Property Description

Interestingly the property when renovated could create five bedrooms (subject to building regulations) and internally the property benefits from a recently installed combination boiler. The double glazed living accommodation comprises entrance hall with staircase to first floor, lounge with sliding doors through to a separate dining room and a fitted kitchen. To the first floor landing there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom. Located off from the main landing is a passage providing access through to the extended bedroom which measures 24’8” in length which we feel could be converted into two bedrooms or provide an en-suite subject to the usual building regulations. Outside to the front the property is screened by a mature range of trees and has a driveway leading to the single integral garage. To the rear there is an enclosed garden with outbuildings and backing onto open playing fields. The property is situated in an established location within easy reach of Ilkeston town centre. The market town of Ilkeston boasts an excellent range of local shops, public houses/restaurants, primary and secondary schools and train station (opened 2017). Ilkeston is strategically positioned between the Cities of Derby and Nottingham and is also well placed for the M1 motorway. The sale provides a genuine opportunity for the discerning purchaser looking to acquire a family home with excellent potential and at a very attractive guide price.
