Thought to have been built in the 1960s, Willow Croft is an individually built bungalow offering a generous amount of indoor space (1,869 sq/ft). There is scope and space to extend the bungalow (subject to the necessary permissions) if required, and although the property would benefit from some updating, it offers a huge amount of scope for a new buyer to put their own stamp on it.
The sitting room is a dual aspect room with one wall being fully glazed from floor to ceiling taking in the views over the neighbouring fields. An archway gives access through to the dining room with sliding doors to the conservatory and off to the kitchen/breakfast room.
The kitchen is in need of updating but benefits from a breakfast area (currently being used as a utility area) and has lovely views over the rear garden.
There is a family bathroom and a separate shower room, hallway and 2 useful storage cupboards.
There are also 3 bedrooms, (2 doubles and 1 single room) all of which currently have built in wardrobes.
Gates off the lane give access to the driveway and parking area where there is ample space a number of cars.
