Full description

Occupying a large and secluded plot which is accessed via a private driveway; are two detached bungalows to be sold as a whole. Designed and built by the original owner & architect in 1966 and then later purchased by the current vendors; the two dwellings would make an ideal purchase for a large or extended family.

Careful planning and attention to detail has gone into the design of these bespoke properties, that offer spacious and user friendly living accommodation with the versatility to accommodate both private and entertaining space simultaneously.

A spacious hall finished in Amtico flooring forms the central hub of the main bungalow; where the main reception areas and the bedrooms can be accessed independently of each other. To the west of the hall, double doors lead to the main reception area measuring 30 feet by 22 feet and comprising a lounge, dining area and kitchen. From the lounge french doors open out onto an enclosed south facing courtyard with raised flower bed and barbecue area. The large dining area features sliding doors opening out onto the beautiful west facing lawn. The kitchen is situated adjacent and partially open to the dining area and finished in modern white gloss with a central island. A sliding partition wall can be used to separate this large reception room if necessary.

A corridor leads east from the main hall to a further reception room/snug allowing privacy from the main reception areas ideal for reading or TV. Situated off the snug is a family bathroom, master bedroom with en suite shower room and also 4 equally sized bedrooms and a study room. One of these 4 bedrooms has been converted to serve as a dressing room to the master bedroom. A large utility room can also be found situated off the main hall as well as a cloakroom with WC.

The second bungalow was originally built to accommodate extended family and has indeed served to accommodate elderly parents and teenage family members over the years. It would also provide superb recreational space to house a gymnasium, swimming pool or cinema etc. This bungalow also enjoys a large south facing garden. Current accommodation comprises; hall, lounge with dining area, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, bathroom and separate WC.

Carefully chosen fittings and materials have been used throughout this bespoke property, as would be expected of an architect designing and building their own family home. 'Alumin thermovitrene' windows frames house sealed double glazed units and hard wearing commercial grade Marble Aglomerate floor tiles have been used in the main reception areas. The whole of the main property and the 2 bedroom bungalow is warmed via electrical underfloor heating, controlled with individually zoned thermostats, which when complimented with the highly insulated walls and roof help to provide a highly efficient property.

In addition to the long driveway; a canopy extends from the entrance of the main bungalow to create a car port providing enclosed and sheltered parking for 3-4 vehicles. External storage solutions comprise a detached concrete garage situated adjacent to the second bungalow and a timber shed. Steps lead down from the main driveway to the second bungalow and also provide access to the 'bunker' style storage compartment which has been excavated from below the driveway.
