General information

General information Set back from the road and approached via a long driveway, is this 1950's four bedroom detached bungalow which is being offered for sale for the first time since new. The bungalow has been extended under a flat roof and now requires a degree of modernisation and affords the opportunity to either extend or create additional floor space within the roof.

Due to the position of the property within the village envelope and the wide entrance there is the potential to apply for planning permission to create additional dwellings within the grounds or alternatively demolish the existing property and with some clever design, create a residential opportunity for additional dwellings.

No planning application has been made however a local architect previously prepared a scheme to demonstrate how three or four dwellings could be accommodated on the site, subject to a formal planning application and the granting of an appropriate consent.

The existing property comprises of an entrance porch, entrance hall, sitting room, cloakroom, bathroom, kitchen/dining room and two bedrooms. There is a flat-roofed rear extension with two further bedrooms. The property has original Crittall windows, oil-fired central heating and requires general updating to bring it in line with modern standards. It has the potential to be extended or convert the roof space to create a chalet style property.
