Number 9 has been the subject of much improvement, having been extended in the areas of the dining room, the kitchen and the utility room. Together with the main bedroom and adding an en suite. All these extensions are to the rear. The bungalow now has a sense of space and good natural light, noticeably where there are dual aspect windows especially in the lounge area. The presentation and maintenance is good and although the sunshine has dried the garden, there are still glorious views to Bredon Hill. Double glazing has been fitted throughout the bungalow, there are two Velux windows and one light tube, bringing in extra natural light, and the double garage has an electric up and over door. The central heating boiler is fuelled by LPG gas with cylinders situated behind the garage. The frontage has been brick paved, which finishes the surface and provides a neat approach to this excellent property.
