Penfold is an individual detached bungalow understood to have been built in the 1930's and later extended together with a loft conversion, having colour washed rendered and brick facing elevations with PVC fascias. The property has been under the current ownership for the past 30 years or so and there is mains gas central heating, replacement UPVC sealed unit windows/doors, PVC conservatory, kitchen with solid oak fronted units, bathroom with corner bath and a newly installed shower room with walk-in shower. The accommodation is spacious and versatile although some updating is now ideally required. Alternatively there is excellent potential for redevelopment, subject to planning.
The extensive gardens and fields are a further feature being very secluded with no immediate neighbours and includes a useful range of stables.
Penfold is a very scarce gem which might appeal to buyers with equestrian/livestock or small holding interests or for a redevelopment project.
Completion will not be available until the end of October 2017.
