3 bedroom detached bungalow for sale



Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated on the favoured southern side of Humberston Avenue this excellent detached bungalow has been substantially enlarged from the original and now offers well presented accommodation with the benefit of gas central heating, uPVC framed double glazing and a CCTV security system. The extensions to the property are not easily appreciated from the front elevation and in the Agents opinion this is a home which must be viewed internally to fully realise the extent of its features and appeal.

Principal features of the accommodation include the welcoming central Reception Hall (with a useful Cloakroom and a storage cupboard leading off), the Study which provides scope for use as an extra downstairs single bedroom if required and the stunning open plan main living area. This space combines three elements of form the hub of the home, namely the elegant Dining Area with a burnished cast iron art deco fireplace, the 19'2 rear Lounge with twin sets of patio doors opening to the garden and the contemporary styled Kitchen area. Comprehensively appointed with gloss black cabinets, butchers block style worksurfaces, silver metallic tiles, a number of integral appliances and a Rangemaster range cooker this is a special feature of this property. There is a separate Utility Room and a door links from the Reception Hall to the Staircase Hall which provides access to the bedroom accommodation.

The larger of the two ground floor bedrooms has been substantially extended and now includes a dressing area with ranges of gloss white wardrobes and patio style doors which open to the garden. The second downstairs Bedroom is positioned at the front whilst the Bathroom is really rather special with its striking black tiling, twin round washbowls, multi jet quadrant shower cubicle and double ended bath.

At first floor level there is a very good size bedroom with lovely views of the rear garden and currently used as a hobby room/studio. A smaller room (without a window) adjoins the bedroom and although used at present as an office area, would perhaps be suitable for the creation of en-suite facilities for the upstairs bedroom if required.

The extensive gardens are a real asset to Sleepy Hollow and are principally lawned to both the front and the rear. Established hedgerow and substantial gates provide privacy at the front and there is plenty of gravelled parking for vehicles in addition to the enclosed driveway which leads to the garage. A useful workshop adjoins the garage and a particularly notable feature of the rear garden is the elevated west facing pavilion designed for al-fresco dining and enjoying the afternoon sunshine. Hedges and trees again provide privacy at the rear and there is also a greenhouse and a paved patio.

The property lies within easy reach of local shopping facilities in New Waltham and the popular resort of Cleethorpes is only a few minutes drive away. Regular buses serve the general area.

All in all Sleepy Hollow is a wonderful dormer bungalow with options to live principally at ground floor level with upstairs space for occasional visitors or to use the first floor bedroom on a permanent basis. The open plan living space is very on trend and viewing can be arranged through the Agents on Grimsby 311000. EPC Rating - E
