DESCRIPTION A substantial 1970’s detached bungalow having reconstituted stone elevations under a tiled roof and affording generously proportioned three/four bedroom accommodation on a good size partly sloping plot with pleasant southerly views over Lower Somerton. The property benefits from gas central heating and is mainly double glazed and now offers scope for general updating and refurbishment. The spacious accommodation includes a reception hall leading to a good size kitchen at the front and an impressive 19ft square sitting room at the rear which also leads to the conservatory.
