7 Greenacres is a well-presented and proportioned, semi-detached house that has been in the same ownership for over twenty years, this is a testament to the light, airy and comfortable accommodation that the property provides. Having been the subject of a rolling programme of refurbishment over the years, including a recently refitted kitchen and en suite shower room, the property is presented in very good order throughout. Being situated on a corner plot the gardens are of a good size and face both south and west, and the property also benefits from a good sized driveway providing off road parking for a number of vehicles.
