There is a particularly large loft space which is fully boarded with two Velux windows which is ripe for further conversion (subject to necessary permissions) and made into a particularly large family home. With the bungalow there is a formal garden, larger than average double garage and 42 acres of agricultural land currently farmed on an informal basis by local farmer, all with defined boundaries.
