Full description


Set in 1 acre of gardens is this mid 1950s three bedroom detached bungalow in need of general modernisation benefiting from uPVC double glazing, gas fired central heating, off-road parking, various store rooms and a garage.   A viewing comes highly recommended to fully appreciate all that this property has to offer.  

Set in an acre of gardens is this mid 1950s three bedroom detached bungalow situated in a tucked away position in a semi-rural location yet within a 1/4 of a mile of the popular village of Oake with its various amenities.  

Tollywood was built in 1955 and further extended in the mid 1980s with the current client having been in occupation for just over 30 years.  

Whilst the property benefits from uPVC double glazing, gas fired central heating and  the addition of a wood burning stove, the overall accommodation is now in need of refurbishment providing an ideal opportunity for an incoming purchaser to personalise the property to their own needs, and given the size of the plot which equates to an acre there are many opportunities in terms of extending the property subject to any necessary planning consents.  Therefore a visit to Tollywood comes high recommended to fully appreciate not only its potential but its surroundings.

The accommodation comprises in brief, a uPVC double glazed front door leads through to the entrance lobby and in turn to the inner hallway.  The sitting room has a uPVC double glazed bay window, a log burner inset into a brick fireplace with book shelves to either side and twin doors opening through to the kitchen/dining room.  

The kitchen/dining room which is also accessible from the main hallway is open plan in concept yet with two distinct areas and an archway diving the two rooms.  The kitchen comprises a range of wall and base units with contrasting work surfaces, a built-in gas hob, double oven and space for a fridge with two uPVC double glazed windows overlooking the impressive rear garden.  The dining room provides ample space for a table and chairs and can easily be seen how this becomes the social hub of the family home with doors leading through to the sitting room and external patio doors leading out to the rear garden.  

The rear lobby provides access to a range of rooms to include a cloakroom, two full length larders, a utility with an external door to the rear side of the property and a further access point to the garden room with power and lighting and twin doors opening out onto the garden. 

There are 3 bedrooms with a range of built-in bedroom furniture with the master bedroom located to the rear of the property with access through to a dressing room with a range of built-in wardrobes and shelving and access to the en-suite bathroom with hand wash basin and bath with tiled surround .  

The second bedroom has a lovely dual aspect to the front and side elevation, and complementing the bedrooms is the shower room.

Outside, to the front there is an iron gate leading through to the driveway providing off-road parking for several vehicles and a detached single garage which has power and lighting.  There are a range of outbuildings, one of which measures 28’10 x 15’1 with a further six timber storage sheds and a useful greenhouse.  

The front garden is predominantly laid to lawn which sweeps around to the right hand side of the property and in turn to the rear garden which is extensive in size predominantly laid to lawn with a range of mature shrubs and trees to include a small orchard with mature shrub and tree boundaries enjoying a high degree of privacy.
