The Vendor's View
I saw plenty of potential when I first looked at this house. It is a great property in a fantastic area, but needed much TLC after the original purchaser passed away.The house is well-proportioned sitting over 3 floors. One of the middle floor rooms would make a lovely bright sitting room. We have carried out a lot of renovation and refurbishment, but a real highlight for me is the loft room that we have converted into a full bedroom, complete with ensuite and built in wardrobe. It has fabulous views.The house is in an excellent location, just 150m from the oldest school in England (Kings). It is also only 50m from The Dolphin, the best bistro pub in town, and my wife and I actually walk over a mile each way from our own home to eat there regularly.This is the classic 5 minutes from the shops house. It is very, very close to the High Street.All of the adjoining houses are occupied by people who have a strong sense of community and know the area well.We have rebuilt the house (a little more than expected!), which means that it has been fully re-wired, re-plastered, and re-plumbed. I love the windows, which are all wood sash windows, in-keeping with the local area and they have a 25 year guarantee. They look fabulous.The garden is small, but exceptionally sunny and easily managed.
