Thorntons is a detached new bungalow, built of traditional style in approximately 2017 by a reputable local building firm. The property has an L-shaped design with brick walls under a pitched clay tiled roof. Since the owner's purchase in 2018, the bungalow has had cosmetic upgrades both internally and externally, including newly fitted upvc triple glazed windows and doors. The property comes with the remainder of its original 10 year insurance guarantee.


The triple glazed front door leads you in to the welcoming entrance hall with updated hard wood laminate flooring, cupboard housing the Viessmann gas central heating boiler and underfloor heating manifold. There is also access into the partly boarded loft with pull down ladder and light.

Both double bedrooms are located on the northern side of the bungalow continuing with the hard wood laminate flooring and added Hilarys fitted window shutters. The master bedroom has both TV and telephone points with the second bedroom having a TV point. The bathroom with a rear aspect obscure window, includes wood effect tiled flooring, wash hand basin, WC, towel radiator and a white suite bath with power shower over. The additional fitted cupboard with white gloss finish is also included in the sale.

Across the hallway into the delightful kitchen/living room follows the consistency of the hard wood laminate flooring. This room, being on the southern side, is flooded with light and benefits from dual aspect windows, one of which has Hilarys fitted window shutters, and the additional French windows giving access to the garden. The kitchen area has ample wall and base units, worktops and a one and a half bowl sink and drainer. Integrated appliances include washing machine, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and the electric oven with four ring gas hob over.


Thorntons is approached via a five bar gate, leading to the generous driveway with enough parking for three cars. A stone pathway leads you passed a raised flower bed to the front door. The rear garden can be accessed on either side of the property with fitted gates. There is also outside power and lighting. The rear garden has been fully established with raised borders including the newly installed soil and shingle coverings which are kept back by attractive concrete wood effect planks. The raised beds include various plants, hedging and trees. An additional side area, currently used for the working part of the garden, can be kept enclosed and is useful for garden storage and waste/recycling bins. A very low maintenance rear garden but still very much designed for those garden lovers.
