Description

One bed cottage (originally 2) (plus double loft room accessed via fixed staircase) - offering excellent value for money accommodation or as an investment opportunity.
Located just off Hylton Road near to the Royal Hospital, this mid terraced cottage was originally a two bedroom with traditional layout but has been reorganised internally bringing the bathroom into what would have been the second bedroom and placing a fixed staircase into the front double bedroom which provides access to a double loft room. Although this loft conversion is believed to have been done many years ago, it is not known whether approvals were obtained therefore we cannot market this excellent space as an additional double bedroom although this is how we believe the previous owners had used it.
Internally the property briefly comprises; entrance hall, front double bedroom, fixed staircase leading to double loft room, spacious bathroom, central lounge, rear kitchen, rear yard.
This is an excellent opportunity for investment purposes due to price and general location and a minimum monthly rental of £450 could be expected or up to £495 depending on the quality of interior presentation. Alternatively the property would make an excellent low cost home in a good location close to hospital and transport links.
Viewing arrangements can be made by contacting our local office. More advice on investment property and tenant find/management services can be obtained on request.
