Looking to downsize and retire but tired of being stereotyped into an old fashioned form of living? Well despair no more as this extended, modern detached bungalow could be your perfect retirement retreat.

When you first set eyes on this property you may be forgiven for thinking it's a typical sized bungalow, but looks are very much deceiving here as the large rear extension adds a whole new dimension to living and entertaining. The glazed bi-folding doors of this fantastic room makes you believe the space is even bigger than it is as they give the feeling that the garden is part of the bungalow and as such you're able to enjoy your views all year round.

Finished from front to back to a very high standard, this home is ready to move straight into, without the worry of having to complete anymore DIY jobs. The jewel in the crown must be the wonderful kitchen, wonderful because of its size and quality of units and design. Just imagine waking up switching on the coffee machine, warming yourself on the AGA before conjuring up a hearty breakfast to start the day.

Located in Runwell, Wickford, you'll only be a short drive or a pleasant stroll away from the High Street to enjoy a spot of shopping or perhaps catching the train to London to take in a show and meal.

What the Owner says:

We sincerely hope you love this home we have created and can see yourself living here soon.

Originally bought as a smaller 2 bedroom bungalow we have recently added a large extension to the rear. When designing it, it was very personal to ourselves, we tried to add a modern twist to the art-deco style we love so much.

As we feel this is a perfect home for anyone retire or looking to retire, we have tried to keep everything low maintenance so like us you can get time to enjoy life.
