Full description

Boasting a rural and private but not isolated location is this lovely detached bungalow offering good sized internal accommodation of around 1750 sq.ft/182 sq.m and outdoor space with countless uses. The property was built in the 1950’s and has been our sellers’ family home for in excess of forty years. During their time in residence the bungalow has been maintained and improved to a very high standard with oil fired central heating and double glazing and still offers the potential, if required and subject to approval, to extend further in to the large loft space. Outside, the workshop and stables easily lend themselves to development and provide a business opportunity convert to holiday chalets, storage units or even to home a dependent relative – again subject to the necessary permissions. The property enjoys formal gardens extending to about 1.5 acres and a paddock with separate entrance, which again offers flexibility as to own usage or to rent out. If you need endless options, this property is one that certainly merits a viewing to see how it could meet one’s needs.
