THE EXTENT OF THE WORKS Make no mistake - this full renovation and remodel has created a stunning home ready-to-move into. The project has received considerable investment. It has been a substantial undertaking and much credit has to be given to the sellers.
This is a beautiful and spacious bungalow, and the comprehensive renovation completed in 2021 includes new windows and doors throughout, some having high quality "Ecowood" fine grain thermal Venetian blinds. All old plumbing and electrical wiring has been removed and replaced with new. In summary, new plumbing and central heating and boiler, new electrics and additional sockets for modern living throughout. New carpentry, with all wood-work replaced. Building work includes a coat/boot entrance and kitchen extension area. A remodelled kitchen/diner and the addition of a snug. A beautiful master suite has been created with ensuite and separate dressing room.
The extensive renovations have included a new red Marley tile roof which has been reinsulated. There is new insulated plaster board throughout which has then been re-plastered and then professionally decorated in a simple pallet of white and Egyptian cotton which gives this home a Scandinavian feel.
High quality and hard-wearing light Oak timber effect "Livyn" vinyl flooring with a 30-year guarantee has been laid throughout the whole property. It has created a stylish uniformity that adds to the ambience.
THE SETTING The home being surrounded by greenery looks over the Shropshire Union Canal and beyond to the Grosvenor estate farm land that adds to the tranquillity and easy living vibe. The cul-de-sac location means no through traffic so is tranquil and secure. The perfect lock up and leave for anyone with a second home.
