NO UPWARD CHAIN.
EXTREMELY RARE opportunity to purchase this unique, and exceptionally well-presented Chalet-style bungalow, secluded in the privacy of a quiet corner block, in a neighbourhood-friendly, cul-de-sac. Immersed in wildlife and nature, this 'feel-good' countryside gem boasts a 'magical garden', and is idyllic for entertaining guests (both inside and out) and oozes ‘wow factor’. Love at first sight is guaranteed for this special home.
Unassuming from the outside, this well-appointed bungalow is surprisingly spacious and is different to 'the norm' as it is set on two levels. To the right of the garage door at the front, there is a storage room with a front glass paned door similar to the main entry door. (This could perhaps be the front door to a self-contained apartment or office if planning permission permits.)
Additionally, the property has a large attached garage/workshop/storage room offering the potential to be extended into or converted into almost anything; spacious office/storage/extra living space or a self-contained flat with off-road parking for 4 cars and shared use of 2 additional roadside parking bays.
Set within a short walking distance of a lively market town with all amenities, this sought after property has convenient links to major roads and public transport.
Bright, tiled passageway with storage cupboards and access to additional loft storage and recently installed Bosch GreenStar boiler.
Passage way leads up a carpeted stairway and spacious master bedroom (currently used as a guest bedroom and upstairs lounge/TV room). Bright, spacious and relaxing living area with 2 velux windows to the front of the property, a round window overlooking mature hazelnut trees to the side of the property and 5 dormer windows overlooking a 'green oasis' all around with stunning views down to the garden and fishponds below.
LOWER LEVEL consists of:
A tiled computer room with high speed fibre optic connection. The room has 2 high windows. Previously a utility room, it could be easily returned to it's original use or could be used as an extra storage room.
A tiled bathroom consisting of a step-up-and-into corner unit bath with powerful shower, hand basin, toilet, radiator, and heated towel rail, 4 storage cupboards.
Adjacent to the bathroom is a bright and sunny, carpeted, good-sized double-bedroom with 2 double-sized fitted wardrobes, and lots of additional cupboard space and 4 drawers for storage.
A welcoming, tiled lounge with open-plan kitchen area with integrated fridge and separate freezer included, sink, cooker, hob, washing machine (or dishwasher space) with ample cupboard space and worktops with a window looking into the sunroom and out to garden area.
Twin glass-pannelled doors lead into a bright sunroom (can seat 10), with sliding patio doors opening on to lush, lawn and mature gardens with fruit-bearing trees and shrubs, fish ponds and water features.
