'Windmill Cottage' is a generally well-maintained detached true bungalow standing within well-kept gardens, and benefiting from uPVC double glazed windows and doors, gas fired central heating and a detached single garage. It would, however, benefit from refurbishment of the kitchen and bathroom fittings that, although functional, are now looking a little tired. The property would suit owner occupiers and investors looking for an easy-to-let property to start or add to their portfolio.

Lounge With ceiling coving, radiator, TV point, fitted carpet and a double glazed window to the front elevation. Gas point for a gas fire set within a traditional fireplace. Breakfast Kitchen Fitted with a range of base, wall and drawer units in a laminate finish, marble-effect rolled-edge worktops, one and a half-bowl stainless steel sink unit with mixer tap, electric oven, gas hob with extractor hood above, and recess spaces to accommodate freestanding appliances. Ceiling coving, vinyl flooring, radiator, double-glazed windows to the rear and side elevations, and a double-glazed panel door opening to the rear. Bedroom One A double room with ceiling coving, TV aerial point, radiator and a double-glazed window to the front elevation. Bedroom Two Also a double room, again with ceiling coving, TV aerial point, radiator, double glazed window to the rear elevation. Bathroom With Pampas coloured suite comprises of a panelled bath with mixer shower attachment and folding glass screen, pedestal wash basin and WC, fully tiled walls, ceiling coving, radiator and a double glazed window.


The property is approached via a wide vehicular access to a gated side driveway, with an open lawn and planted border extending across the front. The driveway turns across the back of the bungalow to provide additional vehicle space if required and gives access to the: Detached Garage - 5.18m x 3.18m (17'0" x 10'5") with up and over door. Gardens The gardens wrap around to the rear and side of the bungalow, providing generous terrace spaces and a multilevel lawn with various well-stocked planting beds and borders. Set within a fenced perimeter, with summerhouse and greenhouse included.
