ABOUT THE PROPERTY This unique and individually designed detached bungalow was built during the 1990s and is of stone built construction. It was purchased by our clients circa 2009 and they have carried out a scheme of improvements since then including re-roofing, new windows, soffits and gutters. They have also considerably modernised the house internally by updating the kitchen and bathrooms and installing wood flooring in a number of rooms.

The property is arranged largely over the ground floor level and has generous entrance halls to both the front and side. There is also a large lounge, dining room, kitchen with doors to the garden, garden room, utility room, 3 ground floor bedrooms, bathroom and downstairs wc. Upstairs there is a further double bedroom with dressing area, en-suite and also a spacious landing area. It has a gas central heating system, uPVC double glazing and modern fittings throughout.
