The Glade, Shirley

Guide price

Bedrooms: 2
A delightful two bedroom, double fronted, semi detached bungalow.


This well located semi detached bungalow is offered to the market for the first time since the 1980's and it is obvious it's been much loved and well cared for over the years. The interior is well proportioned and the accommodation is very versatile; there is a 14' kitchen breakfast room and a modern shower room, alongside three rooms that can be used however the individual chooses, but will act as two double bedrooms and a lounge which ever combination is chosen! You will find a really pleasant rear garden enjoying a southerly aspect, off street parking to the front, and an outhouse being used as a laundry/utility room. Almost identical properties in the immediate area have been extended to the side, rear and into the loft space providing additional bedrooms and living areas, the scope to do similar improvements here certainly exists, subject obviously to local authority consents. Offered chain free.


The property can be found on the left hand side of The Glade if travelling towards the Beckenham end of the road, with many amenities within easy reach. Bus routes, local shops and the Tram Link at Arena are nearby, as are Elmers End mainline railway station and Tram Link. You will also find a large Tesco's superstore and a selection of restaurants and cafes at Elmers End. The main Wickham Road in Shirley is around a mile away, offering more amenities still.
