Overall Description

This detached bungalow was considerably extended to the rear in the mid seventies and has much potential for further extension and improvement to create a large family home in this desirable location close to excellent schools and other amenities. The property currently has three bedrooms a bathroom and separate cloakroom, but the large loft space would appear to offer scope for adding to this should you wish to create a larger family home (subject to the usual consents), something that the plot and location certainly justify. In terms of receptions there is a large sitting room that leads into a good-sized conservatory, with a separate kitchen/dining room although it might be that the new owners decide to change the layout to create a nice modern kitchen/dining family space to the rear, which is certainly a possibility. The bungalow sits well back from the road in a large plot (around a third of an acre) with its own private drive, large detached garage and plenty of room for more parking should you wish. In summary, if you are looking for the opportunity to create your dream long-term family home then a viewing is highly recommended. The property is being sold by Informal Tender with a Guide Price of £525,000 to £550,000 and no onward chain. The deadline for "Best and Final" bids is 12 noon on Wednesday the 9th of December. We have a Viewing Afternoon from 1pm on Saturday the 28th of November and a further Viewing Morning from 10am on Saturday the 5th of December - so please call to book your viewing slot.
