About this property

  • Tucked away at the end of a private drive, Kingsclere is a beautifully presented and spacious bungalow set in lovely gardens of about half an acre. The property was built in the 1950s and subsequently extended, and today offers well-presented and spacious accommodation with a pleasing layout, neutral décor, some wood flooring and the benefit of being arranged over a single storey.

    There is plenty of natural light throughout the house; the dual aspect sitting/dining room is particularly light and bright, with a large window to the front and sliding doors to the rear, and it has a wood burning stove fitted. The adjoining family room can also be used as a study and has bespoke fitted cupboards.

    The kitchen/breakfast room is well-equipped with bespoke painted wood cabinets and solid wood worktops; fitted appliances include a double oven and a dishwasher, with space for a washing machine and fridge/freezer.

    The three spacious bedrooms are all en suite, with contemporary fittings; a separate cloakroom completes the accommodation.

    Kingsclere is reached via a gravelled private drive which provides access from Beacon Road to six properties. Kingsclere has its own driveway to the front of the property, offering parking for several vehicles. In addition, there is a detached double garage, with a greenhouse attached at the rear.

    The front garden is mainly laid to lawn, opening out at the side to a kitchen garden with raised beds, a timber shed and productive fruit trees.

    The south-facing rear garden is fully enclosed, accessed via gates to either side of the bungalow and the garage; there is a sunny terrace spanning the rear elevation, and in the southeast corner is a detached home office which is insulated and has power and CAT 5 cabling connected. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees including camelia, silver birch and maple. About 0.52 of an acre.

    Agent's Note
    Kingsclere has right of way over the private driveway which leads from the road to the property and contributes to its upkeep.
