Property Details

2 1 1
A wonderful chance to purchase a two double bedroom detached bungalow sitting in grounds amounting to about a third of an acre, and presented to the market with the bonus of no onward chain. The property offers bright, well laid out spacious accommodation of about 1115 square feet (103 sq. m.) and enjoys a pleasant location in a country lane opposite the village church and within walking distance to the public house and small shop, which provides every day essentials. A little further on at Bourton there is a petrol station with attached shop with further facilities in Mere and Gillingham, which has a mainline train station. The bungalow was built in the 1960s and has been the very much cherished and enjoyed home of our seller for thirty eight years. During this time it has been well maintained benefitting from uPVC double glazing and oil fired central heating. This lovely home offers comfortable living with the option to update, as and when or if required. There is also scope to incorporate the workshop into the main accommodation or re-instate as a garage and plenty of room to extend, subject to the necessary permissions. A viewing is imperative to truly appreciate the property, the grounds and how easily it would satisfy many potential buyers' requirements. An early viewing is strongly recommended to avoid missing out on the opportunity to own this great property.
