A MODERN family home with its own private courtyard is now on the market for less the half a million.

The individually designed five bedroom detached bungalow is being sold for just £450,00

The home sits in a private courtyard behind a secure gated entrance.

The location alone should be enough to attract you; quiet and secluded with excellent transport links and amenities nearby with views over the River Eden looking towards the city.

As you drive into the block paved courtyard, 3 Wordsworth Court can be found ahead of you to the left - there is parking for four cars just in front of the small brick wall.

The property comprises of a useful entrance lobby leading to the inner hall and from here there is access to all the bedrooms, the open plan kitchen which leads into the dining area and utility room, the family bathroom, an inner hallway to the playroom, and access to the living room.

There is a natural flow to this bungalow and the real treat is the very large living space which also incorporates the dining area, divided by a feature brick free standing fireplace.

The back wall of the bungalow extension is taken up with double patio doors and a four door bi-fold system, allowing the outside in; plenty of space for family gatherings/parties inside or out. The wide wooden patio offers more space to gather friends together on warm summer evenings.

The beautifully appointed kitchen invites you in and naturally flows through to the dining area.

The five bedrooms could offer alternative uses - office or workrooms - and there is a play room too which could be used for other activities.

The main bedroom is en suite and there are also two storage areas off this room.

The property has under floor heating throughout most rooms, with electric panel heaters in some rooms and is fully double glazed.

The rear garden is surrounded by trees, with views of the river Eden down the embankment.

The home is on the market with Purplebricks estate agents.
