Full description


A superb extended and refurbished detached bungalow which offers generous and versatile accommodation extending to approximately 2140 sq ft. The property is deceptive in its nature and has changed dramatically from the original three bedroom bungalow having benefitted from a substantial extension to the front and side elevations to create a master suite with double bedroom, dressing room and preparation for an ensuite. Adjacent to the ensuite is a further fourth bedroom which would make an ideal guest room or office, or could be utilised in conjunction with the main suite to provide an almost self sufficient annexe for teenager or elderly relative.
The property has seen considerable improvement throughout and has been refurbished to a high standard with superb contemporary fixtures and fittings including fantastic family orientated kitchen with integrated appliances, high quality fittings and part vaulted ceiling with inset velux skylights and utility off. It also benefits from a beautifully appointed contemporary bathroom as well as a second double bedroom with further ensuite facilities.
The property has UPVC double glazing, gas central heating and due to the nature of its accommodation viewing is essential to appreciate the wealth and quality of space on offer.

The property occupies a pleasant slightly elevated established plot within a small cul de sac, set back from the road behind an open plan established frontage with large driveway providing off road car standing for numerous vehicles and leading to an open fronted car port and substantial double garage. The rear garden offers a high degree of privacy with initial main terrace area with steps leading up to a lawned area.
Overall viewing comes highly recommended to appreciate the accommodation on offer which in brief comprises large entrance hall, dining kitchen, utility, sitting room, three double bedrooms, one benefitting from ensuite facilities and family bathroom. An interconnecting door leads through to an inner hallway leading to bedroom 4 and the master suite comprising dressing area and main bedroom.
