The Property
2 LONGFELLOW ROAD is a brick built detached family house with extended accommodation on two floors. It occupies a generous plot in a pleasant position set well back from the road in this popular part of Banbury and it backs into a small park. Whilst improvements have been made in recent years including replacement uPVC double glazing in 2007 and a new heating system circa 2009 we believe that most prospective purchasers will wish to carry out a programme of modernisation.

A floorplan has been prepared to show the dimensions and layout of the property as detailed below. Some of the main features are as follows:

* A spacious detached family house occupying a pleasant position in a favoured residential area.

* Open plan living accommodation.

* Kitchen/breakfast room overlooking the rear garden.

* Utility room with personal door to the garage, plumbing for washing machine, wall mounted gas fired boiler and door to side, door to former dark room which has water and drainage connected and therefore could be converted to a shower room if required.

* Large first floor double bedroom in the extension which enjoys a double aspect with large windows to front and rear.

* Large second bedroom with window to front and fitted wardrobes.

* Third bedroom with built-in wardrobe and window to front.

* Two further bedrooms.

* Bathroom fitted with a coloured suite comprising panelled bath, wash hand basin, WC, radiator and window.

* Garden and driveway to front providing off road parking and leading to the single garage which has previously been used as an office with power and light connected, window and personal door to the utility room.

* To the rear there is a large garden comprising a patio, lawn and borders with a further area beyond a substantial shrubbery. Beyond the rear garden there is a small park which might prove useful for young families and dog walkers.

All mains services are connected. There is a wall mounted Ideal gas fired boiler which is located in the utility room.
