DESCRIPTION

AVAILABLE TO CASH BUYERS ONLY An extremely rare opportunity to purchase a lovely family home with, following Petrographic Assessment, a Grade A Classification 'but with identified weakness', occupying a popular residential setting an approximate 10/15 minute walk from the town centre, with extremely deep,well stocked and attractively landscaped gardens, enjoying a sunny south-westerly aspect, with far-reaching views over the outskirts of the town.

CONSTRUCTION

Believed to have been built circa 1925, 'of 9 shuttered low destiny concrete but with a partial 3 cavity. It has an apparent wall thickness of 3 per outer and inner leaf, with a cavity area above each wall, becoming solid on each corner and each leaf tied across with randomly positioned blocks at 36 high lifts' - survey report July 2002.

13 core samples were taken, resulting in some samples undergoing a Stage 2 examination. The results were non-Mundic but 'evidence of a slight unsoundness has been noted'. The advice of a structural engineer was recommended.

The structural engineer's report, dated 8 October 2002 states, 'I therefore conclude there is no likelihood of structural instability in the walls as a result of potentially under-strength concrete'. Copies of these reports are available upon request from the office of Laskowski & Company and due to the classification of the shuttered concrete construction, the property is available to cash buyers only.

OVERALL CLASSIFICATION

All wall samples - Class A but with identified weakness.

THE PROPERTY

35 Trescobeas Road occupies a highly convenient position, close to the health centre, hospital and secondary school, and within an approximate ten/fifteen minute walk of the town centre.

In our clients' ownership for approximately thirty years, and now to be sold with the benefit of immediate vacant possession with no onward chain, the property's availability provides an extremely rare opportunity to purchase a detached family house, at a price reflective of its lack of mortgageability, but the equivalent of much smaller properties, with far fewer amenities, in the town just voted by the readers of The Sunday Times as 'The Best Place to Live in the UK' - March 2017.

Set well back from the roadside, a large brick pavia forecourt, sufficient for two/three vehicles, including a camper van etc, leads through the attractively stocked small front garden area to the house, with level pathways surrounding, one of which may provide space for the provision of a utility room and ground floor cloakroom if required (subject to consents). An entrance porch opens into an attractively appointed kitchen with comprehensive range of high gloss units with oak worksurfaces, beyond which an inner hallway leads to a separate dining room (possible fourth bedroom) and lovely, light lounge with oak flooring, glass-fronted fireplace and double doors into a superb south-west facing conservatory.

Upstairs, there are three double bedrooms, two of which are double aspect, and an attractively reappointed bathroom/WC with white suite. Gas central heating is provided throughout, together with replacement uPVC double glazing.

To the rear of the property, there is a magnificent garden, much deeper than expected, enjoying a gently sloping, sunny, south-westerly aspect, with broad terrace accessed from the conservatory, lawns, orchard area, kitchen garden and two greenhouses - this whole area being well enclosed by mature hedging and timber fencing, making it ideal for the keen gardener and those with children and pets etc.
