The property requires STRUCTURAL WORK/ REBUILDING AND COMPLETE REFURBISHMENT THROUGHOUT and stands on a plot exceeding 1/3 acre, so has POTENTIAL TO DEVELOP subject to planning consent. Whilst we are not specialists in this field, with severe cracking to many walls evident, we believe that the bungalow is almost certainly suffering from subsidence and that therefore it is not suitable for mortgage purchase, so, sorry, CASH BUYERS ONLY PLEASE.
