details including lovely original internal doors and door furniture. An internal inspection is strongly recommended to appreciate the style and the potential of the accommodation offered within.
