Tenure: Freehold

Occupying a sumptuous plot of around 1.6 acres (TBC) is this rare opportunity to acquire a unique chalet bungalow within the highly desirable and semi-rural location of Thornden Wood.
'Littlefields' enjoys unrivalled, panoramic views of rolling countryside from all rooms, bringing nature with all its glory inside the home.
The property offers tremendous scope with further development potential to create a truly spectacular home, as well as offering a potential building plot with its own gated access (subject to necessary consents being obtained).
Internally the property currently provides three double bedrooms with the master bedroom occupying the first floor with en-suite bathroom.
The ground floor also boasts a triple aspect lounge/diner, large kitchen/breakfast room, shower room and a 'lean to' at the rear.
The bungalow sits nicely within the garden grounds, bathing in sunshine throughout the day and provides an incredible rural backdrop with rolling countryside and outstanding sunsets.
A separate detached outbuilding with double integral garage is found adjacent to the bungalow with a total of three rooms, kitchenette, cloakroom and a large first floor loft room. The outbuilding is currently used for business purposes, running as a successful beauty salon, and may prove ideal for other business uses, or it would be excellent as self contained annexe accommodation.
This is an exciting and exceedingly rare opportunity which must not be missed and all interested parties are urged to act quickly.

Main Services
The following mains services are connected to the property electricity, water and a telephone line. All services will be subject to the appropriate companies transfer conditions.

Heating
The heating and hot water is provided by a Ground Source Heat Pump which is a renewable energy product which uses stored solar energy or 'ground source heat' to provide heating and hot water as an alternative to dangerous and expensive fossil fuels. One of the advantages of Heat Pumps is that they can be combined with other systems such as Solar Photovoltaic (Solar PV) and Underfloor Heating systems to provide even greater benefits. This type of heating pump moves stored solar energy, sometimes referred to as ground source heat, into the home to provide a total solution for domestic hot water and all heating needs.

Heating Continued
Ground Source Heat Pumps not only make use of renewable energy in the form of ground source heat, they do so in a highly efficient manner. As Heat Pumps simply move energy rather than creating it by burning fossil fuels, they are capable of producing up to 4kW of heat using just 1kW of electricity. This gives a potential efficiency of 400%, sometimes stated as a Co-efficient Of Performance (COP) of 4:1*.

Windows
The windows of UPVC double glazed sealed units.

Tenure
The property is to be sold freehold with vacant possession on completion.

Council Tax
We are advised by the Valuation Office that the property is currently within Council Tax Band F. The amount payable under Tax Band F for the year 2016/17 is £2,241.79.
