A detached bungalow set in a large plot with outbuildings. The property which was extended and modernised by the previous owner is thought to date from the 1930s. Occupying a large plot, the property benefits from a driveway that will accommodate several cars and has a frontage large enough for a trailer, boat or caravan. Double gates to the side of the bungalow open to a green driveway which provides vehicular access to the substantial former Engine Sheds at the far end of the garden. These were constructed to accommodate a traction engine and a lorry. They provide excellent storage space and offer scope to adapt or convert to craft and workshop space. The outbuildings, which have power connected, measure 9.99m x 6.32m and 12.9m x 3.81. The garden, which is a notable feature of the property, is attractively landscaped with lawns and established trees and shrubs.
