The village provides a range of facilities, including a primary school, public house and garage, which has a convenience store. There is also a Co-op, cricket ground and the Trailway.

The bungalow is thought to have been built in the late 1960s/early 70s and has been a much loved and enjoyed home for eleven years. During this time it has been very well cared for and offers comfortable living spaces with scope to add your own personal touches. The sitting room has plenty of space for a dining table and chairs plus double doors that open into the conservatory, which could also double up as a dining room. The kitchen is fitted with a range of country style units and the shower room is fitted with a modern suite. Outside, there is a delightful rear garden, that boasts a private and sunny aspect backing onto the village's recreational grounds and takes in a view of Hambledon Hill. The front aspect also has a pleasing outlook of wooded hillside. There is also plenty of parking for residents and guests plus a larger than average single garage with power.

Located in a sought after village, this bungalow presents a fantastic opportunity for those seeking a peaceful and semi rural lifestyle with access to amenities and main towns. An early viewing is strongly advised so as not to miss out on the opportunity to own this lovely home.
