Property Details

4 2 2
A great chance to purchase a four double bedroom detached family bungalow situated in about 0.2 acres of ground, enjoying a quiet cul de sac position with countryside views and close to the primary school, public house and the foot of the famous Gold Hill. This mature property has been a very much loved home to our sellers for nearly twenty years, during this time it has benefited from the addition of a conservatory, cavity wall and roof insulation as well as double glazing and heating plus a new bathroom suite. The garage has also been incorporated into the main building to provide one large double bedroom or two singles and a combined utility and shower room created from an existing bedroom. The bungalow offers comfortable, well proportioned, bright rooms, which will certainly meet the needs of many potential buyers needs and provides the opportunity to mark it with ones own stamp. A viewing is absolutely necessary to truly appreciate this home and its location, which is within easy reach of all the town's facilities.
