Hyman Hill are delighted to offer for sale this charming deceptively spacious home which is arranged over three floors and offers substantial versatile accommodation. Having been purchased by the present owners as two separate apartments, the property was converted back to a family home in 2014/15. Still benefiting from two fitted kitchens, fuse boards and combination boilers, it would be a simple conversion to reinstate the accommodation back to two separate dwellings which would create a one bedroom ground floor garden flat and a first/second floor maisonette boasting two double bedrooms and two bathrooms (subject to necessary consents). Ideal as a family home, investment or for two families to live side by side yet independently, this property provides lots of options and has plenty of potential.
