A characterful bungalow with four double bedrooms, mature gardens and ample parking.
This unusual home is situated to the south of the village, in a generous plot surrounded by beautiful and varied gardens. The property was built in 1973 as a bungalow and later updated, with a new bespoke kitchen installed in 2015, new roof and windows in 2016, and improved drainage in 2020. The house is notable for its pyramid glazed roof over the main reception room, which forms a striking focal point both inside and out. The house retains a lot of its characterful features, including wood panelling around the peaked roof, a stone fireplace and wood ceilings.
The accommodation is laid out over a single storey and yet is deceptively spacious, extending to almost 1800 sq ft with a light, airy feel throughout provided by the high windows. The house is entered onto the dining area and open plan kitchen which looks out to the vegetable garden the kitchen has a useful pantry and utility room, the latter leading out to a storage area. From the kitchen is the central reception room with its pyramidal dome with wonderful views of the garden and beyond. With the accommodation leading off from the central area. An office provides a second reception space which would work brilliantly as a study or snug, and there are four good-size double bedrooms, two of which are en suite, the other two sharing a shower room.
The outside space is very impressive and has been landscaped to include several distinct areas for enjoying the views. A charming seating area surrounded by ornamental Greek-style columns is planted with herbaceous borders, while the main lawn is dotted with a variety of well-established trees and the boundary features 60 Scots pines. There is a lovely Japanese garden, bisected by a gravel path over a pretty water feature, a patio to the side of the house for outdoor dining and a number of raised planters designed to make a kitchen garden. A circular driveway winds around a stand of mature trees and provides excellent parking. Also notable are the outbuildings, which include a car port and two attached storage rooms, a tractor shed and storeroom, a large shed and a workshop with car access.

I just love seventies architecture and this is a cracking example of a very different bungalow which happens to sit in the middle of glorious established gardensRoo FisherProperty agent
