Semi-detached properties outperform detached houses

If you live in a semi-detached home you will be delighted to know that over the past five years they have increased in value by 37%, 12% more than a detached properties.

The allure of the semi has increased over the past few years as family buyers realise they can still maintain a good quality of family life at a more affordable price.

Semi-detached means two houses consciously designed to look from a distance like one property. It is believed that the first type of semi-detached properties were built in Black Heath in 1776 designed by the architects Thomas Gayfere and John Groves, both from Westminster. After that they were built in their thousands by Victorians and Edwardians.

This superb 1930's built semi-detached house has been extended and recently refurbished throughout (featured above). New features include a modern fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room finished to a high standard and with large bi-fold doors onto the garden.

On the first floor, there are four recently decorated bedrooms, one with en-suite, plus the family bathroom. The loft conversion holds a further spacious bedroom with en-suite shower room.

The property is located approximately half a mile away from both Cheam Village and Sutton town centre and benefits from local highly respected schools.
