DescriptionThis handsome double fronted detached dormer bungalow occupies a substantial site of just over a
third of an acre approx. with excellent road frontage in this much admired and sought after residential enclave. Enjoying an unparalleled sense of seclusion both inside and outside, No 34 has one of the largest sites on Woodlawn Park.
Built in 1940 and as you would expect in homes of this era, there is a wonderful sense of balance with generous room proportions and extra ceiling height offering tremendous flexibility in terms of room layout, adjusting to different and changing family circumstances, so this undoubtedly could be the forever home.
The potential to extend is obvious and so many opportunities exist; to the side with the extra 5m width, space past the Garage and into the 59m m long rear garden and of course to further develop the attic space(subject to Planning Permission ). A stroll around Woodlawn will confirm the confidence in the area with a superb range of high-end refurbishment projects been carried out in recent times resulting in many impressive family homes.
Beautifully presented, in excellent decorative order , this light filled home has been sensitively updated, whilst retaining those much loved period features with panelled doors, dado and picture rails, stained glass windows to mention a few.
