Overall Description

This is a substantial detached property, set in an elevated position, with double garage built underneath the main bungalow, and pleasant aspect to the front from the conservatory that was added directly above. The property has a large open-plan living area sub-divided into a dining area, sitting room and the conservatory which is south facing so provides plenty of light into the reception rooms. There is a kitchen/dining room with door out to the patio to the rear and entrance hall with cloakroom. Both of the double bedrooms have high quality built-in wardrobe units and en-suites which have been recently modernised to a very high standard. The large loft has obvious potential for conversion into further bedrooms and bathrooms if so desired. There is access on both sides of the property to the back garden which has a central lawn leading from the patio to a further gravel seating area to catch the evening sun. The property is being sold with no on-going chain.
