DESCRIPTION
Kylelea is a three bedroom, detached bungalow with a twist. Kylelea is situated within an extensive plot measuring 0.74acres. The property was developed in the 1970’s. It has the tell-tale signs of being a house for entertaining, with ample living space and natural flow from the kitchen to the dining and living areas and direct access to the gardens. The home has three bedrooms with the principle bedroom having an en-suite shower room. Externally there is a workshop and various potting sheds benefiting from electricity supply, as well as poly tunnels which offer the perfect opportunity to start growing your own vegetables and flowers alike. With the extensive lawns and well established ponds the garden is ideally suited for someone with green fingers looking to make their own stamp on this expansive space. And now for the twist! Some bungalows of this nature sometimes offer a basement for storage and to an extent this property is not much different. However, the previous owner tasked himself with a challenge and created his very own indoor, fully heated swimming pool! The design of the pool was very carefully thought out and offers everything required such as a plant room and shower area. The pool is fully operational and has all relevant building warrants etc. Presently the pool has been drained, and is sold as seen. With the correct consents this space could be adapted to become a home gym, office, cinema, the possibilities go on.
