Fowlers are very pleased to offer this charming character, unlisted home, close to the very centre of the town but in a lovely quiet spot with a large garden and a parking space. 4 Orchard Terrace is a deceptively spacious family home with a big farmhouse style kitchen, a large sitting room, a dining room, a study, a utility room and a w.c. and rear and side porches. Upstairs are four bedrooms comprising a main bedroom suite with an ensuite bath/shower room, a large second bedroom suite with a large sitting area, two further bedrooms and a bathroom. The house is very well presented having been the subject of an extensive refurbishment within the last twelve years including the addition of solar panels. The garden is really quite large and extends out from the front of the house and along the side where there is a timber built Bothy which would be ideal as an Airbnb or an out of house study. The garden also has a potting shed, summerhouse and a greenhouse. At the rear is an area for parking a modest size car and a large garage and a wood store. The sheer convenience of this house and its excellent amenities this close to the centre of town means that it must be viewed to be properly appreciated.
