Tucked away in a quiet cul de sac directly opposite a leafy landscaped green, this well-presented two-bedroom detached bungalow enjoys a highly convenient location just five minutes’ walk (500m) from Greystones town centre.
Newly redecorated throughout, the property has undergone key improvements in recent years, including the installation of quality timber laminate flooring throughout the house, the replacement of all windows with uPVC triple glazing and, most recently, complete insulation of the attic with spray foam insulation.
Thanks to the presence of a good-sized back garden, it also offers those with an eye for potential an exciting opportunity to substantially increase the existing floor area by building on to the side and/or rear. While such work would be subject to planning regulation, ample precedent has already been set at several neighbouring properties that have already added rear extensions.
Existing accommodation comprises a spacious living room overlooking the front garden, a kitchen/dining room looking on to the back garden, a family bathroom and two bedrooms, one with an ensuite bathroom.
Originally a three-bedroomed home, two previously existing bedrooms were combined to create the ensuite bedroom. If so desired, this conversion could easily be reversed to revert to a three-bedroom layout, either as a standalone reconfiguration or as part of larger, overall extension works.
Outside, the low maintenance front garden is entirely laid out as a hard surface driveway, providing off-street parking for two cars while still leaving enough space to set out flower planters and potted shrubs. To the rear, the west facing back garden is equally low maintenance, featuring a circular sun patio surrounded by gravel and a block-built storage shed, wired for electricity. Well-proportioned and almost square-shaped, as previous noted the back garden is large enough to comfortably accommodate a substantial extension to the property.
