THE PROPERTY We fondly remember selling Woodhayes in the early 1990's to a lovely lady who had lived here happily ever since. Sadly she has passed away and the property will enter its new chapter in life.
Woodhayes is an early 1930's dormer bungalow with an individuality and style which sets its apart. The property does require some attention and modernisation but presents such charm and originality within, and good proportions, to provide a wonderful opportunity to restore and create a very special home indeed.
There are two good bedrooms and a bathroom 'upstairs' whilst a spacious welcoming hall leads into four large and adaptable rooms, namely separate sitting and dining rooms, the kitchen and bedroom three. The kitchen has a utility room beside and off the dining room is a conservatory through French doors facing South, out to the rear garden. There is a bathroom/WC downstairs and plenty of cupboard and storage space throughout. A 'Worcester' gas boiler fuels radiator central heating and hot water and UPVC double glazed windows do wonders to insulate from road noise along Dracaena Avenue.
The garden is richly stocked but overgrown, where to the rear it is well enclosed and South facing. A drive parks two/three cars.
Recently Woodhayes has been professionally insulated and refurbished externally which will likely help in energy conservation and heating costs.
Mundic - A Clear, Class A mundic test is available for Woodhayes.
