This detached chalet bungalow occupies a lovely south-facing residential setting on the edge of the town and occupies a plot of about a quarter of an acre. It offers opportunities to extend, remodel or provide a replacement dwelling subject to obtaining the necessary planning and building consents. Whilst requiring modernisation the property appears to have been well maintained and offers generous family accommodation. The gardens are a particular feature and incorporate a wide variety of ornamental and fruit trees, shrubs, climbing plants, well stocked beds and borders. There is also an ornamental pond. There is ample parking fronting the property as well as an attached garage and car port.
NOTE: We are able to provide interested parties with a copy of a report prepared for our clients by a local architects practice that outlines the planning and development opportunities that may exist for the property, subject to planning and building consents.
Watlington is reputedly England’s smallest town with its origins dating from the 6th century. The town has a range of sports facilities that embrace football and cricket as well as tennis, squash and bowls. There are good local shops including a first class butcher and delicatessen and some excellent restaurants and pubs. Watlington Primary school and Rainbow Corner day nursery and pre-school have an ‘outstanding’ ofsted rating and senior education is provided by the well-regarded Icknield Community College. The Chiltern Hills rise above the town and offer some of the finest landscapes in south-east England. There is much on offer here for outdoor enthusiasts, cyclists and walkers as The Icknield Way (Ridgeway National Trail) passes close to the town. Watlington is also the heartland of the re-introduced Red Kite that now soar above the town’s roof tops.
