    About this property

    • A modern chalet bungalow having brick elevations under a tiled roof, with oil fired central heating and a combination of metal and UPVC windows. The property offers versatile accommodation across two floors, which includes a ground floor bedroom and bathroom. Most rooms in the house enjoy fine open views across the gardens to adjoining fields beyond. It is fair to say that the property would now benefit from modernisation and refurbishment yet offers huge scope for a buyer to personalise and improve to their own needs.

      The front door opens into an entrance vestibule and then into the entrance hall with cloakroom. The double aspect sitting room has a fireplace with log burner, and patio doors to the garden. The dining room has a serving hatch to the kitchen/ breakfast room, which is fitted with a range of units including a breakfast bar, double oven, ceramic hob, and dishwasher. Leading off is a boot room with doors to outside, a larder, and the utility room. This houses the oil fired boiler and has a range of units, a sink, and plumbing for a washing machine. Also on the ground floor is a spacious main bedroom with double aspect windows, built in wardobes and dressing table, and an en suite bathroom, with corner bath, separate shower, basin and WC.

      An open tread staircase leads up to the first floor landing with airing cupboard, there are two further bedrooms, both having wardrobes, and one having a dressing area leading off, a study, and a shower room with shower, basin and WC.

      Outside
      West Acre is approached through electrically operated gates, with a driveway leading to a parking and turning area to the side. The generous park like gardens extend to about 1.28 acres and are mainly lawned with a variety of specimen trees. They enjoy lovely open views over surrounding farmland, and offer peace and seclusion. From the drive a further electrically operated gate leads to a range of outbuildings including a large detached Garage with electric door, garden shed and a detached outbuilding providing a two room office, two workshops previously used as small garages and a garden store. The gardens have the benefit of an automatic lawn mower with docking station.
