There's a handy built in cupboard in the corner and doors lead off to the bedrooms and shower room. Fully glazed double doors signal the entrance to the living space.

  • Lounge Diner

    8m x 5.5m (44 sqm) - 26' 2" x 18' (473 sqft)

    This enormous "L" shaped room lends itself to easy zoning with the dining end opposite the kitchen, and the wider section for comfortable seating. A stone built fireplace lines the interior wall (although you'll need to install a fire) and is the focal point for the placement of furniture. Behind is a lovely bay window giving views over the generous front garden and onto the quiet street beyond. The light floods in through the triple aspect glazing.

  • Front Garden

    10m x 13.8m (138 sqm) - 32' 9" x 45' 3" (1485 sqft)

    The front garden is a generous size and has a lawn with pretty borders and a hard paved area to one side incorporating a secure anchor point for a trailer. The driveway and carport with its colourful slabs will comfortably hold four vehicles. A door from the carport opens onto a garden path which leads down the side of the bungalow and into the rear garden. A garden gate to the front means this side access is completely enclosed. It is both private and secure.

  • Rear Garden

    10.5m x 13.8m (144.9 sqm) - 34' 5" x 45' 3" (1559 sqft)

There's plenty of storage too with a good sized garden shed, a larger Summer House and a greenhouse tucked away in the corner. It's a nice spot to while away the hours with hoe or rake, or rather bunk off with coffee and the papers on the patio instead.
