Why You'll Like It
Built in 1966 and occupying a vast enclosed and tucked away garden plot, this exceptional bungalow is a highly flexible property with a huge amount of future potential. The property is set back from Bell Lane and accessed via a private driveway (opposite the primary school and between the properties that front the road). The bungalow itself sits centrally in its plot and there is a great deal of parking to the front, ideal for those needing to keep numerous vehicles, caravan, motorhome or boats. There is a large detached garage with two electric up and over doors which has been used to house and work on up to four vehicles. The garage appears to offer the possibility of conversion to an annexe or separate property subject to any necessary consents being obtained of course. It is worth mentioning that the garden plot may interest developers interested in trying to obtain consent to build an additional property or properties (we cannot of course say whether this would be allowed).
The bungalow itself has a large entrance porch and L shaped inner hallway. The living / dining room spans the depth of the property and there is a cosy wood burning stove. To the rear is a large orangery style double glazed conservatory separated from the dining space by sliding patio doors. The kitchen is large enough to take a central farmhouse table making it the true hub of the home and is equipped with a range of base and wall units with extensive work surfaces. The oven, hob, extractor and dishwasher are built-in and there is space for an American style fridge. A practical utility gives a second access door to the front of the property and is ideal for coats and shoes etc. The oil fired boiler and hot water cylinder are housed there too. From the inner hallway there are three double bedrooms on the ground floor and the family bathroom which is beautifully appointed with a white bath suite with WC and basin set in white units with solid granite work surfaces. There is a separate shower enclosure with low maintenance continuous splashback. Next to the family bathroom is an additional cloakroom / WC which doubles as the laundry room having a dedicated space and plumbing for a washing machine. Next to the WC there is a door from the hall to stairs which lead to the converted attic room. We understand that the attic has been converted with building regulations approval making a large additional double bedroom with built-in wardrobe. This also has doors at each end to easily access the surprising amounts of remaining loft space. Outside, the rear garden has a large level lawn with attractive trees to the rear. There are two ornamental fish ponds and a large section of the garden dedicated to growing fruit and vegetables. There are two green houses, a fruit cage with black currants, gooseberries and strawberries etc, large vegetable plot with an adjacent space for a second one if required, polytunnel and a separate fenced area for compost / pot storage etc. There are two large lockable workshop / stores which are ideal for garden machinery etc but could perhaps be converted for working from home. This fantastic family house offers a great deal of potential and is perfect for those with hobbies and interests that require space and storage. The detached garage has solar PV panels on the roof generating additional green energy.
