We believe that the bungalow was built around 1930: many original features remain including picture rails in most rooms and period doors. All windows are now uPVC double glazed, replaced around 2003/4. An electric check was carried out in October 2018. A certificate is available. Soffits and fascias have also been replaced with uPVC for ease of maintenance.
