DESCRIPTION

Occupying an elevated position with glorious countryside and valley views from all main rooms and well situated within a private road leading from popular Parc Stephney, a detached bungalow of good proportions with light and appealing accommodation and low maintenance gardens. The lower floor, currently a garage with additional work room/office (or potential fourth bedroom) and store room adjacent, has potential as a self-contained annexe or further main accommodation.

THE PROPERTY

Enjoying lovely far-reaching valley and countryside views over 'an area of outstanding natural beauty', visible from the tall bay window within the living room, as well as the separate kitchen, dining room and front terrace/balcony, this well positioned bungalow stands in a unique traffic-free position towards the head of a private road accessing just six properties. Some prospective buyers may be interested to know similar neighbouring properties have already converted the lower floor into further accommodation, which could provide a useful letting unit - subject to consents.

The current separate kitchen and dining areas could be incorporated to provide a superb family room to accompany the large living room with superb walk-in bay window. Three bedrooms are positioned to the rear and overlook farmland behind, one of which features an en-suite shower room adjacent to the main bathroom serving the other rooms.

As mentioned, the lower floor provides great scope for either a self-contained apartment, by conversion of the garage and large store adjacent, subject to all necessary consents. To the rear, a broad patio catches much afternoon sun and overlooks farmland behind, whereas the front terrace leading from the dining room also enjoys the view and sun during the earlier hours of the day.
