Full description

Gilbert Close is a highly desirable location set within the sought after village of Alpington with its school and services. The bungalow itself has been carefully extended over the years and offers family sized accommodation. The property boasts two substantial extensions; one of which created a larger master bedroom with full en-suite bathroom and further room. This whole area could however offer excellent annexe potential something hard to find in bungalow properties. The second extension greatly enhanced the living area significantly enlarging the sitting room to create dining room and a separate utility room to the original kitchen. In total there are three double bedrooms but the property could be reconfigured to create more space if desired. Externally there is a tandem double length garage. Internal viewing would be highly recommended to fully appreciate the unique layout and potential that this bungalow has to offer. No onward chain.
