This individual detached bungalow has been the much loved home of just one family since it was built, some fifty years ago. It now offers scope for some updating and improvement, or even a more radical scheme of remodelling or replacement, providing an opportunity to create something really special, subject to any necessary planning consents.
There are three double bedrooms and a spacious L-shaped reception room, in addition to the kitchen, bathroom and cloakroom/WC.
The bungalow benefits from replacement uPVC double-glazed windows and oil fired central heating.
The bungalow is set centrally in its plot, which measures approximately 156' by 60' (47.7m x 18.2m) overall. It is screened from the road by a tall hedge and the front garden is laid to lawn with ornamental trees and shrubs. The tarmac driveway provides good off-street parking and leads to the attached garage.
There is access to either side of the bungalow leading to the rear garden which is some 45' (13.8m) in depth. A terraced patio adjoins the rear of the bungalow with steps down to the lawn. There are ornamental trees and shrubs and a timber garden shed. There is also an integral store below Bedroom 3.
There is a very pleasant outlook to the east across wooded meadowland to countryside beyond.
