But to be honest, you’ll probably have to fall for the exterior rather than the interior.

The agent points to the house being ‘well-maintained’ by the current owners, but adds that it has ‘a wealth of potential for anyone looking to renovate and extended the existing residence’. Very true. At least, in terms of renovating.

The house still has much of its original shape / design intact. That’s the selling point here. Yes, updates have been undertaken and the interior is now something of a mix of eras. But that’s just decoration. With some thought, this one could be something special once more.

Frustratingly, we can only see so much of the house on the agent’s shots, so it’s hard to pinpoint period features here. They might well be there and really only a viewing will give the full picture. Regardless of that, the house still has amazing potential.

A decent amount of space too, with four bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as a reception room, family room, dining room, kitchen and utility / storage areas. A garage too, which is connected to the main house. Gardens too, which also look substantial.
