    About this property

    • Bridge Farm Bungalow is a contemporary detached home, built in 2012 by the then owners of Bridge Farm for their own use, though that plan was never realised. The house, which replaced a pre-war timber boarded chalet, has been designed to sit sympathetically within its grounds, attractively characterised by weatherboard-style Cedral cladding under a hand crafted clay tiled roof; the house was designed to a high specification, with good environmental credentials aiming to result in minimal energy bills. There is engineered light wood flooring throughout and under floor heating on the ground floor.

      The front door opens to an entrance hall, leading on to an open plan vaulted living room, kitchen and dining area, flooded with light by way of Velux windows, high windows set into the gable and two expanses of bi-fold doors opening to a decked terrace. The well-equipped kitchen is fitted with a range of modern shaker-style cupboards with deep woodblock worktops and a breakfast bar, with integrated appliances including a ceramic hob, oven, fridge, freezer and dishwasher.

      A hallway leads from the entrance hall to a utility room with cupboards, worktop and sink, and space and plumbing for laundry appliances. Continuing along the hallway is a family bathroom and two ground floor bedrooms, both with built in storage and one with an en suite shower room.

      An open tread staircase with glazed balustrade rises to the first floor, a versatile space which could be used as a reception area, a generous homeworking space, or an impressive principal bedroom, with views over the garden and fields unimpeded by the glass balustraded gallery. A sliding etched glass door opens to an en suite shower room. This floor also houses a plant room with good storage and a length of eaves storage behind sliding doors.

      Bridge Farm Bungalow is accessed via a right of way over a private driveway, which leads to a gated gravelled parking area for several cars, and a detached garage. The garage has an automated roller door, boarded roof space and a pedestrian door to the side. There is an underground rainwater harvesting system installed for garden watering/car washing.

      The garden lies to three aspects, mainly laid to lawn, private and very well enclosed by fencing and mature native hedging. A decked terrace wraps around two sides of the house, creating a perfect spot for dining al fresco and offering some lovely views over the neighbouring field and amazing sunsets.
