Full description

Individual detached bungalows of a substantial size in a quiet village location are continually in demand, it is therefore with delight that Wright Marshall estate agents offer to the market this excellent property that fits all of the above criteria. The present owner has lived in the house for 31 years and it is a much treasured home. It has been adapted and modernised through the years and has further potential to be changed and stylised to a modern purchaser's individual requirements. It also has the benefit of standing in excellent private well stocked gardens and having ample off road parking and a double garage.

At ground floor level a good sized entrance hall leads to a very spacious living room that has a large window overlooking the garden. The dining room runs open plan into a very well fitted Clive Christian kitchen, there is also a separate utility room.

In terms of bedrooms that have Strachan fitted wardrobes, at ground floor level there are presently two, both of which are large doubles. Due to the fact that the property is a bungalow these bedrooms could easily be used for alternative purposes if required.

At first floor level there is a further double bedroom that has an en suite facility and an L-shaped fourth bedroom/study. In total the accommodation accumulates to approximately 1600 sq ft.

The author is of the opinion that this would be a perfect property in which to downsize as the rooms are large and the plot particularly secluded, it also lies within walking distance of the village shop and parish church. Alternatively the bungalow could make an excellent and adaptable family home with the potential to impose modern design concepts and lifestyle ideas. It is offered to the market with no ongoing chain and viewing is essential.
