LeGrys is delighted to bring to market this, two double bedroom home situated in one of the most sought after roads in Southborough Village – Doric Avenue. The property was built in the 1930s and offers spacious rooms. Outside you will find the attractive gardens to the rear and the property is a short walk from the picturesque commons and woodlands.
The front door opens into an entrance porch and then into the hallway. The majority of rooms in the bungalow can be accessed from the hall. To the rear of the hall is an airing cupboard that contains the hot water tank. There is also a large double storage cupboard. There is a radiator and the original picture rails. All of the doors in this property are the originals from the 1930s and are made of solid wood. The loft can be accessed from the hallway using the pull down ladder.
To the front of the property sit the two beautifully decorated double bedrooms. The master is located to left and benefits from plenty of light from the large window. The room is a large double with plenty of space for free-standing furniture as well as a stylish built in wardrobe with seven single doors and additional shelving.
The second bedroom, to the right of the hall, also has a large window. It is another large double room with space for plenty of furniture.
The large kitchen sits to the left at the rear of the property and overlooks the garden. It has plenty of storage space with many units at lower level and eye level. There is an electric four ring hob, extractor hood and oven. There is space and plumbing for a washing machine and fridge. The sink is positioned below the window which floods the room with light. Due to the size of the room a dining table fits in well and there access to the side of the property via the external door.
The family size bathroom is located at the centre of the bungalow. It has a bath with over the top shower, WC and a wash basin set into a granite topped vanity unit which provides useful additional storage. There is an obscured window with opener. The room is fully tiled with vinyl flooring.
The sitting/dining room is the last room to be found off the hallway and provides a spacious relaxing spot in which to unwind.

The rear garden is quiet and serene, with landscaped planted terraces. A patio area, perfect for outdoor dining sits near to the double patio doors that open from the sitting room. There are seating areas on the upper levels and in the back corner a good sized garden shed can be found.
The loft has potential for conversion, subject to planning permission. The property benefits from solar panels located on the rear side of the roof and has a new (18 month old) Worcester boiler with a gravity fed system and gas central heating throughout.
