WONDERFUL RURAL SETTING, PADDOCK AND FABULOUS OUTBUILDINGS! Substantial detached 3 bedroom bungalow with nearly three acres plus two small copses. Recently built timber double garage and barn plus other outbuildings Only available to those currently or previously employed in agriculture or forestry. EPC D-58

A very rare opportunity arises to purchase a substantial detached bungalow with nearly three acres including an enclosed paddock which borders the road with a five bar gate, approximately half an acre of woodland a second small copse. The light and appealing bungalow has UPVC double glazed windows; is warmed by a Clearview multi fuel stove and comprises a wide entrance hallway leading to two super double bedrooms which are serviced by a smart bathroom. The large open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area is centrally arranged in the home with the handsome stove acting as the focal point of the room; cottage style kitchen including a large pine dresser and plenty of sunshine all day from the double aspect windows. A handy utility room is set to the other end of the property with a useful cloakroom and double bedroom three (which would also provide an ideal home office or craft room). The bungalow is set well back from this quiet no-through lane with beautifully planted front gardens. The owners had constructed two superb timber outbuildings approximately three years ago - a fabulous double garage and large barn/workshop - every husband's (and quite a few wife's) dream! Further buildings include a long corrugated metal barn which is split into four sections, shed and polytunnel. The current owners have developed productive vegetable beds to the side and rear of the property and have said it's the best soil they've ever had! The bungalow backs onto farmland giving a wonderfully open feel and is set on the rural outskirts of this ever popular village. PLEASE NOTE. THE PROPERTY IS SUBJECT TO AN AGRICULTURAL RESTRICTION (see agent's notes).
