Property description

Purchasing this property with A lifetime lease

This property is offered at a reduced price for people aged over 60 through Homewise’s Home for Life Plan. Through the Home for Life Plan, anyone aged over sixty can purchase a lifetime lease on this property which discounts the price from its full market value. The size of the discount you are entitled to depends on your age, personal circumstances and property criteria and could be anywhere between 8.5% and 59% from the property’s full market value. The above price is for guidance only. It is based on our average discount and would be the estimated price payable by a 69-year-old single male. As such, the price you would pay could be higher or lower than this figure.

For more information or a personalised quote, just give us a call. Alternatively, if you are under 60 or would like to purchase this property without a Home for Life Plan at its full market price of £450,000, please contact Cubitt & West.

Property description

A true blank canvass and somewhere for you to make your mark. For those looking for a project to call their own look no further! Situated in the ever popular Solway Avenue this semi detached home is considered ideal for those who commute as it offers you great road transport links to both the A23 and also the A27 along with local bus services at the end of the road in Mackie Avenue. For families, Patcham High School is located close by.

Well proportioned rooms offer you flexible accommodation over two floors and with the first floor at first fix stage there is tremendous scope to change the layout and even add a further dormer (subject to planning permission being obtained) to provide you further space.

You’ll have the chance to transform the garden into an idyllic paradise and a safe space for children. There is the benefit of both a double garage and also off road parking to the front for several cars.

If you are looking for somewhere to buy and finish the renovations on, call us now to book your appointment to view but hurry as houses in this location and affording this much potential are rarely available and always generate significant interest.
