A very pleasant bungalow situated in the popular residential area of Broughton Park, just a short walk from local amenities and on the doorstep of the most beautiful countryside, which can be enjoyed in abundance from the property.
A spacious, light hallway with built-in cupboard leads through into a bright, open plan living space with clearly defined sitting and dining areas. A wood burner in a smart, modern design lends a wonderfully cosy atmosphere to the living space. The sitting room takes advantage of a large picture window capturing the magnificent view of fields, mountains, trees and the river. Off the dining area is the stunning contemporary kitchen with white gloss units, plinth lighting, integrated appliances including an induction hob and a wine cooler, and striking splashbacks. A breakfast bar provides an excellent socialising area.
The principal bedroom is decorated in relaxing tones and similar to the sitting room, it has a large picture window. Both this and the guest bedroom have built-in cupboards and ample storage space. The further two bedrooms are currently set up as music and hobby rooms and they offer great flexibility for a variety of uses. The bathroom is smart and neutral with a full suite comprising of WC, sink, bath and separate curved shower cubicle.
The loft is accessed via a hatch with a pull-down ladder in the hallway. The loft has skylights and lighting, and has been boarded to provide storage across the footprint of the property. There is potential for the loft to be converted, subject to approval and all necessary planning consents.
From the hall, to the rear is the crowing feature of this property; the balcony with remote-controlled canopy to make the most of the truly amazing, far-reaching views here.
To the front of the property is paved, providing driveway parking for several vehicles and a patio area. The bungalow is set down from the road and pavement, creating a feeling of privacy. The well-stocked, mature garden is situated to the rear with a pergola and further patio and gravel areas, ideal for seating and outdoor entertaining. The garden also benefits from two large sheds for storage, one of which has an electricity supply.
