Property Details


No.20 Lowgate Street forms one quarter of an interesting 20th Century period pair of semi detached houses with their distinctive double bay style front elevation. There are very few houses of this double bay style in Eye, these being the only two pairs of their type. The house is fortunate in having vehicular access off the road to the rear where along with its neighbours, owns one section of the now cart lodge garages. Moreover, No.20 is the only one with an adjoining workshop store at the side. The house itself is well presented and features a very smart Amtico wood block style floor throughout the ground floor and with the classic glazed tile fire surround, shutters and picture rail, gives the new owners a great opportunity to create a stunning Art Deco reception space. The entrance hall is also notable not just for the aforementioned flooring but also the original panelling to the staircase. The well appointed kitchen includes built-in appliances along with a sink in a copper finish to match the back plates to the numerous wall sockets and switches. Likewise, the bathroom has been remodelled to now include a contemporary roll top bath on ball and claw feet along with a separate shower enclosure. The bathroom is finished in an increasingly popular textured panelling system for both style and practicality, Being offered for sale with NO ONWARD CHAIN, the property in more detail comprises...
