A sizeable bay fronted three bed semi detached period home in the heart of the South Wales valleys needs a fair bit of fettling to get it in tune.

But once the work is completed the substantial house in gardens front and back, stained glass window and with a piano in the front room, will be ready to put on a show.

Sean Roper, of Newport-based Paul Fosh Auctions, said: “The house, in the town of Merthyr a place which is currently enjoying a prolonged period of renewed investment and job creation, has the basics of which, in the correct hands, will make a truly wonderful family home.

“The house retains a wealth of period features including a solid balustrade. There are two reception rooms, a kitchen and dining room on the ground floor with three bedrooms and bathroom above. There are gardens to the front and rear with outstanding views of the surrounding mountains.

“Any buyer will have to look beyond what is currently before their eyes inside the house which is quite challenging, to see what can be achieved, with some imagination, from this property . The house requires full modernisation and improvement but has UPVC double glazing. If retained, the many original features that come with the house would enhance any future improvements.

“The property is just a short distance from the town centre with an excellent range of shops, amenities and restaurants, bars/pubs. There are great transport links with a train station with direct links to Cardiff and road links to the A465 and A470.”
