A more comprehensive range of shopping, recreational and sporting facilities can be found in Winchester where there is also a main line railway station. The surrounding countryside including the South Downs National Park are renowned for their beauty and there are delightful walks and rides close by. The catchment schools are Kings Worthy Primary and Henry Beaufort Schools.

DESCRIPTION
This is the first sale of this detached bungalow in over 35 years. Situated in a very convenient location less than 1/4 mile from a bus stop and local shops on Springvale Road. Built in around 1959 the property is set in a sloping plot well back from and above Brooke Close. The property is in poor condition and requires renovation. Thanks to the size of the plot, it offers a great opportunity for a buyer to extend and to stamp their mark. The accommodation is as shown on the plan. Due to the sloping site, there are changes of level inside the property. From the sunroom there is the kitchen/breakfast room. Steps lead down into the living room with fireplace. A corridor provides access to 3 bedrooms and the bathroom.

OUTSIDE
6 Brooke Close sits in a generous plot of around 0.19 acres. To the front of the property there is driveway parking plus the dilapidated garage. The good-sized garden is mainly laid to lawn with a paved patio area with mature hedges and fencing to the boundaries. There is a useful rear access to a footpath.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
 
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
 
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
