Description

To be sold for the first time in over 30 years: A detached, individual bungalow, providing well maintained and proportioned 2 double bedroom accommodation, occupying a superb, broad and slightly elevated plot at the 'foot' of this highly sought-after residential road, just moments' from Events Square, the harbourside, town centre, seafront and beaches. A long private driveway, ample parking, detached garage and surrounding gardens which provide great scope for further extension if required, subject to consents.

The Property

In our client's ownership for over thirty years, the sale of 'Woodside' provides an incredibly rare opportunity to purchase a detached, individual and particularly well proportioned bungalow, with immense scope for further extension if required (subject to consents) in one of the town's most sought-after areas.

Occupying an elevated position overlooking Lansdowne Road with views beyond to the town and a glimpse of the harbour, the property sits in an unusually broad plot, with long frontage to Lansdowne Road, with its own long driveway which culminates in a parking area sufficient for several vehicles, adjacent to which is a detached garage with outside 'gardeners WC'.

The property has been well maintained throughout, benefits from gas fired central heating and double glazing, with rooms which briefly comprise: An unusually large entrance hall, double aspect lounge, separate dining/living room, double aspect kitchen, two large double bedrooms, a particularly spacious family bathroom with, upstairs, an immense loft area which, subject to consents, provides great scope for conversion.

Surrounding gardens are a particular feature with lawned terraces, fruit trees, mature shrubs, and a long private pathway which leads to a pedestrian gate which opens almost onto Avenue Road.

Whether as a retirement home or family home with immense scope for improvement, we strongly recommend interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment.

The Location

Situated almost on the junction with Avenue Road, 'Woodside' is perfectly situated for nearby Events Square, National Maritime Museum and harbourside, just approximately 350 yards away.
