3 bed Semi-Detached, Deighton
A good sized 3 bedroom semi detached period property forming one half of the Victorian Deighton Police Station. It has lots of original features and has been in the same ownership for almost 50 years. It now requires some modernisation which has been reflected in the asking price.
Full DetailsDESCRIPTION This is one Half of the Original Deighton Police Station which was Converted Many Years Ago into a Pair of Semi-Detached Homes
This stone built period residence is one half of the former police station which has retained many of the original features including deep skirting boards, moulded covings, ceiling roses, picture rails, and even a couple of the cells remain in the basement. It has been in the same ownership for almost 50 years and is now ready for a programme of updating which is reflected in the asking price. This is a great opportunity to create a lovely home to your own specification and design.
Externally, there is a small garden area to the front, a long driveway running down the side of the house providing ample parking and leading to a detached garage. The rear garden is now mostly tarmacked and paved with planted boarders but it does provide a generously sized area to sit out, barbecue, etc and has the original outside high flush w.c. in a stone outbuilding.
It is also worth noting that this home is for sale with the benefit of no upper chain to hold you up.
