Full property description

A beautifully presented detached bungalow offering over 2500 sq ft of versatile and spacious accommodation including a separate one bedroom annexe. This five-bedroom property has seen numerous improvements over the years, including the installation of a new kitchen and bathrooms. The bungalow boasts an impressive 25ft vaulted extension overlooking the rear garden. This welcoming property sits within 0.31 acres of well-maintained gardens.

The glazed porch opens into a bright entrance hall with a smart cloak room and a large coat cupboard. Off this hallway is a comprehensively fitted kitchen/breakfast room, having direct access to the garden.

Also leading from the hall is the master bedroom which benefits from an ensuite shower room, comprising a walk-in shower with a Mira remote digital control.

Across the hall is a cosy sitting room with an open fireplace and French doors to a sunny south-west facing courtyard garden. Leading on from here is a dining room and then a study area, which opens into a magnificent reception room with a wonderfully high vaulted ceiling and skylights, plus an exposed brick fireplace encompassing a wood burning stove set beneath an oak bressummer.

To the front of the property, one will find three generously proportioned bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom with Fired Earth vanity units. All bedrooms include built in wardrobe cupboards.

This splendid bungalow has a wonderful feeling of light and energy and flows perfectly, while still adaptable to accommodate personal requirements.

OUTSIDE:

The sweeping driveway provides parking for numerous vehicles and leads to a detached double garage, with an electric door. Attached to this garage is a separate annexe with utility room, bathroom and space for hobbies or working from home.

The extensive gardens that wrap around the bungalow offer a herb garden, wild flower patch, a green house, shed and beautiful mature shrubs, climbers and trees including wonderful magnolias. At the front is an enchanting planted pergola with a seating area opened onto by French doors from the sitting room. Beyond this lies an expansive area of lawn that is perfect for family games.

Behind this pergola area, accessed by a double gate, is a passage-way wide enough to accommodate trailers and boats.

In addition, to the side of the pergola are twelve discreet roof solar panels installed just before the 2011 Feed-In-Tariff reduction.
