Property Overview

REQUIRING MODERNISATION and offering great potential, this garden fronted TWO DOUBLE BEDROOM mid terraced, has a LARGE WESTERLY FACING GARDEN. On viewing you will see potential to adapt to create three bedrooms (subject to necessary permission being passed for an additional window to front), bringing the bathroom upstairs, and therefore having a utility/ WC on the ground floor where the current bathroom is. Just an idea that would need further investigation.

Having double glazing (apart from one of the two bathroom windows) and gas central heating (via a Worcester boiler) the accommodation comprises: Lounge, Dining Kitchen, rear lobby, bathroom, first floor landing and two double bedrooms. Externally there is a large WESTERLY FACING garden, which provides paved and lawned areas.

Located well for the countryside/ Canal and town center, both within a short walk, we believe this be a great all rounder for its location. The property is offered for sale with no seller chain involved.

From our office proceed down the hill turning left into Waters Green, and follow the road under the railway bridge/ through the traffic lights and across The Silk Road into Buxton Road. Ascend the hill taking the 7th turning on the right into Black Road where the property can be identified further along on the left hand side by our Reeds Rains For Sale board.

Energy Performance Certificate (EPCs)

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All homes bought, sold or rented require an EPC. EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
