An incredible opportunity to renovate a wonderfully positioned, two-bedroom, detached bungalow with huge potential to increase the properties footprint (subject to planning) to create a stunning grand design home in a little-known backwater of Congresbury.
Set off Wards hill and accessed via a share gravel driveway with just three other individual homes is Wren Cottage, a two-bedroom detached bungalow with wrap around gardens, a single garage and plenty of parking. Occupying a mature and spacious plot with numerous mature specimen trees, beautifully planted borders, paved terraces and even its own well!
Internally the bungalow offers an 'L' shaped sitting, dining room, kitchen with door to the rear garden, two double bedroom and shower room, there is a small lean too to the right-hand side with a glazed roof and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer that then links to a single garage/workshop. Whilst the property requires modernisation you could refurbished the accommodation as it stands and create a lovely modern bungalow and enjoy the superb discrete position.
Alternatively, for those buyers who are looking for the challenge of developing their own dream contemporary home, the potential is quite incredible, with huge scope to either extend the property laterally, and create a much larger single storey home, or even (subject to planning) create a further second floor of accommodation.
The mature and spacious gardens offer the property superb privacy and yet the local amenities can be found just a short walk away.
The property is offered to the market with the benefit of no onward chain.
