Spacious two bedroom semi detached bungalow situated within a mature residential area within this sought after village of Gosfield.
The property benefits from being offered chain free, with good sized frontage and rear garden.
AGENTS NOTE We have been informed by the vendors that the property has a structural report mainly in relation to the garage and some very fine cracks in the rear elevation of the bungalow.
We have a copy of this report available for any prospective viewers. In brief please see below :
Upon inspection, we found that there is a fine diagonal stepped crack within the corner brickwork of the garage at low level. This crack is near to a Bay tree in the neighbours garden.
There are also some very fine cracks in the rear elevation wall of the bungalow around the rear corners of the French doors to the living room.
Conclusions & Recommendations
From our inspection of this property, we can confirm that the cracks observed are long standing, historical and very fine.
We would recommend that a single Helifix Helibar reinforcing bar is installed within the horizontal mortar joint across the corner crack in the garage. This reinforcing bar will strengthen this corner brickwork and prevent any further cracking. The mortar joints should be re-pointed using a mortar to match the existing colour and texture.
The fine cracks around the French doors should be re-pointed externally. Internally, the plaster should be locally removed, expanded metal lathing (e.m.l.) fixed to the wall, before re-plastering and redecorating to match in with the existing.
As a precautionary measure, we would recommend that the Oak trees at the rear and the neighbours Bay tree are substantially pollarded and the vegetation in the rear garden is trimmed back.
