Full description

DESCRIPTION Dating from the 1960's, 9 Orchard Drive is a detached bungalow, offered for sale on the open market for the first time in over 40 years. Many of the original 1960's features remain, so there is enormous potential here for buyers looking for a project or who wish to create their own style of home in a non estate location. The accommodation includes double glazing, gas central heating and loft insulation and comprises 2 double bedrooms, both with double wardrobes, a lounge with fireplace, bathroom and separate WC and a great open plan kitchen/dining/living room - very much in vogue now and way ahead of its time in the 1960's. There's also lots of storage, a rarity these days. There is obvious potential here to modernise and indeed to extend (subject to the necessary consents) to make the most of the generous level plot which also includes a garage and plenty of parking. The non estate setting is another attraction and the southerly facing garden at the rear are the icing on the cake so, all in all, we thoroughly recommend an appointment to view this absolute gem ..... which is offered for sale with no onward chain. EPC rating D.
