Built in 1973 the bungalow was altered in the mid 1980's to provide first floor living space but would now benefit from a scheme of modernisation and improvement throughout to update the fixtures and fittings to modern standards. There is also the potential for alteration of the loft and garage space to provide further living space, subject to planning consent.
The front door leads to a large L-shaped hallway. This gives access to the sitting room, dining room and ground floor bedrooms. The substantial sitting room has a large picture window from which there is an open outlook over the front garden to farmland beyond. A further door leads to the kitchen which has a range of fitted units with space for slot in cooker, beyond this is a utility room with space for appliances and a door to the rear garden. An arch way leads from the kitchen to the separate dining room and these two rooms would lend themselves ideally to being combined to create one large open plan kitchen diner with double doors to the patio area.
At the other end of the ground floor are two double bedrooms and a bathroom. Further living space is found on the first floor where there are two further bedrooms and a shower room. There is additional loft space which has not yet been converted and therefore there is potential for further bedroom space subject to the necessary planning consents. The property also benefits form an integral garage with door leading in to the main body of the bungalow.
A small lawned area is found to the front of the property together with off road parking. However the majority of the garden is found to the rear. A substantial lawned area is interspersed with flower beds and borders which are host to an interesting range of trees and shrubs as well as a vegetable area with raspberry canes. In addition there is a greenhouse and garden shed.
The fabulous location on the edge of a lovely village
