Why buy this home?
The location of this property is a key selling factor as you have everything that you might need within walking distance, making it ideal for someone who does not drive. The High Street can be reached in approximately ten minutes on foot and there is both a doctor’s surgery and a dentist even closer. As well as a great location, it also offers spacious rooms and a private rear garden.
All the accommodation is accessed via a central entrance hall that has two storage cupboards and internal access to the garage.
At the end of the entrance hall is the kitchen/breakfast room in which you can fit a four-seater dining table, ideal for quick meals or to enjoy a cup of tea while reading the newspaper. There is more than enough storage as well as space for an under-counter fridge, an under-counter freezer, and a freestanding oven.
Following on from the kitchen, is a shower room with a shower cubicle, a toilet, and wash hand basin. There is also plumbing for a washing machine, making it a multi-functional room. The addition of this shower room could make life a lot simpler for people with mobility issues.
The living room has laminate flooring and is decorated in a neutral colour, allowing you to put your own stamp on it. There are a set of French doors that lead out to the garden room which also allow natural light to flow in, creating a light and airy atmosphere. A log burning stove is a nice addition to the room and gives you something to sit in front of, watching the flames flicker, during the colder months.
Measuring 19ft in width, the impressive garden room faces east allowing you to enjoy your morning coffee in the sunshine. Originally built as a conservatory, the roof has now been changed to tiles, allowing you to use this room all year round without it being too hot or too cold. It could also double as a dining room when you are having larger family gatherings so that everyone can be together.
A spacious main bedroom is at the front of the property, and it has two fitted wardrobes. There is ample room for your furniture and space to add a dressing area.
The second bedroom is also a comfortable double bedroom so this could be used as the main bedroom if you preferred not to sleep at the front of the property. Alternatively, it would be a lovely guest room for when any family members come to stay.
In addition to the shower room, there is also a well-presented bathroom, great for someone who enjoys a relaxing soak in the bath. It is fitted with a bath, a toilet, and a wash hand basin with vanity storage.
The garage is currently used for storage and has a set of swing doors leading to the driveway as well as a side door that leads to the rear garden. As the garage is integral it could be converted to create further living space or another bedroom should you require it.
As the rear garden backs on to other bungalows, it is extremely private. It is a good size, has a newly laid patio and an array of mature flower beds for you to add your own splash of colour.
There is driveway parking at the front of the property with the ability to create more if needed by landscaping the front garden adjacent to it.
