Description 45 High Street is a spacious detached bungalow with brick elevations under a tiled roof. The accommodation is well laid out with three reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room, three good-sized double bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate shower room. During the current vendor's tenure, the property has undergone a schedule of refurbishment and remodelling, including adding the extension to the front to create a large sunroom, which offers flexible use as a family room or office.

The property also benefits from UPVC double-glazing throughout, gas-fired central heating and solar panels (which were installed by the current vendor and benefit from a feed-in tariff of 6.7p per kWh).
