Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
Spacious detached 2/3 bedroom bungalow to the centre of a good village, with views over the Marshwood Vale

The bungalow is believed to have been built in the 1980s expressly to take advantage of some far-reaching views to Conegar Hill, Lamberts Castle and Pilsdon Pen. The property has warm reconstituted stone elevations under a tiled roof and has in the last few years undergone a rolling programme of renewal and refurbishment. Of particular note are the bathrooms and the central heating system. The property is currently configured as a two bedroom bungalow but could, with the addition of some stud work to the formal dining area, be re-organised to create a third bedroom looking out to the front of the property.

The property is entered through an attractive formal reception hall which gives way to an inner hallway that stretches the width of the property. The accommodation is currently organised with the living accommodation lying to the centre and right hand side of the property and the sleeping accommodation on the left hand side. The sitting room lies to the centre and focuses on a contemporary wood-burning stove. Behind the sitting room flows into a garden room with roof lights, double doors to each side onto the terrace and large picture windows making it a particularly light bright room. On the other side of the sitting room there is a formal dining area that would make a good third bedroom. To the right hand side a door leads through to the kitchen which stretches from the front to the rear of the property with a kitchen area to the front equipped with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards with contemporary worksurfaces over and an oil fired Aga. To the other end there is a seating area with to one side a useful storage cupboard, with the whole room laid to an attractive ceramic tile. Beyond the kitchen there is a dog and boot room with three doors leading to the front into a useful covered log storage area, to one side into the integral garage and to the rear onto the garden. The garage is equipped with an up and over door, light and power with a workshop to the rear that could, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents, be adapted to become a home office. The principal bedroom lies on the left hand side of the property and is a particularly spacious room with a reconfigured ensuite shower room and extensive built in wardrobe space. Beyond the bedroom a door leads through to a conservatory that has double doors onto a front terrace. The second bedroom lies along the rear of the property and has a double wardrobe. The second and perhaps third bedrooms are served by reconfigured family bathroom equipped again in contemporary style with a lovely egg shaped bath as its centrepiece. The property is fully double glazed, has full oil fired central heating and has UPVC cladding to the exterior joinery.

To the front of the property a large five bar gate flanked by mature hedges leads through to an extensive area of driveway laid to tarmac, providing parking and turning for a number of cars and access to the garage. The formal gardens lie in front of the bungalow and are planted with a number of well-stocked herbaceous and shrub borders designed to give shape, colour and form throughout the year. To one side of the property there is a vegetable garden while to the rear there is an attractive private paved terrace that makes an outstanding entertaining area during the Summer months. Above the terrace there is further mature shrub planting while the gardens have a notable number of different varieties of apple trees. The gardens are for the most part enclosed by mature hedges, while on the West side the property adjoins open fields.
