Property Details

2 2 1
A delightful detached bungalow with two double bedrooms, presented to the market with no onward chain and offering a chance to enhance and develop to a much larger property, if required and subject to the necessary permissions. The property is ideally located just a short walk to the local Co-op store, primary school and mainline train station. There is also a village shop with post office and various social clubs and groups. We believe that the bungalow dates to before the second world war and has been a much loved and enjoyed home for the last fifteen years. During this time it has been well maintained and improved with some new double glazing, new oil tank and a complete replacement kitchen. The bungalow offers bright well proportioned accommodation with the option to update or enjoy as is.
