A generous, extended semi-detached bungalow with three double bedrooms and a spacious kitchen / dining room. Set in a quiet, off-road location with lots of privacy.
Highfield Close is a small cul-de-sac of bungalows off Rectory Road. The property was built in the 1940s to an ingeniously efficient-to-erect, aluminium-framed design by aircraft company Hawksley. The current owner has comprehensively updated, extended and improved the building including adding external insulation and a new brick outer skin, significantly improving the energy efficiency, aided by new double glazing. The work was all completed under the supervision of an architect and certified at completion.
A rear extension to the kitchen adds excellent extra space to create an open-plan kitchen / dining room that opens on to the garden and there is a well-proportioned sitting room with a fireplace. All three bedrooms are doubles and the original separate bathroom and WC have been combined into one large bathroom with a separate shower cubicle.
There are generous gardens with excellent privacy. The rear measures about 17m x 13m x / 57ft x 43ft and the whole plot around 0.12 acres. There is a large timber workshop measuring about 23ft x 8ft / 7m x 2.4m with power and light.
Parking is available on the close itself with a footpath leading to the property.
