A rare opportunity to acquire a detached family home in need of modernisation situated on the much sought after and highly regarded address of Battery Lane.
This charming 1950's detached house is offered to the market for the first time in nearly four decades and is being sold with a heavy heart. Constructed from brick and spar dashed elevations under a pitched tiled roof, this home currently offers 1509.8 Sq. Ft of living accommodation and offers potential to substantially increase the foot print (subject to the necessary planning permissions) creating a home of your dreams to enjoy for many years to come.
The property is in need of total renovation throughout offering the opportunity for the purchaser to bring their own style and vision to this unique location. The accommodation in brief currently comprises; entrance hall, cloakroom, living room, snug, dining room, kitchen, utility room and side porch. The first floor offers three west facing bedrooms with the master bedroom featuring a balcony showcasing spectacular views over the Lake Grounds and beyond, across the Estuary. A family bathroom and separate WC completes the internal accommodation. Outside, the property sits nicely in mature, landscaped gardens, with ample space to the front, side and rear of the house providing significant room to extend without over developing the plot. The gardens are delightful and would not be compromised by enlarging the house, offering a wonderful space to sit and relax and entertain in the warmer summer months whilst benefiting from a private pathway to the Lake Grounds and panoramic views of the estuary and the Welsh coastline. A dilapidated garage and driveway are located at the top of the property.
With homes of this nature rarely available, coupled with the potential and unique location, Goodman & Lilley anticipate a good degree of interest.
