Property Description

This detached home has been in the same family since it was built in the 1920's and now offers terrific potential for someone to create a family home with a good sized garden in a favoured location. The house will require updating but has space to both sides and the rear where it might be possible to extend, once the necessary permissions are received. Many original features remain in the house, amongst which are solid oak doors, picture rails and a plate display rail in the hall. The accommodation includes two equal sized reception rooms, a kitchen and a utility room on the ground floor, whilst there are three bedrooms and a bathroom with separate lavatory upstairs. Barratt Lane is a tree lined road in Attenborough and is well placed for a number of nearby amenities, including shops and transport links and Attenborough mainline station.
The house is to be sold with the benefit of no upward chain and vacant possession. The Energy Performance rating is being assessed.

"I have learned to distrust landlords at every turn. CP Walker is a big exception. Always very courteous and down to earth. We were treated with respect, even though, as (postgrad) students, could have been regarded with suspicion. Good communicators. Addressed various issues (e.g., maintenance) on a quick - or at least very fair – timeframe. [Student Tenant for 1 year]"
