Situated in the highly sought after Bassett Green Estate conservation area is this character Collins house that is offered for sale with no forward chain.
"This is a rare opportunity to experience a village lifestyle while living in the heart of a modern cosmopolitan city.”

The accommodation comprises a reception hall with a cloakroom, two comfortable reception rooms, a modern kitchen, three bedrooms and a bathroom. A number of nearby properties have converted the sizeable loft space to provide an additional bedroom and (subject to the necessary consents) there maybe similar scope here. A rare feature is the fully enclosed carport that measures 27'11" x 8'9" and benefits from its own up and over door on the front aspect. Connecting the single garage and the main house it forms a sizable contiguous and secure covered space. The rear garden measures 68' x 32' and has a Westerly aspect to the top left hand corner.
Approached via a recessed entrance porch that has a courtesy light, the reception hall features Parana pine floorboards, a side elevation window, a useful coats cupboard and a cloakroom. The spacious dining room has the advantage of a bay window enjoying views to the green and the open grate benefits from a working chimney. A double glazed sliding patio door and side panel lead from the lounge to the rear garden. Potential purchasers could combine this room with the adjacent kitchen to create an enviably proportioned open plan space that is a popular modern day lifestyle. The kitchen was fitted approximately three years ago and comprises light wood finished wall and base units with complementary work surfaces and an inset single drainer sink unit. Fitted appliances include a five burner gas hob, oven and grill whilst a double glazed window and half double glazed door overlook the rear garden. Featuring a secondary glazed side elevation window and stripped pine floorboards, the landing also has a loft hatch complete with a retractable loft ladder. The large master bedroom enjoys views over the top green and the full height/width wardrobes have sliding doors. Bedroom two has pleasant views over the rear garden and similarly features full height wardrobes with sliding doors that houses the gas fired boiler.
