Property Details

2 1 1
OFFERED WITH NO ONWARD CHAIN * UNIQUE DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY * NO THROUGH ROAD POSITION * VIEWING ESSENTIAL TO APPRECIATE THE PROPERTY. An individual detached bungalow presented for sale with no onward chain and a range of outbuildings benefiting from business usage. The property is located on the edge of the town in a quiet no through lane with views over the river and fields from the garden and is within easy walking distance of local facilities which include a Coop convenience store, hairdressers, fish and chip shop and wine bar with restaurant. The town is also within walking distance and the countryside is on the door step. We believe that the property dates to the early 1980's and was built by the selling family for their own occupation. During this time the bungalow has been well maintained and offers well proportioned internal accommodation with an easy to use layout that benefits from uPVC double glazing and oil fired central heating via radiators. Outside, there is plenty of space for cars, boats or caravans with the outbuilding, which do need some remedial work, providing an ideal space for trades people needing workshops or storage or perhaps to convert to an annexe, subject to permissions, if required. A viewing is vital to really appreciate just what this home and outside space has to offer the next potential buyer.
