Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Offered for sale with no forward chain, a rarely available bungalow in the heart of the beautiful Wilmcote village.

Available for the first time in over 30 years this well proportioned two double bedroom bungalow is being offered for sale with no forward chain. Backing onto open fields in this secluded, no through road, the property benefits from an extended garage, two driveways and a spacious living room which takes full advantage of the open fields beyond. Whilst the home has been very well maintained and has double glazing, loft insulation and a replacement consumer unit, it does offer the lucky purchaser the opportunity to complete the home to their own specification. There is also potential; subject to the usual planning permissions, to extend the bungalow to the side or into the roof space as some of the bungalows in this location have already done.

Wilmcote is popular village location just off the A3400 between the market towns of Stratford-upon-Avon (4 miles) and Henley-in-Arden (6 miles). The village enjoys excellent local amenities including a shop, well regarded primary school, two good inns and includes the historic Mary Arden's house, the childhood home of Shakespeare's mother. There is also a railway station with regular services to Stratford, Birmingham and London Marylebone, whilst the M40 (junction 15) is some 7 miles distant. Stratford-upon-Avon provides more comprehensive amenities, with many larger centres including Warwick, Leamington Spa, Worcester and Solihull are easily accessible.
