SITUATION LOCATION Occupying a pleasant position within a small cul-de-sac, this spacious detached bungalow residence occupies a good sized plot extending to approximately 0.20 acre (subject to survey) and offers comfortable and versatile accommodation throughout.

This well presented home has been extended and now boasts a lovely principal bedroom with built in wardrobes and en suite shower room off. A particular feature of this room is its aspect onto the rear garden with patio doors onto a timber deck. In addition to this large bedroom there are at least four other rooms that could either all be used as bedroom accommodation or other living space including office, hobbies or play room.

The living room benefits from a cosy wood burning stove and is complimented by the lovely rear conservatory. Situated off the kitchen, this substantial room enjoys lovely view across the well tended rear gardens that enjoy a high degree of privacy.

The property has Upvc double glazing throughout as well as a full oil fired central heating system. There are also air conditioning units located in the lounge, conservatory, principal bedroom and other bedroom. These not only provide cool air for those hot summer days, but also provide heat- a useful secondary heat source.

Conserving energy has never been so important and this property is fitted with twenty seven solar voltaic panels that not only receive a feed in tariff but also store energy within four batteries totalling a capacity of 14kwh.

The sale of this exceptional property offers purchasers an excellent opportunity to purchase a home in a lovely location with delightful gardens and early viewings are recommended.

The bungalow is of timber framed construction with brick elevations under a tiled roof. The more recent rear addition is of cavity brick/block construction under a tiled roof.

SERVICES Mains water and electricity is connected. Mains Drainage.
Oil fired central heating to radiators.
Air conditioning Units (Cool & Heat) as listed above.

SOLAR VOLTAIC PANELS The large solar array fitted to the roof is wholly owned and supplies the bungalow's current
owner's electricity needs with a considerable surplus which attracts generous payments from
the electricity company for the surplus exports.
Mid-winter is clearly the least productive periods meaning there is a slight deficit requiring a
small net import of electricity from the grid. Historically this is typically November to February,
those most recent four months costing (after export payments) about £140 for the four month
period. The remaining eight months (historically) have brought in more in export payments
than import, resulting in a net payment from the electricity provider.
The difference between the cost of electricity imported (money out) and electricity exported
(money in) meant that for the calendar year 2023 the current owner paid nothing to the
electricity provider and received from them £1120 plus £53 from saving session exports
(https://octopus.energy/saving-sessions/).

Obviously solar panels can't generate any power at night; this is where the 14kwh batteries
also fully owned and fitted at the bungalow assist in minimising electricity imports when the
Sun is below the horizon. The batteries charge from surplus solar generation and optionally
from importing cheaper electricity from the grid in the early morning. The current owner has
selected the Flux tarrif from Octopus to facilitate this. These are the costs for electricity
imported and exported at the time of writing (end Feb 2024):
