Full description

An exciting opportunity to finish a partially renovated detached property and create a wonderful, spacious village home. The property offers 3 bedrooms with large private gardens backing onto farmland. Garage, parking and workshop. EPC Band E.

The Property - The Bungalow is an excellent opportunity to acquire a wonderfully spacious blank canvas which has already been the subject of significant improvement under the current ownership and is now offered for sale in a partially renovated condition, allowing an incoming purchaser to complete and personalise this fantastic home. Internally the property is well proportioned, with various alterations to the layout carried out as part of the renovations in order to create generous rooms which are set up to accommodate every convenience expected by those living a busy modern lifestyle without sacrificing the sense of light and space which is characteristically found in properties of this type. An ambitious purchaser will recognise further potential for the extension of this property, with planning permission in place for a garden room to the rear, the base for which is already in place, and the considerable enlargement of the first floor to create a two storey home with family-orientated accommodation and bedrooms on both floors. With open farmland beyond the rear garden, this property enjoys a countryside outlook with far reaching views, particularly from the first floor where large glass windows been positioned to take full advantage of this endearing feature.

At present, the accommodation is arranged primarily on the ground floor with a master bedroom suite including interlinking dressing room and a room created to house an en suite shower room, a second bedroom with a lovely outlook across the rear garden, a kitchen/dining room which has been fitted with attractive, traditional style units beneath an oak work surface with integrated appliances, a spacious sitting room with a feature fireplace and a family bathroom, with a useful loft room/third bedroom on the first floor. A smooth, comfortable flow from room to room emphasises the sociable aspects of the property, with all principal ground floor rooms and the staircase to the first floor accessed from a central hallway as well as a door linking the sitting room and kitchen, facilitating an easy transition between places for dining and relaxing.

Many remedial works have already been carried out to the property by the current owners which have included a new central heating system with attractive, contemporary radiators fitted, attention to the electrics, a new roof and increased insulation levels. The property also benefits from a new kitchen suite, boiler and windows which include fantastic bi-folding doors in the kitchen/dining room which, opening directly to the rear garden, will allow a highly desirable indoor/outdoor lifestyle when weather allows with the dual purpose of ensuring that this room is filled with natural light. Changes to the internal layout have been carried out flawlessly with fresh plastering and a neutral scheme of decoration used in altered rooms, with other rooms remaining a blank canvas for personalisation. In all, the works already carried out make it easy to visualise the stunning property which can be created here with further attention.

Outside - The Bungalow sits centrally within a generous plot amounting to 0.25 of an acre, much of which is arranged as lawned gardens at the front and rear. The property is approached from the village road along a gated driveway which culminates in a parking and turning area to the front of the bungalow offering space for a number of vehicles, from which an up-and-over door leads into the garage. Also accessed via a pedestrian door to the rear, the garage benefits from power and light and currently houses the plumbing for a washing machine, although works have been started to create a cloakroom and utility at the far end. Storage is abundant within the grounds with a stone outbuilding which could be adapted to create a useful workshop or hobby area.

The rear garden is a generous and private area of level lawn which backs on to fields and enjoys a sunny aspect, making this a fantastic place to spend time out of doors when weather permits. Adjoining the rear of the house, an area has been prepared for the creation of a sun terrace, onto which the bi-folding doors from the kitchen/dining room would open, enabling a wonderful indoor/outdoor lifestyle including opportunities for dining and entertaining al fresco. Keen gardeners will recognise enormous potential for landscaping with plenty of space for vegetable growing, suggesting a touch of "the good life" to be achieved, whilst those who prefer relaxing outside will appreciate the easily maintained lawn to which the garden is currently laid.

Services - Mains water and electric. Private drainage (septic tank). Oil fired central heating.
