Description A detached true bungalow, nestled within a quiet setting in the heart of the sought after market town of Kirkby Lonsdale. Offering two double bedrooms, shower room and kitchen/diner, as well as two reception rooms. Built in 1950s and now in need of some updating, this bungalow has ample potential for a new buyer to transform into their ideal home.

Set within a large plot, 13 Ruskin Drive enjoys a pretty front garden with lawn and planted borders, a large driveway for several vehicles and a garage that offers additional parking and storage, seldom found within this popular market town. For those in search of a forever home for family or retirement, this may just be the one for you.

Property Overview Welcome to this wonderful true bungalow, now ready for a new buyer to put their own stamp on it. Step through the door into the porch, the ideal spot for storing coats and shoes and into the light and spacious hallway, providing access into the living spaces.

Firstly, you are guided into the bedrooms and shower room. Bedroom two is a double room with front aspect window whilst bedroom one overlooks the rear garden, a generous double with ample space for additional furniture. A pull-down ladder in the hallway provides access to a third ‘loft bedroom’ with a gable window and a large storage room. A full loft conversion could create a fantastic space with amazing views (subject to planning consents).

The shower room is a spacious room, now in need of updating comprising a shower, pedestal sink, W.C. and bidet with part-tiled walls and towel rail. A handy airing cupboard provides additional storage for towels and other essentials.

Back into the hallway, you are welcomed into the living room; a light and bright space with large front aspect bay window overlooking the front garden. Follow the living room into the dining area, a great space to enjoy meals with the family where the space flows effortlessly into the kitchen which is well fitted with wall and base units, complementary work top and tiled splash back and one and a half stainless steel sink with drainer. There is also space for a cooker, washing machine and freestanding fridge freezer, as well as a small dining table if desired. Dual aspect windows to the side and rear allow plenty of light to flow through.

Finally, the dining room adjoins the sun room, a great space with ample potential as a second sitting room, home office or utility with door leading onto the drive and a handy cloaks area with W.C. and pedestal sink.

All in all, this is a generous home oozing with potential, now ready for a new purchaser to really make their own!
