Full Details

The Property
32 Howe Downs is a 1930’s detached bungalow with pebble-dashed elevations beneath a steeply pitched slate hipped roof with twin round bay windows to the front.

The accommodation is now somewhat dated, but offers high ceilings and some original features.

In all the accommodation offers entrance vestibule and hall, large sitting/dining room with wood burning stove and floor to ceiling picture windows overlooking the gardens, kitchen with larder, shower room, large conservatory, utility with further wc and two double bedrooms. The windows are majority double glazed and heating is provided by a Glow-worm LPG boiler.

A mundic test was commissioned in 2023 and the property has been graded A1 and therefore suitable for mortgage purposes. The property is sold with no onward chain.

There are a total of three large outbuildings, all offering excellent storage, garaging and workshop space and one is fitted with basic kitchen and shower room facilities.

There is potential that one or several of the outbuildings could be converted into accommodation, subject to planning consent.

Gardens & Land
From the bridleway is a timber gate giving access to a large parking area with ample space for trailers, caravans and boats. From here the gardens extend all the way around the bungalow and are largely laid to lawn. Two ponds can be found within the grounds.

To the front of the bungalow is further hardstanding with iron gates leading directly to the roadway.

The paddock is level and currently laid to pasture with high hedge boundaries and a further store/outbuilding at the southern end.

A strip of garden runs the length of the paddock and separates this from the roadway. This area is suitable for compost areas and vegetable growing to name but a few.

On the opposite side of the road is a narrow strip of ground extending to approximately 0.2 acres. This area is completely overgrown and although plans show a building as being present on the site, access to it is difficult and so the size and the condition of this building is unknown.
