Other Details

The property benefits from proximity to many local amenities including schools, shops, supermarkets and has good transport links. Dewsbury train station is 100 metres away and Leeds city centre is only 15 minutes by train.  

The property is in need of a new bathroom and some minor redecoration in order to maximise the potential re-sale value. The estimated timescale for the work is 4 weeks, with a good finish in preparation for letting the property for 1 year.  

The property was previously sold for £55,000 in April 2012 and is being purchased at below market value.  We are expecting to achieve a rental of £375 pcm for one year and then a projected sale price of £55,000.  

Dewsbury is situated between Leeds and Bradford 8 miles (13 km) to the north, Huddersfield a similar distance to the south west, and Wakefield 6 mi (10 km) east. Its proximity to these major urban centres, the M1 and M62 motorways and its position on the Huddersfield Line, served by the TransPennine Express, have contributed to its popularity as a commuter town. Dewsbury is part of the West Yorkshire Urban Area, although its natural boundaries are not well defined, with built up areas of the town running into Batley, Heckmondwike and Ossett. The town is dominated by hills, notably Earlsheaton, Dewsbury Moor, Staincliffe and Thornhill. The town centre is between 130 and 180 feet (40 and 55 metres) above sea level, rising to 360 ft (110 m) at Earlsheaton and Batley Carr, and 755 ft (230 m) at Grange Moor. The approach from Earlsheaton through the Wakefield Road cutting, constructed in 1830, is dramatic with the view of the town centre in the Calder Valley opening up. (ref: Wiki)
