A very substantial, detached bungalow, providing 1787 sqft (166 sqm) of accommodation, set within a generous plot with a double garage and off-road parking. Solar panels generate between £1700-£1900 per year from Eon. The property offers scope for further expansion subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
The property is light and airy throughout, with spacious reception rooms and a separate wing for the bedrooms and bathrooms. The property is well planned with the principal rooms all having lovely views over the garden and the master suite having patio doors leading out to the terrace.
The property is accessed over a wide gravelled driveway and there is a spacious entrance hall with a walk in cupboard and cloakroom off. The sitting room is very generously proportioned and is dual aspect with windows to both the front and rear; there is a conservatory with views over the garden, a study/occasional bedroom 5 and a formal dining room. The adjacent kitchen is fitted with pan drawers and floor and wall mounted cabinets; there is a built-in oven and hob with extractor over, breakfast bar and space for a dishwasher and fridge freezer. The kitchen opens to a utility room fitted with a butler sink and further cupboards and there is space for a washing machine and a door out to the garden.
The bedrooms are all accessed off the inner hallway, with the master at the far end having a good sized en-suite and glazed doors leading out to the garden. There is a second double bedroom and two decent singles, all with built in wardrobes, as well as a recently re-fitted family bathroom.
The bungalow sits comfortably within its plot and has gardens to the side and rear of the property filled with grasses and wild flowers to encourage wildlife. The principal garden is south westerly facing.
The house benefits from solar panels which are owned not leased and they generate £1300 – £1600 per year from Eon.
There are existing plans available to convert the garage and extend to the rear of the property under permitted development. The planned works would provide a self-contained annexe suitable for a dependent relative. The parish council have also indicated that they may consent to the property being divided to provide two separate dwellings.
