Single storey homes tend to be few and far between these days, not least because builders need to boost their profits by cramming as many houses as they can on their precious plots. Take a drive around the plethora of new developments springing up like mushrooms all around the town and how many bungalows will you find? Precious few, if any.
At Wilsons we’ve often found ourselves with more than our fair share of bungalows for sale and this month is no exception. It’s no problem extolling their virtues – how can they fail to attract many from an ageing population wishing, often needing, to downsize and get rid of the staircase? They also tend to be located in quieter, more established locations, in mature plots with a higher degree of privacy afforded by the presence of similar, single storey types.
It’s not just retirees seeking out bungalow nowadays. Younger buyers are buying from us too, preferring the additional ground floor space which is often open plan, providing family rooms, rather than a living room with a kitchen alongside. With so few bungalows available in Taunton’s newly developed suburbs and most of them situated in established residential locations, another major attraction is the close proximity of local shops, schools and amenities, far nearer the town centre.
We’ve no less than five examples, each with their own unique qualities, featured here this week. If you’re looking to buy, or indeed sell, we’ve a Bungalow Bonanza at Wilsons!
