The bungalows at Whinney Lane in Streethouse are a purpose built development of 26 one bedroom homes set in open plan gardens.

Each bungalow is self-contained with a modern fitted kitchen and bathroom suite and well-appointed bedrooms and living rooms. The properties benefit from gas, coal or electric fired central heating.

Conveniently located close to Featherstone town centre, Whinney Lane Bungalows is just a short bus ride – from supermarkets, local shops, pubs, clubs, churches, hairdressers, a fish and chip shop, chemists, butcher and a variety of sandwich shops.

All bungalows are fitted with a fire alarm which is tested regularly.
