Huge detached homes, pretty cottages or contemporary properties often attract attention but the humble bungalow is sometimes overlooked. But there a plenty of advantages and charms to owning this kind of property.

There are the obvious plus points of easier accessibility as well as the flexibility to have more open plan living space. But having a bungalow, because of the way the foundations are constructed, also means you get a larger plot size than you would with a traditional two storey home. This gives more options when considering extending a house.


Another reason to consider a bungalow is it could be a way of living in your dream location. Although other kinds of homes may be out of your 828254reach, buying a bungalow in that pretty Cheshire village you have always longed for could be an option. You could then convert into a two-storey property, renovate, extend or rebuild on the plot, after getting any relevant planning permissions, and get your dream home.

There are some things to bear in mind like any additional security needed on windows and doors as all the rooms are on ground level. Theres also the value aspect. You wont get as much living space per square foot of land than you would with a more conventionally designed home. It is also probable there will not be as much storage space so you may need to consider this. The best thing to do is get looking at some of the homes around the county to see what is on offer and if youre planning on extending a bungalow, seek professional advice first.
