Property Details

3 2 2
A bright and roomy detached family bungalow with three good sized bedrooms, enjoying a peaceful location towards the end of a cul de sac and within walking distance to the centre of this sought after and desirable village. We believe that the property was built in the 1980s and has been a very much loved home to our sellers for the last fourteen years. During this time it has been improved with the addition of conservatory with underfloor heating, new uPVC double glazed windows and the bathroom suite was replaced about three years ago and now benefits from underfloor heating as well. The property offers an easy to use layout with comfortable accommodation that will certainly meet a great many potential purchasers needs and must be viewed internally to really appreciate just what this home has to offer as well as its location with the main village high street just a short walk away where there is a post office/stores with tea room. A little further on there is the village hall, doctor surgery and primary school. The village also boasts two public houses and garden centre with an organic farm shop, art gallery and cafe.
