We are pleased to present: A spacious modern semi-detached house, requiring some refurbishment, on the popular Cedars Park development, on the Eastern side of town, convenient for the A14 and station. Hall, Cloakroom, Lounge, Dining Room, Kitchen, 3 Bedrooms - 1 En-Suite, Bathroom, S-Facing Garden, Generous Parking, VIEW ASAP.


This property was built in approximately 2005, with rendered elevations and a tiled roof. It is presented to the market at a price to allow potential purchasers the opportunity to personalise their own home, owing to the fact that it now needs some updating and cosmetic refurbishment. Instead of paying top money, and buying a home which has been finished to someone else's taste, which may not necessarily appeal to everyone, the purchaser of this home can finish it to their own tastes, and therefore viewing is recommended at the earliest opportunity.


From the town centre, proceed along Gipping Way and at the traffic lights, turn left into Navigation Approach, signposted towards Cedars Park. Continue along and at the roundabout, go straight over into Mortimer Road. Turn right into Creeting Road East, and then take the second right turning into Cormorant Drive. Turn right into Avocet Gardens, and proceed along, where the property is located, at the left turning, on the right hand corner.
