Property Details

3 1 1
This well presented detached bungalow is presented to the market with no onward chain. The property is situated in a quiet cul de sac of other similar properties and is a short level walk via the nearby footpath to the centre of this sought after and well served village. The village boasts a primary school, local shop with tea room and post office, doctors surgery, public houses, garden centre and organic farm shop. The village has an active community with many events centred around the village hall and community centre, ranging from WI, Badminton Club and Drama Group to toddler groups, Gardeners Club and flower arranging. We believe that the property was built in the mid 1970's and has been a very much loved home for about twenty years. The bungalow benefits from uPVC double glazing throughout, has gas fired central heating via radiators and offers comfortable living as is, but also has the opportunity to mark it with one's own stamp, if desired. An early viewing is strongly advised to fully appreciate the size of this lovely home and its environment.
