A Condorrat cracker

This beautiful home in Kirk Place, marketed through Your Move at offers over £215,000, is described as an “executive” detached bungalow – and it’s not hard to see why.

Nestling in a quiet cul-de-sac it’s arguably an excellent example of the classic single-storey genre, with a generous “footprint” which includes a large (and very attractive) garden.

The pictures give an accurate idea of the style and degree of taste used in creating the decor scheme, but the look of the place is only the start of the story, because it’s in the purely practical details – for example the generous amount of storage space – that this fine-looking property really scores as a home.

It is unquestionably the sort of property which would appeal to many different kinds of potential buyer, wih lounge, dining room, kitchen-breakfast room – and also a utility toom with space for a washing machine and freezer.

In terms of accommodation the master bedroom is delightful, and besides offering the convenience of ensuite also has plenty of storage space.

The same sort of quality is followed through in the second bedroom, with its double wardrobe, and the third – it is an ensemble which any discerning owner would appreciate.

Meanwhile the family bathroom is very much an above-average fixture, with its walk-in shower cubicle, and jacuzzi bath.

Our summer has been drastic, thus far, but in even reasonable weather the gardens are a joy – neatly abetted by a cosy patio area, and with a screen of trees affording an extra degree of privacy.

Most prospective owners will be drivers, and this side of things is very well catered for with a driveway able to accommodate several parked cars, even before you consider the double garage.

Owner Mrs Jean Dunsmore said: “When I bought the house (as new) 26 years ago it was a place I loved on sight – as soon as I saw it I said: ‘This is the place for me’

“I’ve spent a lot of time and effort keeping the place up to scratch, because I wouldn’t have anyone buying and later saying: ‘She didn’t do that ...’

“It’s a great location with nobody looking into your property, and that kind of privacy may appeal to some people.”

In fact the property has matured very nicely in the nearly three decades since it was built, particularly given the care that has been taken to keep the garden in beautiful condition.

This is a property that really deserves to be seen – whether by a couple trying to bring up a family in perfect surroundings, or in fact anyone seeking this sort of quality – and privacy – in glorious surroundings.

An appointment to visit is highly recommended.
