THE PROPERTY A detached bungalow which is thought to date back to the 1930's and which has been in the same family ownership for many years. The property has been upgraded and improved over the years, extended at the back with a large sun room/utility and having the benefit of gas fired central heating and uPVC double glazing.

With well proportioned accommodation. The front porch overlooking Eggbuckland Road and Compton Methodist Church opposite, a long central hall giving access to all other rooms. A good size bay fronted lounge with fireplace having gas fire and back boiler which services the central heating and domestic hot water, a separate good size dining room with airing cupboard, kitchen, a spacious sun room/utility set overlooking the back, two good size double bedrooms and a shower room/wc.

On one side of this stands a garage with lean-to workshop and on the other a garden shed. The property is in need of a programme of updating and refurbishment to bring it up to a modern uniform standard and as such does offer good potential.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
