DESCRIPTION

A detached house, 1 of just 7 in this small, select, little-known but most conveniently positioned cul-de-sac, within a 10/15 minute walk of The Moor, town centre, seafront and beaches, providing particularly well proportioned 3 double bedroom accommodation, set within level gardens, and with the benefit of driveway parking in addition to a detached garage.

THE PROPERTY

4 Marlborough Court is an elegant detached house of mellow brick elevations, occupying an extremely convenient position in this small, select cul-de-sac, close to the top of Killigrew Street.

In our client's family ownership for many years, the property benefits from double glazing, gas fired central heating and particularly well proportioned rooms, nigh on impossible to find in more modern houses, in a similar price range.

An impressive columned portico provides an imposing entrance to the property and into a spacious reception hall, off which there is a large walk-in cupboard, ground floor cloakroom/WC and easy-rising turning staircase leading to the first floor landing. The lounge has a bay window to the front elevation, open fireplace with real-flame gas fire, and double sliding doors opening into a separate dining room with views over the rear gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room has a comprehensive range of units, although many prospective purchasers may choose to refit this room. Upstairs, a large landing leads to the three double bedrooms, all of which have got fitted full height wardrobes, as well as to a bathroom/WC with separate shower cubicle, and separate second upstairs WC, again which would benefit from some degree of updating.

To the front of the property there is a large open-plan garden laid mainly to lawn, to the side of which a deep driveway leads to an offset garage which, together with timber fencing, completely encloses the level rear gardens, are ideal for those with children and pets etc, and include a further area of lawn, broad paved terrace, summerhouse and garden store/workshop.

For sale with the additional benefit of immediate vacant possession with no onward chain, we strongly recommend interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment.

THE LOCATION

Marlborough Court is a little-known cul-de-sac, located off Marlborough Crescent, close to the top of Killigrew Street. Consequently, the town's excellent range of shops, schools and leisure amenities are all within easy reach, including a doctors surgery, tennis club and junior school on Western Terrace, and convenience stores on Albany Road. A regular bus service from the top of Killigrew Street and along Western Terrace leads into the town centre as well as to the seafront, which is just a ten/fifteen minute walk away. Penmere Railway Halt is also nearby and, within a few minutes' walk down Killigrew Street, is The Moor, the town centre and harbourside, with its range of bars, restaurants and artisan shops.
