This semi detached bungalow sits in an elevated residential location with wonderful views to the front about half a mile from the centre of the town. The property has recently undergone a programme of improvements which includes a new Wren kitchen, re-fitted shower room and w.c., new uPVC fascia boards, downpipes and guttering, new carpets, new loft hatch with ladder, increased external lighting and external power sockets, new mains connected smoke alarms and much more. In addition, planning permission exists for the re-configuration of rooms to include extending the accommodation into the garage and to create a new parking area at the front (if desired). The accommodation comprises two bedrooms, shower room with w.c. and additional separate w.c., spacious lounge/dining room and kitchen. At the back of the bungalow is a level garden, driveway parking and a garage. The property benefits from double glazing, gas central heating and cavity wall insulation. Additional space behind the garage may offer an opportunity for enlarging the property if desired as well as the potential for a loft conversion. All of this is of course, subject to the usual consents.
