The driveway leading up to the garage and parking area is a short distance before the steps leading up to the front door. The Property
This individual detached bungalow is believed to date back to around 1930 and has brick and white stucco rendered principal walls with reconstituted stone features beneath a pitched and hipped timber roof structure covered in clay tiles.

The property has replacement uPVC framed, double-glazed windows and rear door with a composite part-glazed (double-glazed) front door.
The bungalow has been improved and modernised to an excellent standard and has bright, airy rooms with large windows commanding some excellent views from the high elevated position.

There are bay windows to the front and side elevations and French doors from the lounge onto the wide, sunny rear patio which has a modern pergola with retractable screens.
A long driveway sweeps up from Grimsby Road to a spacious gravelled parking area for several vehicles and giving access to a concrete sectional garage of generous proportions. Accommodation
