An attractive stone built three bedroom terrace house, standing with fine views from a tucked away and elevated town location.
Presented to a pleasing modern style, this mid terrace stone built town cottage provides an excellent opportunity for the first time buyer, professional couple or small family. The house offers three storey accommodation, which includes a stylish attic third bedroom, whilst outside there is a modest cottage garden fronting the property and to a higher level at the rear a larger patio and garden, with a wooden shed, all easily managed. Superb views are enjoyed from the house and gardens, across the town and valley towards the opposing hills of Masson, High Tor, Riber and Bolehill on the far horizon.
