With two bedrooms, located on a quiet cul-de-sac in a residential area not too far from local amenities and with easy-to-maintain gardens to the front and rear, this modestly-extended bungalow on the north side of Swindon in Wiltshire will tick a lot of boxes.
Well presented both inside and out, this property has recently undergone complete refurbishment, including new kitchen and bathroom.
Haig Close may be a cul-de-sac but it within easy reach of most of Upper Strattons amenities. The Co-op convenience store at Beechcroft is within walking distance, along with a selection of takeaways, a doctors surgery, bus stops linking the area with Swindons town centre while two dog-friendly pubs run by the Arkells brewery are also nearby. For first-time buyers with young children, the Beechcroft Infants School rated good at its last Ofsted inspection is almost on the doorstep, while Kingsdown School is just a little further away. The proximity of the M4 makes commuting longer distance by car relatively simple while Londons Paddington Station is just an hour from Swindon by train.
To the front, the property is separated from the road by an easy-to-maintain garden laid mostly to gravel with some hardy perennials adding a splash of colour. A block-paved drive leads to a car port with a single garage located behind while a short pathway leads to the front door and gated access to the rear garden.
A neat and tidy rear garden includes an artificial grass lawn, a gravelled seating area and a bed planted with a range of conifers. The garden is enclosed by a walled boundary, topped with timber slats providing additional privacy.
The front door opens onto a porch handy for storing outdoor shoes, with a second door then opening onto the reception hall. Internal doors lead to the two bedrooms, the living room and bathroom.
Overlooking the front garden, the spacious carpeted living room with a separate door opening on the modern fitted kitchen with parquet vinyl flooring and a selection of white base units with integrated washing machine beneath wood worktops with splash back tiles above all the work surfaces. An electric oven and hob with an extractor above, and a stainless steel sink with drainer and chrome mixer tap are incorporated into the design with additional wall units offering eye-level storage space above.
Double doors lead to the conservatory, also fitted with a parquet vinyl floor and down-lighting, with windows overlooking the rear garden.
Both the master bedroom with a window overlooking the front of the property and second bedroom overlooking the rear are equipped with hard-wearing carpets, double glazing and window blinds. The partially-tiled house bathroom boasts a stone-effect tiled floor, a bath with coloured side panel and an electric shower over, a sink with double-door storage cupboard beneath and a W/C with concealed cistern.
With double glazing and low-energy lighting throughout, this is a property which we fell would best suit so-called downsizers looking for a smaller home in retirement, first-time buyers with an eye on getting a foot on the property ladder or even an investor with an eye on the buy-to-let market. However, we would thoroughly recommend a viewing both to appreciate the high quality of the accommodation on offer and the convenient location.
