Prospective buyers will be delighted to learn that the seller has recently acquired an additional 20 sq. meters of land adjoining the driveway. This strategic expansion has transformed the existing two-car driveway into a spacious parking area capable of accommodating up to three cars. This recent initiative has significantly enhanced the property by providing a valuable asset in the form of extra parking space.

This exceptional property offers a spacious and adaptable layout, including a self-contained one-bedroom annexe.

The annexe is a fantastic option for those with dual occupancy requirements and offers earning potential if let out. The seller has informed us that previous tenants have paid from £800 - £1,000 per calendar month.

The bungalow has been extremely well-maintained, with light and airy rooms and superb wraparound gardens, which enjoy complete privacy and seclusion. The gardens are bordered by a delightful stream with woodland beyond, affording quality outside space with a peaceful rural backdrop teeming with wildlife.

Planning permission for a single-storey extension to expand the living room has been approved. Application reference: 23/0005/HOU.
