Property Details

A bright and well proportioned detached bungalow with two/three bedrooms, offered for sale with no onward chain and situated in a quiet cul de sac of other similar properties. The property is located on the fringe of the town, just a short walk to some fabulous countryside and a village pub that serves food. The town centre is about a ten to fifteen minute walk and caters well for everyday needs, boasting a Co-op store, post office, electrical shop, chemist, dentist surgery and primary school. There is also a doctor's surgery, fire station, library and museum plus public houses. We believe that the property was built in the mid 1960s and has been the very much cherished and enjoyed home for the last thirty five years of the selling family. During this time it has been well maintained and benefits from the addition of a conservatory to the rear and a combination gas fired central heating boiler was installed about two years ago. The property also has uPVC double glazing. This lovely home provides comfortable accommodation with the scope to update, as and when and if required. A viewing is essential to truly appreciate this wonderful home, not just for the inside space but also the delightful gardens and its tranquil position. An early viewing is strongly urged.
