A detached bungalow in need of refurbishment within walking distance of town centre and beach. Entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, two double bedrooms, bathroom, double glazing, gardens, off road parking and garage.
THE PROPERTY: This detached bungalow is in need of a programme of updating but ultimately would make a comfortable home within walking distance of the beach and town centre of Aldeburgh. Built by Wm C Reade of Aldeburgh 42 Leiston Road is of a brick construction under a tiled roof, is well set back from the road and has gas fired central heating (not tested) and sealed unit double glazing and to appreciate the potential of the property earliest viewing is recommended.
Double glazed double doors lead to an entrance lobby which opens in to the entrance hall. There is a small, walk in storage room which was formerly a cloakroom and we are informed that the plumbing is still in place if a new owner wished to reinstate. The sitting room has a tiled fire place with mantelpiece and hearth and window to rear. The dining room gives access to the conservatory which is double glazed and has double doors to out side. In the kitchen/breakfast room there are a range of fitted floor units with worksurface and stainless steel sink with single drainer inset and a floor mounted gas fired boiler. The property has two double bedrooms, one with tiled fireplace and a bathroom with panelled bath with overbath shower, washbasin and WC. Outside the majority of the garden lies at the front of the property and is laid to walkways interspersed with shrubs and borders, a private drive at the side provides off road parking and leads to the single garage and behind the property is a paved patio.
LOCATION: Aldeburgh has an excellent range of local shops, two supermarkets (one being a Tesco Express, a short walk from the property), art galleries, fine restaurants and pubs. There is a cinema, library, primary school together with a cottage hospital a doctors' surgery and dental practise. There are golf courses at Aldeburgh and Thorpeness and sailing clubs on the river Alde and the town has a beautiful shingle beach and a strong association with the arts and music in particular with the nearby Snape Maltings Concert hall being home to the internationally renowned Aldeburgh Festival.
