Property Details

3 1 2
A genuinely rare opportunity to purchase a spacious detached bungalow with three double bedrooms boasting a prime location in the conservation area and just a short stroll to the town centre and all amenities. The bungalow enjoys a peaceful and private location at the top of a drive that serves just two properties and is ideally placed with country and riverside walks on the doorstep. The property was completed in September 2018 - built by a well reputed local builder and finished to an exemplary standard to provide luxury living. The bungalow benefits from gas fired under floor heating with all rooms having individual controls, double glazing in sustainable wood frame and the remainder of the ten year builders guarantee. There are television points in all of the bedrooms and each room benefits from at least one power point with a USB connection. The showers are run off the mains to enable the pressure to remain constant, a water softener has been installed and the kitchen is fitted with Neff appliances. This well presented property has been the much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers since new and is offered for sale in pristine condition. A viewing is an absolute must, not just to appreciate the interior but also the delightful garden and the surroundings.
