3 bedroom Semi-Detached House for sale
Thornbera Road, Bishop's Stortford


Character 1950's built 3 bedroom semi detached house which requires complete renovation but offers an excellent opportunity to extend & remodel as there is a 140' south facing rear garden.
N.B. The present owner has submitted an application for side and rear extensions to speed up the process for the potential buyer.

The property comprises: Entrance hall, dining room, large living room, kitchen, 3 bedrooms, bathroom & a separate WC.

The large rear garden is completely overgrown so we are unable to verify the 140' measurement but as we have previously sold a similar house in the road, we are aware of the size of the gardens & the potential offered.
The front garden has room to park at least 3 vehicles & there is a car port that runs down one side of the house where there is undercover parking for 3 cars plus a dilapidated garage. The size of the garden presents an excellent opportunity to build a home office or workshop.

The property is located on the southern side of town, within walking distance of the mainline railway station & several well regarded schools. EPC Band F.
