Property description

A delightful, very spacious and characterful extended 4 bedroom semi-detached Victorian family home enjoying excellent views over Hillsborough, the harbour and Capstone, the Bristol Channel and the distant Welsh coastline. The property has the considerable benefit of a double garage/workshop, good sized gardens and excellent potential for a sizeable loft conversion if required and subject to any necessary consent. This one is a must see!

7 Chambercombe Park Road is a fine example of a characterful, extended and spacious Victorian semi-detached family home, providing all the benefits of modern day living but retaining many original period features. The property is perfect for the family market with generous sized rooms throughout including a 21ft x 15ft kitchen/family room as well as an impressive 22ft x 17ft lounge/diner. The accommodation is bright and airy with the living space spread over two floors, benefitting from gas fired central heating. In addition, there is a huge open loft space which has access via a concealed staircase. This area provides plenty of scope and potential for conversion to form additional accommodation and would make a fabulous master bedroom suite, for example. Consents may be required depending on the nature of the works undertaken.

Externally, the property has gardens to the front and the rear and there is the considerable benefit of a double garage/workshop which has an electrically operated door. There are delightful far reaching sea and coastal views which look over the neighbouring Brimlands Playing Fields to Hillsborough, across to Capstone, the picturesque harbour and Lantern Hill, and out over the Bristol Channel and distant Welsh coastline.

The local Tesco supermarket is also just 1/2 mile away.
