From St. James' church travel south along Upgate and continue to the crossroads traffic lights. Turn left here along Newmarket, proceed to the top of the hill and follow the road until number 85 is found on the left side. The Property
Believed to date back to the Victorian era, this terraced cottage has mellow brick-faced principal walls beneath a main pitched timber roof structure covered in clay pan tiles. A more recent single-storey extension at the rear has a reclaimed brick faced rear wall under a flat roof covering. The property has uPVC double-glazed windows and a gas central heating system with a condensing gas combination boiler. There is a lawned garden to the rear and a brick and pan-tiled garden store.
The rooms are well-arranged with a feeling of space in the split-level living area where the two reception rooms are linked by a shaped walk-through archway with step down at the rear.
The property could equally interest first time buyers or investors and is located to the south side of the town centre just a few paces from a convenience store and the nearby Brown Cow and Boar's Head pubs, whilst there is a choice of take-away outlets on Aswell Street. Accommodation
