The Property
2 West Farm Lane is an attractive, stone detached bungalow which sits in a private position in a select development in the sought-after village of Matfen. The property is well laid out over two floors and offers extremely spacious and versatile accommodation with the benefit of two ground floor bedrooms.

Internally, the property is tastefully presented and the layout has been thoughtfully designed. The front door leads into a bright and welcoming reception hall which gives access to the principal rooms and has stairs to the first floor. The drawing room is located to the front of the property and benefits from an open fire with slate hearth and wood surround. The kitchen forms the hub of the home and is fitted with a range of cream units with complementary black granite surfaces, 1˝ bowl under-mounted sink, integrated dishwasher, space for a range-style cooker and fridge/freezer. There is ample space for an island unit or table for everyday dining and the stylish slate flooring leads from the kitchen through to a cosy sitting area which has a range of fitted book shelves. Off the kitchen there is a useful utility room which has a range of bespoke shelving and is plumbed for a washing machine. To the rear of the house there is a spacious dining room which has glazed French doors out to the decked terrace and garden; this room offers extremely adaptable space and could equally be used as an additional sitting room. A further reception room off the hall which is currently used as a garden room/guest bedroom has glazed sliding doors out to the rear garden.

There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor, one to the front and the other to the rear. These bedrooms are served by a spacious bathroom fitted with a freestanding cast iron ball and claw foot bath, wash hand basin set on a vanity unit and WC. A study, with window to the side of the property, completes the ground floor accommodation. Stairs from the hall lead up to a bright first floor landing with charming reading area and large store cupboard. To this floor there are two generous double bedrooms, both with a good range of store cupboards, and a fully-tiled shower room with large walk-in shower, wash hand basin, WC and bidet.

Externally, there is a gravelled driveway leading to the attached garage and a flagstone/gravelled path leads to the front door and a sitting area. The property owns the driveway from the entrance of the development and enjoys the advantage of additional parking whilst sharing the modest costs of maintenance equally with the other properties. The front garden is beautifully manicured with a lawned area and variety of mature shrubs and trees to the boundary.

The beautifully-landscaped rear garden, which can be accessed to the side of the property, has a decked terrace, lawned area and raised border with attractive low stone wall and mature planting. The rear garden offers a charming and private area to enjoy the peaceful setting and for outdoor entertaining.
