Kenton are delighted to present to the market, this traditional semi-detached house, situated within close proximity to the ever-popular and coveted Darrick Wood Schools and boasting significant potential for a prospective buyer. Whilst requiring modernisation and renovation throughout, the property has evidently been cared for and well-maintained and so resultantly, is generally presented in good condition and features both double glazing throughout and gas central heating. Internally, to the ground floor, you will find two separate ample reception rooms, in addition to a kitchen to the rear. The first floor accommodation comprises three bedrooms (the "first" and "second" of which feature built-in wardrobe space) and a family bathroom. Externally, there is an attractive, well-maintained and ample rear garden which features a summerhouse and furthermore there is also a garage. To the front, there is a further attractive garden area and also off-street parking available via a shared driveway. As aforementioned, also worthy of note is the extensive potential the property offers, namely the possibility to extend to both the rear and/or convert the loft, both of which there are precedents for amongst neighbouring properties (of course any prospective extension would be subject to planning permission). Starts Hill Road is most conveniently-situated, with a vast array of general amenities, transport links and reputable schools nearby. Locksbottom High Street is a mere few minutes' walk away and features a range of popular restaurants and bars and convenient shops. Within short-walking distance you will find various bus routes which will serve both Orpington Station and Bromley for instance, and the M25 is also within close proximity. As referenced, the ever-popular and well-renowned Darrick Wood Schools are also a mere few minutes' walk away. Offered to the market with the benefit of no onward chain.
