- Potential To Convert To 3 Bedrooms
Take advantage of this rare opportunity to buy a corner plot bungalow with two double bedrooms and a low maintenance garden, in the quiet and picturesque village of Rickinghall.
Why buy this home?
Turning into Wheatfields Close you can hardly see this home as it is perfectly tucked away from the road. Occupying a corner plot, this bungalow has a lot of outdoor space on both the front and the back of the property.
Being set back from the road not only offers privacy and a useable front garden, it also provides off-road parking for at least three vehicles. The bungalow also has a large garage which if you did not want to use it for cars, storage or a workshop, could easily be converted into additional living space as it is attached to the bungalow.
Stepping through the front door leads to a small porch area where jackets and shoes can be stored with ease. Continuing through the porch you enter into the spacious main living area that works as the centre of the home. There is plenty of room for numerous sofas and chairs to be arranged in a sociable manner whilst also maintaining space for a dining table.
Through the door to the right of the living room is the kitchen which has all been refitted within the last 5 years to a very good standard. There is ample work top space, an electric hob and oven with extractor hood, as well space for an under counter appliance.
If you continue on through the kitchen you reach the conservatory, a brilliant room to watch the world go by from. It is well insulated and so maintains its temperature very well through the colder months allowing you to utilise the space year round. There is plenty of space here for a number seats and the space could even be used as a dining area if you would prefer more seating in the lounge.
From here you can access the rear garden which is mostly laid to gravel, has a number of lovely trees, flower beds and a gooseberry bush. There is also a sizeable garden shed to store all of you garden equipment. From here there is also a side gate that takes you back to the front garden.
If you did choose to turn the current garage into further living space you certainly have the space to build a new garage in the front garden if you so wish (STPP).
Heading back into the living room and taking the door on your left will take you through to the small hallway that accesses both bedrooms and the bathroom. The bathroom has been refitted within the last 5 years with tiled floors and walls and a large modern shower.
Right next to the bathroom is bedroom 2, which can comfortably house a double bed whilst maintaining space for wardrobes. The loft access is from this room also.
Next to this, is the main bedroom which is sizeably bigger than bedroom 2 with space for a large double bed and bedside tables on either side. The room features a large widow that gives the room great natural light when the curtains are open.
Offered with no upper chain, this really is an opportunity to acquire a rare property on an enviable plot within walking distance to the village pub.
