This extremely versatile 3/4 bedroomed detached converted bungalow would make an ideal home for purchasers in any age group. It occupies a very large yet easily maintained garden plot offering ample scope for extension.

It has been extensively modernised in recent years and now boasts a wealth of very attractive features including hardwood flooring, wide tri-fold door to a new elevated sun deck, sleek white sanitary ware and the luxury of an en suite.

Two rooms were combined and enlarged creating a stunning open plan living/dining/kitchen which is perfect for modern life. The layout (110 sqm) is extremely flexible with 4 bedrooms, a downstairs bathroom and separate shower room. Several windows have been replaced by UPVC double glazed units and extensive roof repairs carried out. The lengthy rear garden is particularly sunny and enjoys above average privacy with cellarage, an adjoining garage and drive. The property lies in Council Tax band G.
