Constructed in 1998 as a retirement property for a Senior Executive, this luxury bungalow has both modern and timeless design features. Welcome passive heat and light energies are gained from the purposefully placed south-west facing front aspect of the house, enabling natural sunlight to radiate through all of the front rooms of the house including the sunroom, en-suite bedroom and kitchen/living areas, bringing greatly enhanced and much sought after cost efficient heat and light comforts to the fortunate occupier.

Other on-site features include a well chosen range of mature shrubs which bring colour to the grounds throughout the year and also a house height copper beech tree, which enhances privacy. The neat lawn to the side of the house is just inside the extensive feature sandstone boundary wall with matching entrance piers, which sits along the public road and a metal cattle style grid provides the ideal drainage at the entrance.
