The Property
The Broom is a detached bungalow sitting in a generous plot with the most stunning surroundings and far-reaching views extending to the Cheviot Hills. The property is believed to date back to around 1965 with versatile accommodation suited to a variety of needs, which is flooded with natural light enhanced by the high ceilings and impressive outlook.

The dining room and drawing room are both of a generous size, with double doors situated between the two, and are best placed to enjoy the fantastic views. The exposed wooden ceiling brings an element of character to both rooms, with an open fireplace in the drawing room providing a focal point to the space. The kitchen/breakfast room looks out to the central courtyard-style garden on one side. A range of fitted units provide ample storage with space for a range-style cooker, washing machine and dishwasher, along with a stainless steel sink unit. A beautifully bright area has space for a table and chairs, as well as providing external access. The garage can be accessed via a door leading off the kitchen. Situated off the dining room is a smaller room which could ideally be used as a study or fourth bedroom. A good sized cloakroom with WC and storage cupboard is located off the entrance hall, adding convenience and practicality.

A corridor, with two double fitted cupboards, leads off the drawing room through to the bedroom accommodation. The master bedroom, again with fabulous views, benefits from fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room with separate WC and airing cupboard. Two further double bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes, are served by a family bathroom with suite comprising bath with shower over and wash hand basin along with a separate WC.

Externally
A timber gate gives access to the tarmacadam drive which leads to the parking area at the side of the house. The double garage, with power and lighting connected, is integral to the main house.

Mature trees and hedging provide privacy to the well-maintained gardens surrounding the property, which are laid mainly to lawn with glorious rhododendrons, well-stocked borders, a green house, garden shed and wild meadow with wildlife pond to one corner. A charming south facing courtyard-style garden sits between the two wings of the property, with access leading out from the sitting room, and providing an ideal location for al fresco dining.
