The current owners have done a great job in extending and modernising this semi-detached bungalow. With quality bungalows becoming harder to find as many choose to extend into the roof, it is refreshing that the current owners have chosen to extend on the one level. Having said that there is still the opportunity for a future owner to extend into the roof if required, subject to local planning regulations. The extension has close to doubled the property in size giving spacious, light and modern open plan living accommodation with a new kitchen that opens via bi-fold doors to the back garden. There are three bedrooms and two new bathrooms plus a useful utility cupboard. There are gardens front and rear with driveway parking to the front, with further parking on the road. The original part of the house is traditionally constructed with rendered and painted elevations under a tiled pitched roof. The extension is mix of attractive timber cladding and rendered elevations under a flat roof. The property is double glazed throughout with gas central heating and an ‘C’ EPC rating.
Steps lead up to the contemporary oak front door front door which opens to the hallway which in turn leads the open plan living area. Although open plan the layout is such that each area is well defined, but could be organised in a number of different ways depending on requirements. The new kitchen runs along the wall to the right with plenty of modern white storage units above and below the grey stone effect work surfaces with inset black composite 1.5 bowl sink and drainer. There is an inset electric hob with extractor over and integrated electric oven/grill below, plus an integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer. Next to the kitchen is a useful utility cupboard with space for washing and drying machines. Adjacent to the kitchen at the rear of the house is the dining area with plenty of space for a large family dining table. The area currently used as the sitting room is in part of the original house that has been opened to the new extension. Bi-fold doors open almost then entire back wall of the house to the garden, allowing plenty of light to flood in to the living area. Grey wood effect vinyl flooring has been laid throughout this area.
A door from the rear of the sitting area, and a door from the hall leads to an inner hallway off which are the three bedrooms and bathroom. The largest bedroom has a large window to the front of the property and bedroom two looks to the rear. Bedroom three has a dual aspect to the front. The bathroom has a new white suite with chrome fittings comprising bath, wash basin and WC. Off the hallway adjacent to the front door is a further bathroom with wash basin WC, shower cubicle and heated towel rail.
The house is on a level plot with gardens front and rear. Off the back of the house is a full width deck which can be fully opened to the house with bi-fold doors. The back garden is mostly laid to lawn and fully fenced with wooden fence panels broken up with hedging to one side. A bank with steps lead up to a lower picket fence at the far end of the garden separates the garden from the woodland beyond with a gate giving access.
