The Property - Kantara is an attractive detached bungalow which is situated on the edge of a popular village and thus enjoys a stunning rural outlook across open countryside so beautiful it is immediately obvious why this area is designated as an AONB. This deceptively spacious and versatile property is beautifully presented throughout, having been extensively renovated under the current ownership, and generous, well-maintained gardens surround the property.
Upon entering the property, you are met with a welcoming entrance hallway which sits centrally within the ground floor and allows a smooth flow from room to room. The comfortable sitting room is a wonderful environment in which to relax and, with double doors leading into the conservatory, benefits from a leafy outlook onto the rear garden. With it's clear glass roof and doors leading to the sun terrace, the conservatory represents a highly desirable indoor/outdoor lifestyle and a serving hatch through to the kitchen/diner facilitates the use of one side of the conservatory as a more formal dining space, perfect for entertaining guests whilst enjoying a wide vista over the garden, and the other side is ideal as a bright and airy sitting area.
The kitchen/dining room is a very sociable room with a kitchen area fitted with a range of units providing plenty of storage, space for fridge and microwave and a built in electric hob. Domestically, there is a generous space for a dining table, superb for family meals, and a utility area with further fitted units among which is plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher as well as an additional sink. There is also a cloakroom on the ground floor, enabling this property to provide the modern conveniences required by a wide variety of prospective purchasers.
One of the many features which makes Kantara no ordinary bungalow are the bedrooms, which are all very well proportioned and enjoy fabulous outlooks as well as plentiful built in wardrobes. The master bedroom on the ground floor benefits from an en suite shower room which is fitted with a contemporary suite, and there is also a well appointed family bathroom. The fourth bedroom is currently used as a study, but could also be utilised as a single bedroom with a lovely outlook over the front garden.
During the course of the renovation, the property was greatly altered and improved internally, including the conversion of the loft space into two additional bedrooms, separated by a landing/study area. One of the rooms has an en suite shower room, and the other has plumbing installed and therefore offers the opportunity to have a similar en suite fitted. Other works carried out include the addition of the conservatory, attention to the electrics and an improved roof with modern insulation levels.
Outside - Kantara sits centrally within a generous plot approaching 0.4 of an acre which is thoughtfully divided into scenic pleasure gardens, fruit and vegetable areas, hard standings for parking and garage/workshop space. Approached from the lane by a tarmac drive leading through two pillars, there is a paved area to the side which, along with a gravelled area to the front, provide parking and tuning space for a number of vehicles. The garage is of one-and-a-half proportions and benefits from power and light with an electric up-and-over door and a pedestrian door to the rear garden.
Having been meticulously landscaped by the owner, the gardens for the property are very well stocked and enjoy various "rooms" including an attractive chessboard garden featuring alternating squares of gravel and flower bed. To one side, a pergola covered walkway with flower and shrub borders leads past the orchard to the rear garden where a large expanse of lawn is edged by mature beds and a paved sun terrace abuts the house before stretching almost the full width of the garden to create a sunny seating area beneath a mature apple tree, a lovely place to relax and dine al fresco or soak up the sun with a cool drink.
Beyond the sun terrace is an enclosed area of raised beds, perfect for vegetable growing and currently hosting a variety of fruit bushes. The orchard to the side of the property is planted with fruit trees and is laid to meadow, creating a haven for wildlife and insects. Also accessed from the rear garden, the workshop has potential for a variety of uses with power and light as well as a separate room to the side for tool storage and a lean-to behind.
