SUPERB OPPORTUNITY: AN INDIVIDUAL DETACHED BUNGALOW IN A DELIGHTFUL VILLAGE LOCATION: FIRST TIME TO THE MARKET IN ALMOST 50 YEARS: MATURE GARDENS & GROUNDS OF APPROX. 1.2 ACRES (STS)
An exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire an individual and established detached bungalow built around 50 years ago by the vendors to their own specification and which has never been to the market since it was constructed. It has been a super family and retirement home and the studio for a highly regarded artist who was a member of The Royal Miniature Society. The bungalow is only now offered for sale following the passing of the vendors and provides a wonderful opportunity for a new owner to create their own piece of family history in this delightful village setting. It stands in established formal gardens and grounds of about 1.2 Acres (subject to survey) on the edge of this popular and sought after Breckland village with historic connections to The Knights of St John and the Crusades. The property adjoins unspoilt farmland and is only a couple of miles from the busy market town of Watton and about 20 miles west of Norwich and midway between Attleborough (A11) and Dereham (A47). The good size accommodation offers opportunities for alterations and perhaps extensions to meet 21st Century specifications and the specific needs and requirements of a new owner. The large rectangular meadow to the rear of the bungalow might serve as additional gardens or may offer scope for someone wishing to run a business with a need for extra space for storage or outbuildings etc. The property has the benefit of oil-fired radiator central heating and secondary double glazing and is available with immediate vacant possession and with no onward “chain” and internal inspection is recommended to appreciate the property and its location to the full.
