Property Details

2 2 1
A rare chance to purchase a detached bungalow with two double bedrooms, set in grounds of about 0.20 of an acre with an additional parcel of land, again about 0.20 acres and lying in a tranquil no through lane and within easy access to the town centre and mainline train station. We believe that the bungalow dates to the 1950s and has been the very much cherished and enjoyed home to our seller for forty one years. During this time it has been well cared for and is offered for sale in good order benefitting from oil fired central heating and double glazing. The bungalow provides comfortable well proportioned accommodation in excess of 1100 square feet (108 sq. m) with the option to further enhance, as and when or if desired. There is the choice of developing into the loft space subject to the necessary permissions or perhaps linking the workshop to the main property amongst other options, subject to permissions. A viewing is essential not just to appreciate the size and layout, but also its location overlooking fields and the historic site of what was Kings Court Palace, which was a royal hunting lodge used by King John. This site is listed as a protected monument. An early viewing is strongly recommended to avoid missing out on the chance to own this lovely home.
