Property Description

2 double bedrooms – shower room – entrance hall – sitting room – living / dining room – kitchen – garden room – private rear garden – driveway parking - no upward chain

This well-proportioned 1930’s semi-detached bungalow enjoys a near central village positon, just off from Histon’s High Street and within walking distance of the Guided Busway. The property offers versatility to suit individual purchasers needs and scope to further extend, subject to the necessary consents.

The accommodation briefly comprises 2 double bedrooms, 1 of which currently serves as a bay-fronted sitting room. The master bedroom includes built-in wardrobes fitted with sliding glazed doors. There is a spacious shower room with a walk-in shower cubicle, low-level W.C. and wash hand basin.

The sitting room has built-in storage and shelving, coupled with a gas fireplace with baxi-boiler. Adjoining the sitting room is a generous dining room with a large skylight and sliding door to the private rear garden. The kitchen has been fitted with a range of base and eye level units; integrated appliances include a dishwasher, oven and 5-ring gas hob with extractor over. Completing the accommodation is a double glazed garden room, serving as a versatile room and offering panoramic views over the rear garden.

Outside there is a driveway providing off road parking for 2 vehicles and an open-plan garden, principally laid to lawn and partially enclosed by mature hedgerows. A side gate leads to the west-facing rear garden which is mainly laid to lawn and has a paved patio area leading directly off the conservatory. There is also a small timber storage shed adjacent to the patio area and a few mature surrounding shrubs. A concrete path leads down to the foot of the garden where there is an additional timber storage shed.

The position, generous plot and exciting scope of the property demands an early viewing.

This property has no upward chain.
