About 9 Long Moor Lane
This unique and individual detached bungalow sits within a 0.75 acre plot in a little known rural location. It is surrounded by pleasant open countryside with rural views to the front and rear. We understand that the bungalow was originally built in the in 1950s as the gardener’s cottage for the Hampsons Roses and is offered for sale on the open market for the very first time.

The bungalow features brick and rendered outer walls under a pitched slate roof. It is generally well maintained and presented but we anticipate that the successful purchaser will look to redesign and extend the property to their own tastes – subject to the necessary consents being obtained.

It currently features a front entrance hall with lounge to the front of the house and kitchen at the rear. There are also 2 double bedrooms, 1 single bedroom and a bathroom on the ground floor – one of the bedrooms is currently used as a second reception room. In the attic space there are 2 further rooms which are currently accessible by a retractable ladder.

The property benefits from an oil fired central heating system and uPVC double glazed windows. We understand that it is connected to mains electricity, water sewers. There is no gas supply. A now disconnected septic tank is located behind the garage.

Externally, there is a driveway from Long Moor Lane leading down the side of the bungalow to the garage. Directly in front of the bungalow is a pleasant garden area and there is a further garden area and veg plot at the rear. Beyond this are 2 small grassed paddocks beyond.

Opportunities to purchase properties of this type and location are exceptionally rare and viewing is strongly recommended.
