Property Description:

A truly unique property in a most desirable location on the outskirts of Tarvin village offering a semi-rural location yet with ease of access to plenty of amenities within the village. The property is a one-off for the area, which we are informed is a conversion of a former chapel and offers plenty of scope for improvement via a course of general modernisation.

Externally there is a small section off the road which allows side on parking for one vehicle and there is picket gated access to a pathway alongside the home where there are canopied coverings over the entrance door and door into the side porch. There is an enclosed lawned garden to the rear.

The auctioneers have not inspected the property but believe the accommodation comprises:
Entrance hall with staircase off which leads to a split staircase leading to both areas of the first floor, sitting room with exposed brick fireplace with open fire connected to the radiators, kitchen with a range of fitted units and a side porch/utility with plumbing for washing machine.
On the first floor there is a bedroom with a front bay and a bathroom with a dated three piece suite. The property features wooden glazing.

This home is certainly something that bit different and oozes kerb appeal.
