Property Details

2 1 1
A wonderful opportunity to purchase a bright and roomy two double bedroom bungalow, presented to the market with the bonus of no onward chain and offering the potential to enhance and develop, if and when required. The bungalow is ideally located, in a quiet cul de sac of other similar properties and just a short level walk to the town's amenities. We believe that the bungalow dates to the mid 1960s and has been a very much loved and enjoyed home of our sellers for the last seven years. During this time it has been well maintained and improved with a replacement boiler, new shower and fitted wardrobes. The bungalow provides well proportioned bright rooms with an easy to use layout and offers comfortable accommodation in its current state with the option to update, as and when. There is also space, subject to the necessary permissions to add to the existing building or to develop the loft space. An early viewing is strongly recommended to avoid missing out on the chance to own this home and also to appreciate its environment and closeness to all facilities.
