Description - Russets is a detached modern bungalow in a non estate location and one of only two properties built in the grounds of the cottage facing Lowgate Street, some years ago. Orientated to take advantage of the south facing rear, the well planned layout includes three sizeable bedrooms, the master bedroom complete with en suite shower room. A large main reception is designed to provide both sitting and dining areas and the double aspect social kitchen comfortably accommodates a table and chairs. A winding hallway illustrates well the size of the interior and acts as a hub to the various rooms in addition to incorporating a sizeable airing cupboard and access to the not insignificant roof space. A cloakroom is included, conveniently by the back door in addition to a useful utility room and the garden includes not only a garage but cedar greenhouse and small summerhouse. The bungalow will benefit from certain refurbishment but windows have been replaced with PVCu double glazed units. This is a rarity given the accommodation on offer and the position it occupies being much closer to the town centre than those properties off Castleton Way or Victoria Hill.
