Located at the higher end of Balcarres Avenue near Saint Stephens Church this is one of the larger style 3 bed true bungalows which have become incredibly popular with buyers due to their excellent location, close to Haigh Plantations and wigan town centre, plus their solid traditional construction. Bungalows in this location rarely come on the open market so we urge buyers act quickly to avoid disappointment.

Since our clients bought the property it has undergone extensive modernisation and upgrades including a rewire and all new central heating system being installed, high quality uPVC double glazing, pvc fascia’s, soffits and guttering and most recently (2020) a new roof.

The layout has also been improved by converting the smallest bedroom into a dining room and knocking through into the kitchen which is fitted with a range of sleek modern units with handleless units incorporating ample worktop space, built in fridge freezer, plumbing for washing machine (dryer in outside shed) double oven and electric hob. The property still features two double bedrooms with fitted robes located to the rear of the property enjoying quiet aspects over the gardens which are not overlooked and also comprises of an entrance vestibule leading through to a good sized lounge with a stylish quartz stone fireplace with inset living flame gas fire and 3 piece bathroom suite comprising WC, vanity walk hand basin and walk in bath and shower over.

On the outside, there is a walled front garden mainly laid to lawn whilst to the rear there is a fully enclosed and private garden with lawn and patio area, garden shed and good sized outbuilding/workshop together with a driveway leading to a detached garage. The rear is not directly overlooked.
