Message From The Seller

We love the tranquility of the garden surrounding the bungalow.  Sometimes our neighbour’s horse comes to look for an offering of grass.  Whilst on the front terrace you can relax, watch the birds, or have a BBQ and a glass of wine with friends. We also enjoy being able to collect a selection of fruit and vegetables from the garden which is a nice bonus!  The subtantial external storage areas provide great space for all of those Brocante finds!!!  Now we are older we would like to be in a town, though we will miss the views and peace we have here.


Pretty detached bungalow with outbuildings and garden of nearly half an acre.

The property benefits from versatile accommodation in a lovely setting, at the end of a long tarmac lane with several neighbours.  It was originally built in 1966 and has electric heating, double glazed windows and light  accommodation.  The heating is economical, programmable electric heating along with the wood burner. The house is well insulated, with extra insulation in the loft and the rear wall insulated and plastic clad.  For those wishing to extend there is the possibility of converting the attic space, subject to planning permission.  Viewing is highly recommended.
