True bungalows are highly sought after and difficult to find, particularly ones that are in such good condition and as well presented as this lovely family home. Completely recrafted, redesigned and renovated by the current owners they have created a quite wonderful home, with care and attention to detail. The standard and level of presentation are a true credit to them. The property rests on a private, elevated Westerly facing plot, providing open countryside views to the front and also benefits from a beautifully landscaped private rear garden.
The traditional double fronted property features accommodation, which extends to approximately 1254 sq ft and briefly comprises of a traditional entrance hallway with original front door featuring a pretty leaded light window, and oak flooring. Leading from the hallway there is access to the two front double bedrooms, both featuring beautiful walk-in bay windows and views over to the Douglas Valley. The hallway also leads to a further bedroom or sitting room situated at the rear of the home and the property's beautifully appointed shower room. Refitted during the current ownership the bathroom consists of a large walk-in shower with rainfall shower head, a walnut vanity unit and w.c. The room is warmed by underfloor heating and features panelled walls and tiled flooring. There is also an additional double bedroom, running from front to rear of the property which could equally be used for a number of other uses including a home office/playroom or sitting room.
The rear of the home has been tastefully extended to create a true heart of the home, and incorporates a wonderfully sociable dining kitchen with living area. The kitchen has been fitted out with a stunning range of bespoke units with a painted finish and featuring oak accents. Included within the kitchen are a range of integrated appliances including double ovens, an American style fridge freezer, a five burner gas hob and contemporary styled extractor hood. There are pan drawers and the room is finished with accented tiling and granite worksurfaces. The extension features a vaulted roof with Velux roof lights. This stunning room also features a built-in dining area, perfect for entertaining and crafted to complement the kitchen. There is also a stunning living area with Bi Fold doors overlooking and leading on to the garden, and the focal point of a feature contemporary styled wood burning stove, sitting next to the slate wall and a stunning lantern roof flooding the room with natural light. Underfloor heating runs throughout the kitchen and living area too.
The gardens from this property are equally as beautifully mastered and tended. Highlights include a large hardwood decked area, leading from the house and perfect for al fresco dining, and a purpose built slate tiled gazebo, another ideal spot to enjoy the outdoor area, and a covered barbeque area. There are lawns, mature planting and trees and a perfect West facing aspect, which offers privacy as it is not directly overlooked. There is also a “catio”, a safe place for the family cat to enjoy the outdoors but provides peace of mind for the owner that the cat is safe and sound. The external space to the front of the home provides off road parking and access to the roadside single garage.
Standish village is a short drive away with a wealth of shops, eateries and facilities. The thriving village centre features flagship local restaurants, doctors, dentist and two supermarkets. Local schools are in high demand as the village offers four ‘outstanding’ schools at both primary and secondary level. There is excellent motorway and rail access and yet equally a short stroll will take you to the beautiful Douglas Valley and Haigh Country Estate.
