This house has potential. It’s a word that makes me shudder because in reality in means gutting the house and spending three times as much as you planned over twice as long as you planned to get a house that looks like the one you have in your head. Still though, this house has potential.
The side of the house is odd, the way the front door looks like it’s in a lean to and the bare grey wall crying out for painting. I’m not sure about the windows, and there’s something funny going on in the corner between the bay window and the rest of the house at roof level. Street view reveals a garage to the side, and what looks like an awkward extension. 1507sqft is tight for a four bedroom, especially a four bed in this area. It’s more like an overgrown three bed, but if it’s well laid out inside it might be ok.
Inside there’s a radiator in the hall, so central heating has clearly been installed at some stage, but every fireplace is blocked by an ugly electric unit. What matters is that the fire places are still there though. Hidden as they are under layers of paint. Stripping them won’t be fun, but is probably possible. The other features like the folding doors in the sitting room and the bannisters are also lovely.
The light is good at the front of the house, but I’m not sure which way the house actually faces. The photos of the back garden show it as very dark, but if the house is East/West you may be ok for parts of the day. No photos of the bathroom or the kitchen and I don’t see many plugs dotted about the place. I also have questions over the garage, the extension out the back, and the overall internal layout of the house. Wonder what the planners would say about changing those around.
It needs gutting, it needs reorganising, but there is scope there. In short it has potential.
