    About this property

    • This substantial bungalow has two distinct areas and would lend itself to the formation of a principal dwelling, with an annexe at the rear (subject to necessary consents). In addition, there is a 3,480 sq ft outbuilding with its own drive, all in grounds including a pool and field extending to 1.89 acres.

      It's not until you step inside that the size of this property is apparent. From the large ‘L' shaped entrance hall there is access to three/four bedrooms. The principal bedroom is at the front, comprehensively fitted with a large en suite bathroom and adjacent is the family bathroom. The main reception room extends to nearly 30 ft with double doors and full-height windows framing views of the garden. The room features a redbrick fireplace with log burner. A bespoke kitchen lies at the rear of the bungalow, comprehensively fitted with modern grey tones contrasted with granite tops with an island providing a breakfast bar at one end. Linked at the rear and self-contained is a potential annexe, with its own entrance. This is currently used as a games room, sauna, utility, and cloak room, and would make a great annexe needing minimal alterations.

      A drive passes beside the gardens at the rear to a detached outbuilding of approximately 3,480 sq ft with concrete parking and a turning area in front. The principal area is about 20.25m x 12m and at one end are two offices, a kitchen and a cloakroom.

      The property has two entrances either end of a wall-and-railing enclosed frontage, back-planted with mature Red Robin hedging which provides good privacy. The front lawns are dissected with a horseshoe drive which carries on the spur driveway to the outbuilding. Behind is a substantial terrace, behind the reception rooms and kitchen, making for a lovely area for summer dining. Well-cared-for lawns are bordered by mature plans, predominantly evergreen. Towards the end of the garden is an enclosed pool with a paved surround and pool house. At the bottom of the garden is a leisure field, laid to grass and enclosed by post-and-rail fencing.

      The land and buildings are wholly within Flood Zone 1 wherein there is a low risk of flooding. The site lies within the Metropolitan Green Belt outside of any defined settlement boundary, albeit the land has existing residential properties to the immediate north and south, recently developed.

      Mains water, electricity and drainage. Oil-fired central heating. Gigaclear fibre broadband.
