From 'OLD TO NEW' just for you The Strand

This fabulous bungalow has been talked about for many years by passers by, built in the early 50’s as a family home, it transitioned into a holiday home about 20 years ago after a family decision to share the waterfront home with holiday makers. In late 2019 the family decided to fully refurbish the old girl, with this in mind the plans of a full makeover took hold.
