What appealed to you most about the property? It’s unique wide spacious frontage and the privacy afforded in the south facing garden area.
How long have you lived in the property? Twenty six years.
What have you done since moving into the property? We first extended to create a spacious south facing living area, then upgraded the internals and ensured we had lots of storage space including access to the loft. We have also further extended to add a luxurious and roomy en-suite off the master bedroom. Moving outside, we developed a part walled private garden and patio with fountain feature. And more.
Why are you selling? Due to a rare opportunity we were able to obtain a run down property in the area, to re-build and extend to our specification, and is now complete.
What is your favourite room and why? Whilst each of the rooms has its own character and benefits, the favourite has to be the south facing living room with French door access onto the private garden and patio area, which is ideal for both relaxing and entertaining.
How close are the amenities?
Ashton town centre, bus routes and schools are all in walking distance. Park and tennis courts are nearby.
To whom would this property be best suited?
Being a spacious detached true bungalow makes this property very versatile, and would accommodate a family or anyone just wanting to live at ground floor level. It may also appeal to anyone wanting a large ground floor with opportunity to extend into the loft, subject to planning approvals.
