Located towards the end of a no-through road, Shelwood is an attractive, cottage-like detached 1930s bungalow of excellent proportions with huge potential to update, extend and improve.

Arranged off a central hallway, the accommodation is both light and airy with a generous living room/dining room with bay window, three double bedrooms (bedroom 1 with bay window), kitchen and shower room. There is a good sized roof space/attic which is insulated and partly boarded. The property is fully double glazed and heated by a number of electric panel heaters.

Although dated, Shelwood has been well maintained; the kitchen has been remodelled and refitted with modern units and the large bathroom has been remodelled and refitted as a shower room.

To the front is a small, private lawned garden, enclosed with a mature hedgerow and shrubs. There is also a drive giving off road parking and access to a single attached garage. The rear garden is an excellent size, extremely private, with a large lawn, flower beds, shrubs, vegetable garden and a timber summer house.
