Property Description

Key features


Full description

This is a highly desirable, generous-sized, extended detached bungalow on the southern side of the city. It is within walking distance of local amenities on the High Street and in Boultham yet has a surprisingly rural feel.

Acorn Close, off Altham Terrace, is a development of six individually designed detached properties built in the early 1990s by a well-respected local builder. Occupying a good sized plot with delightful established gardens to the front and rear, this beautiful home includes a gas central heating system, uPVC double glazing to all windows and external doors and a detached workshop which can be readily returned to use as a garage if required. A 4kW array of solar panels installed on the property and belonging to it regularly yields income of more than £500 each year.

Internally there is a modern range of contrasting units with a built-in oven and induction hob in the kitchen, engineered oak flooring to most rooms and a most impressive garden room extension to the rear.

This most welcoming home is further complemented by built-in wardrobes to the main bedroom, recessed LED spotlighting to the majority of rooms, two WC's, rear gardens providing a high degree of privacy and garage conversion now providing a studio/workshop. The accommodation briefly comprises: Entrance Hall, Cloakroom, Utility Room, Breakfast Kitchen, Lounge, Garden Room, Three Double Bedrooms and Wet Room.

The most attractive well established gardens to the front of the bungalow are laid to lawn with stepping stone feature and surrounded by an abundance of shrubs, bushes, trees and a wide variety of flowering plants. A block paved driveway to the side provides vehicle parking facilities and provides access to the converted garage (some 5.35m x 2.55m ? 17'7'' x 8'4'' - currently being used as an art studio with storage area including a Dimplex electric heater, power points, Velux skylight window, fluorescent lighting, integrated fridge and freezer within the storage area, double glazed door to the side leading onto the rear gardens and double glazed pedestrian access door to the front). A secure timber gate to the side provides access to the most delightful, enclosed rear gardens which are not overlooked and are bounded by close boarded timber fencing offering a high degree of privacy and include a lawned area, an attractive paved terrace and beds and borders stocked with numerous flowering plants, shrubs, bushes and maturing apple tree. External power point and external cold water tap.
