Don’t just do a drive-by on what would appear to be a traditional semi-detached dormer bungalow – but call for a brochure or look on our website and check our floor plan – you will see what we measured and realise why you should come inside and view this truly imaginative home that the present owners have created.
Standing on a large corner plot at the head of a quiet cul-de-sac the property benefits from level parking to the front and extensive private gardens with open views to the rear. Those that step inside will we think be surprised and delighted by the flexible well balanced living space on offer with the four bedrooms and two bathrooms being complemented by the living rooms and the fitted kitchen, with the excellent utility/hobby room, family room and entertainment room completing the picture – an early appointment to view is highly recommended.
