The Property
Built in 1967 as part of the nearby Arches Farm, this detached bungalow has considerable scope for enlargement or redevelopment to a two storey home, subject to obtaining the necessary consent. It lies on the semi-rural southern edge of the town, close to excellent country walks, and a convenient walk to the town centre. There is ample driveway parking and space to build a new garage if the existing one was incorporated into the living accommodation.

The Accommodation
The front door leads into a lobby with a further door into the dual aspect kitchen, which has a range of units, a linen cupboard, pantry and a utility cupboard with plumbing for the washing machine. A door leads off to dual aspect sitting/dining room with an open fireplace and a door into the garden. The inner hall has a useful storage cupboard and a ladder providing access to the loft, with good ceiling height, housing the pressurised hot water cylinder. The main bedroom overlooks the garden and has a large en suite bathroom with separate shower and electric under floor heating. There are two further bedrooms, one front and one rear, while the family bathroom has a shower over the bath.

Outside
A tarmac drive leads from the road to a parking and turning area for numerous cars. The garage houses the Grant oil fired boiler and has a screened oil tank adjacent. The level garden is mainly laid to lawn and enclosed by fencing and mature hedges.

General
Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected. The oil boiler is in the garage. Council Tax band E - £1,975.97 payable for 2022/23. EPC rating D - 62.
