Description

St Ives is a beautifully positioned double fronted dormer bungalow which was originally built in the 1930's. Although the current owners have maintained the property to a good standard it is now in need of cosmetic refurbishment and also subject to the relevant permissions being sought offers an opportunity to extend and develop further. One of the key selling points of the property are the generous grounds (extending to almost 0.5 of an acre) which wrap around the bungalow to three sides and offer the views over the surrounding farmland.

The property is approached via Monksfield Lane which is a 'no through road'. Double vehicular gates give access to a private stone chip driveway which opens to the side of the bungalow and allows ample parking for vehicles and give access to the attached single garage. Set back from the road behind a lawned foregarden with planted beds and enclosed by a fenced and hedge perimeter.

From the driveway a stone chipped path leads to the UPVC double glazed front door set into an arched brick façade, set between the two symmetrical bay windows.
