Beyond the attractive but modest façade of this period red brick end of terrace property lays a truly inspirational residence of great charm and character. Unconventional in layout and full of surprises, this highly individual/ quirky interior will suit young professionals seeking a comfortable and trendy home within minutes of the workplace. The original house at ground floor level is now open plan living space with a cleverly designed addition to the rear incorporating, the kitchen, two bathrooms, a laundry area and an additional bedroom whilst retaining the much wanted outdoor space. Upstairs there are two generous bedrooms one of which is used as a home office. Potential purchasers will appreciate that imagination and creativity were the key elements to this successful transformation and viewing is highly recommended.
