  • Bedrooms: 3
A bespoke three bedroom detached bungalow occupying a delightful position overlooking a conservation area towards Chappel's viaduct with excellent proportioned accommodation presented in an immaculate order. The property is built via the current owners to a high specification; benefits from ample parking and double garaging. The property stands beside Chappel village Green and is accessed via a gravel track which also serves the millennium Green, providing excellent country walks as well as being walking distance of the facilities the village has to offer.

The property

An oak entrance door opens to a spacious hallway where there is access into the attic room with pull down loft ladder. The loft room has been designed with potential to create an additional room if required subject to any necessary planning regulations.

The sitting room has a focal fireplace with multi-fuel stove, a porthole window and French doors leading through to the conservatory of UPVC double glazed construction with doors out to the garden and also having fitted Sanderson blinds (electrically operated to the roof) as well as a air-conditioning unit. There is a dining room again with French doors out to the garden which could also be used as a fourth bedroom if required.

At the front of the property is the kitchen breakfast room, comprehensively appointed with roll top work surfaces with cupboard and drawer units and a range of matching wall mounted cupboards including display cupboard and shelving. There is a 1 1/2 bowl and sink drainer unit with Pure tap whilst integral appliances include a Bosch dishwasher, fridge, double oven and four ring electric hob with light and extractor hood above. There is also a built-in broom cupboard. A further door leads through to the utility room with matching tiled flooring with a door leading out to the outside. Fitted with roll top work surfaces with stainless steel sink, cupboards beneath and wall mounted cupboards, wine rack, space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer. A further door leads through to the toilet with low level wc and wall mounted wash hand basin.

Leading off the main entrance hall is a corridor serving the bedrooms. At the front of the property is the master bedroom, a relatively square room with views to the front and door leading through to its own ensuite facilities with tiled shower cubicle with glass door, vanity unit wash hand basin and toilet. Leading down the corridor past an airing cupboard is the main family bathroom providing a heritage suite with pedestal wash hand basin, corner panelled air bath, toilet and tiled shower cubicle. Beyond this are two further bedrooms both of them having built-in double door wardrobes.

Outside & gardens

At the front of the property is a white picket fence with five bar gate; openings for both vehicle and pedestrians leading to a shingled driveway turning to the front of the property with brick edged shrub bed and path to the front door. The shingle drive continues down to the side of the property to the rear where again is extensive parking and a large turning area where the detached double garage 17'7"x17'3" is found with two electric roller doors, power and light connected with loft ladder up to a boarded and shelved storage area and window and door leading to the garden. At the side of the garage is a block paved area suitable for either a patio or for parking a further vehicle, whilst at the rear of the garage the oil tank is found and there is a screened trellis storage area.

The garden itself has a small lawn with shrub bed and corner seat and is predominantly southerly facing in direction. We understand from the owner that there is an irrigation system placed in the garden. On the other side of the property a pathway continues down the side where there is an outside cupboard housing the oil-fired, recently installed boiler.
