Full description

A substantial two/three bedroomed detached bungalow in the ever popular West Leicestershire district of Kirby Muxloe. Ideal for those downsizing from a larger property. The property offers versatile accommodation with plenty of scope for further extension by virtue of the width of plot. Clean and tidy and well presented throughout, yet in need of a bit of updating and modernising, but in general terms easy to move into and start living. There is UPVC double glazing and a gas central heating system with replacement boiler. The well proportioned accommodation is centred around a reception hall with storm porch, pleasant lounge with patio doors over looking the rear garden. Fitted kitchen, three bedrooms, one currently set up as a dining room, shower room and then a large garden room with access to the garage, WC and store and patio doors to the rear garden. Single garage and pleasant private mature gardens complete what is considered an excellent example of a quality bungalow.
