Property Details

3 2 2
A bright and roomy detached bungalow sitting in grounds of about 0.25 acres, boasting some wonderful rural views and three good sized bedrooms. The property occupies a lane side position in the small village of Yenston, which is just under a mile from Templecombe where there is a mainline train station, primary school and Co-op shop. We believe that the property was built in the early 1960s and has been home to our seller for just over four years. During this time, the bungalow has been transformed into a delightful modern home that has been extended to the front to provide a bright dining area and kitchen as well as a useful porch with utility area. A double garage has also been added with part being incorporated to the main building to form an en-suite to the main bedroom. A multi fuel burner has been fitted in the sitting room, which also offers the potential to lend part of the room to enlarge bedroom three. The electrics have been updated and new oil fired central heating boiler installed. Outside, the property has also benefited from a make-over with a large paved alfresco entertainment area to the rear and general landscaping to the rest of the gardens. This fabulous home must be viewed to see how it will meet many potential buyers requirements and its lovely location.
