This is a delightful 1920s bungalow built by a local builder and still retains much charm and character and original features. The Retreat is in a slightly elevated position away from the road and in is in need of modernisation and updating throughout. It could easily be extended in to the large roof space subject to planning permission. There is much scope to extend to the side and rear also. Sitting centrally in the plot it offers enormous opportunities for someone who is ready for a project.
