Magrathea has had only two owners, and belonged to the previous owner for over 100 years. In 1997, the house was extended to the rear to provide a spacious kitchen/breakfast room.
This attractive Victorian house is in good decorative order throughout, with quality floor coverings, and there is potential for a loft conversion, subject to planning permission.
The sitting room has a feature black marble and tiled fireplace with an inset coal effect gas fire. There is a separate dining room with a rear aspect, and a cloakroom off the hall. A second front door opens into a passageway beside the hall.
The large kitchen/breakfast room has a range of appliances including oven, hob, extractor and washing machine. There is a large first floor landing, a spacious bathroom and 2 bedrooms. The attractive, private rear garden is west facing, and the house benefits from gas central heating (with a Worcester Bosch combination boiler, fitted December 2014) and the majority of the windows are UPVC double glazed.
Directions: From the roundabout at the junction of Lewens Lane, Leigh Road and Poole Road, proceed into Leigh Road. Proceed past St Catherines, and turn right into Crescent Road, and number 8 can be found on the right hand side.
