Owner occupied and much loved, with a gorgeous private garden which is fully fenced and secure. There is good heating, a nice sunny kitchen with oodles of cupboards. The bedrooms are very spacious with inbuilt robes and the toilet is separate from the bathroom. The automated garage is convenient, although you will be so close to town, your car will possibly be in there more than often. Townhouses in the central location are incredibly popular, I urge you to act with haste.
