Set within beautiful grounds of approximately 3.07 acres, this individually designed detached dormer bungalow offers spacious, well presented accommodation which includes 4 double bedrooms and 4 reception rooms. There are delightful gardens of approximately half an acre with a further 2.55 field to the side.

This outstanding, individually designed detached dormer bungalow is built in natural stone under a pitched roof. It originally started life as a 1960's flat roofed bungalow; subsequently our clients purchased the property in 1994 completing a comprehensive programme of redesign, renovation and extension to create the home that you see today.

All works have been carried out to a high standard with high quality fittings throughout. We expect that the successful purchaser may wish to put their own stamp on the property going forward. It benefits from double glazed windows, gas central heating, intruder alarm and is connected to all mains services.

The main entrance to the house is through an open porch which leads into the entrance hall. From here there are doors to the large lounge and dining room, both of which enjoy views over the gardens and adjoining field. A garden room with glazed doors out to the rear garden is accessed from the dining room and kitchen which is presented with a good range of fitted units. There are two further reception rooms, suitable for a variety of uses, but currently a sitting room and study / library. You will also find a smaller office, utility room and shower room on this floor.

Upstairs, within the roof space there are 4 double bedrooms each having angled ceilings which enhance the character. The principal bedroom has an excellent range of fitted furniture, large en-suite bathroom and a walk in wardrobe. Bedroom 2 is another generously sized room which features its own seating / dressing area. The other 2 bedrooms are comfortable double rooms. Also on this floor is a large, accessible shower room / wc and a large walk in linen / airing cupboard.

The property is accessed from the road via an electric gated driveway with a bridge over the picturesque brook which runs along the eastern edge of the plot. The driveway leads to a generous parking area and provides access to the detached double garage. Well maintained gardens with lawns, borders, mature trees and bushes surround the property on all sides. The gardens to the front are particularly attractive as they run down to the brook and feature wooden footbridges across.

Beyond the gardens to the side of the house there is a substantial field of 2.55 acres which would be ideal for grazing. The field also features a small wooded area with the brook running through. It can be accessed from the gardens by foot and there is also further gated access from the roadside.

Properties of this type and location are rare to the market, and therefore we highly recommend a full inspection to fully appreciate all that it has to offer.
