Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This charming one-bedroom bungalow comprises a large bright lounge, kitchen, double bedroom, hall and a shower-room. Built around 1900, this delightful, traditionally-built semi-detached home offers cosy accommodation extending to approximately 47 sqm.  

This property would be suitable for first time buyers or those wanting to live on the level and close to local amenities in the popular town of Alva. Its character and proximity to all local facilities make this an exciting option to purchase.

Decorated in tasteful tones throughout and fitted with neutral carpets in all rooms, this property exudes original charm and character.

The property is entered into a spacious hall which leads to all rooms. To the left is a bright lounge, drawing in plenty of light from its front and rear-facing windows and neutral colours reflect the daylight. The room benefits from a gas fireplace with a stylish stone hearth and wood surround. Decorative coving and a built-in cupboard / press add to the homely character of this room.

From the hall to the right is a double bedroom with built-in furniture and cupboard space. The room is kept in neutral shades, making this an ideal place to relax and sleep in.

The hall leads further to the rear of the house where the kitchen is fitted with white wall and floor units, complete with laminate worktops and part-tiled splashbacks. The kitchen includes a fridge and a freezer, an electric grill, gas oven and gas hob. A washing machine is also included in the sale.

The shower-room features a white suite including a fully tiled shower enclosure with electric shower, hand-basin and WC. 

Warmth is provided by a regularly serviced gas central heating system powered by a Vokera boiler and the property is double-glazed throughout.

To the rear of the house is a private garden allowing views towards the Ochil Hills. The garden is mainly laid to lawn bordered with shrubs, bushes and trees. At the rear of the house is also a wooden garage and parking for several cars on a gravelled drive.

The town of Alva lies at the foot of the Ochil Hills and provides a good range of local amenities including a post office, several grocery stores, fast food outlets, restaurants and banks. Alva Primary School and Alva Academy provide both primary and secondary schooling. There is a regular bus service to Alloa and Stirling. Access to the main motorway links is only a short drive away.
