An exciting and rare opportunity to purchase a DETACHED HOUSE requiring modernisation and with the scope to extend and create a spacious, individual property in one of the most popular and sought after residential areas of Ipswich. Built in the late 1940's of traditional brick construction under a plain tiled roof the house is situated at the end of a quiet service road just off Borrowdale Avenue on the North side of the town, on a delightful west facing plot extending to approximately 1/3 acre.
The property is conveniently located within easy reach of the principal Ipswich schools including Sidegate Lane & St Margarets C of E Junior Schools, Northgate High School and Ipswich School, one of the leading independent schools in the county. Christchurch Park and the town centre with its vibrant Waterfront and comprehensive shopping and leisure facilities are within easy walking distance and there is a bus service into Ipswich town centre. In addition, for commuters Ipswich mainline railway station with its regular inter-city service to London's Liverpool Street Station (approx. 70 minutes) is only 10 minutes drive.
There is NO CHAIN and we strongly recommend a viewing to fully appreciate the potential that exists for a purchaser to put their own stamp on a property thus creating a unique and sizeable Family House in a superb location overlooking a lightly wooded greensward.
