There are two entrances to the rear, and the main front door, which opens onto a full-width patio overlooking the substantial garden. The property also benefits from gas fired central heating, and a large attic with loft ladder access allowing excellent storage or extension possibilities.
Externally, there is a large driveway offering parking for several cars, plus a garage, accessed off Paterson Street. With access down both sides of the house, to the fabulous garden with full-width patio area directly outside the sitting and dining room it offers an excellent space for informal entertaining.
