Semi-detached house

Property Description:

A superb opportunity to acquire a freehold high yield residential investment property currently producing £17,000 per annum.

Interestingly the property has planning permission granted under application number 20/00904/FUL for a two storey extension to provide two studio rooms. When works are complete we would anticipate a rental income for the two studios of approximately £13,000 per annum. This would then equate to a combined and gross income of £30,000 per annum.

The semi-detached brick built property has the benefit of uPVC double glazing, gas central heating and in brief comprises entrance vestibule, passaged hallway with staircase to first floor, bedroom one with en-suite shower room, a communal lounge with a cast iron multi burner, fitted breakfast kitchen room with lean-to. To the first floor the passaged landing leads to the front bedroom with an en-suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a separate shower room. Outside to the front there is a small forecourt and an adjacent driveway leads to a single detached garage and to the rear an enclosed low maintenance garden.

The property is situated in the context of an established residential location conveniently positioned for Pride Park, Rolls-Royce and the city centre.
