An incredibly rare opportunity to buy this charming detached bungalow occupying a large garden site of approx. 0.4 acres occupying a prime setting adjoining countryside between Ripon and Littlethorpe.
Standing beautifully in its delightful corner position, this attractive residence displays typically distinctive mid-century characteristics including excellent proportions, large windows and the obligatory feature stone chimney. The oversized plot will hold huge appeal for those with an interest in horticulture and nature, with expansive lawn areas, a vegetable garden (with potential) and a wooded embankment to provide plenty of enjoyment.
There are also clear and exciting possibilities to develop and extend the existing dwelling to create a fabulous modern home, subject to the necessary planning and building control consents. Whether you sympathetically update the existing bungalow or redevelop into a contemporary family residence, the property will sit beautifully in the surroundings and be a wonderful home for the future.
A covered porch leads into an 'L' shaped hall where there are two storage/cloaks cupboards. A spacious reception room provides versatile sitting and dining space with a wide front window and further window to the side. The kitchen offers a range of units with plenty of storage and workspace, an integrated fridge, electric oven, gas hob and extractor, plus an additional store cupboard. The main bedroom enjoys a pleasant aspect across the garden and provides a built-in wardrobe range. Bedroom two enjoys the same garden aspect and has a fixed stairs to the loft. A bathroom completes the accommodation having a bath with shower over, vanity wash basin and toilet.
The afore mentioned loft has roof windows, lighting, power points, access to under-eaves storage, cupboard, and a WC with access to a further loft space.
A driveway bordered by neat garden areas leads to an attached single garage. The extensive gardens feature sweeping lawns and a large patio area outside the kitchen door. From the lawn you can step through a large former vegetable garden and continue to a wooded, wild garden area on an embankment leading up to the site of a former railway. In all approx. 0.4 acres.
It is rare to find a location which combines the peace and privacy of a country setting with ease of access to an excellent range of amenities. Indeed, a short drive or pleasant walk along the canal will take you in to Ripon where there are amenities, shops, restaurants, sporting facilities and excellent schooling options. A walk along the canal in the opposite direction takes you past Ripon Marina and a wetland bird sanctuary and continues into countryside. The property is well placed for the local road network which connects to the A1(M), A19 and other centres in the region.
