Property Details

2 1 1
A marvellous opportunity to purchase a two double bedroom, detached bungalow that is in need of some general updating, presented to the market with the bonus of no onward chain and enjoying a good sized corner plot, which boasts a high degree of privacy and a sunny aspect. The property is located in a quiet cul de sac of other similar properties and within a short level walk to the town centre and railway station as well as close to some fabulous country and riverside walks. We believe that the bungalow was built in the 1950s and has been a much loved and enjoyed home to the selling family for about twenty five years. During this time it has been re-wired, some new economy 7 heaters fitted plus a new hot water cylinder. The property also benefits from uPVC double glazing plus cavity wall and loft insulation that was installed under the free government initiative. This delightful home provides comfortable accommodation, as is, with the chance to update over time and to one's own taste. The property must be viewed to truly appreciate what this home has to offer both inside and outside and it is strongly recommended that an early viewing is taken, so that the opportunity to purchase this home is not lost.
