Doncaster, South Yorkshire
1950's freehold house
1950s properties are especially popular – it was an era of spacious, light rooms and well-sized gardens. Although this property required complete refurbishment and garden clearance, we could see the potential. There were also some possible structural issues to overcome, all of which we sorted out at a timescale that fitted in with the seller, which was slightly longer than usual.
The house is semi-detached, with 3 bedrooms and 1 reception room plus kitchen. The survey warned us that ‘it would be difficult to sell due to poor physical condition and/or location and/or market conditions’ but we went ahead, paying well above the auction estimate, With the right works, this property will make a great family home.
